(Part) of what makes Tuck great: Tripod Hockey

Dennis D. - T'14, November 21, 2012

I grew up in Florida.  My idea of ice is a snow-cone.  Despite a preview of cold weather during my college days, I have spent the last six years in Los Angeles.  When it comes to ice-skating, I'm somewhere between "Novice" and "Ouch! That had to Continue Reading 


Partner groups, clubs, and activities

Claire B. TP14, November 19, 2012

Tuckies are pretty awesome, but let's be honest... so are Tuck Partners (TPs).   They continue to impress me in so many different ways--too many to delve into in a single post.  For now, I thought I'd post a broad overview of the numerous and diverse Continue Reading 


Kids @ Tuck

Dennis D. - T'14, November 17, 2012

Tuck can be something different to every student; it can provide the launchpad to switch careers, the skills to progress up the corporate ladder, or the time to build your network and launch your own business. It is what you make it. As a parent, though, the academic and recruiting Continue Reading 


Tripod Hockey: not just for students!

Claire B. TP14, November 14, 2012

I think it's accurate to say that most of us had never played ice hockey before Tuck, yet it's a huge part of the culture here.  How can that be?  Well, you don't have to know how to play hockey--or even how to skate--to get Continue Reading 


What Does 24/7 Learning Mean?

Sumeeta K. - T'14, November 09, 2012

Tuck is such an amazing place for so many reasons.  One of the things that stands out to me when I think about what sets it apart, is the 24/7 learning environment that being in Hanover fosters. In Tuck terms, 24/7 learning means that the potential for my knowledge base to Continue Reading 


Rosi Kerr Small Group Lunch

Laura T'13, November 07, 2012

One thing that clubs do is bring speakers on campus to discuss current events, initiatives, or goals.  The Net Impact Club, a club focused on social impact activities, businesses, and organizations, recently brought Rosi Kerr, the Director of Sustainability at Dartmouth, to campus to have a lunch with a Continue Reading 


Halloween

Marcy H. TP'14, November 06, 2012

Halloween in Hanover was great fun.  On Halloween afternoon we got all the kiddos in Sachem Village together for a short parade to show off their costumes followed by a pizza party and, of course, trick-or-treating.  It was really something to see our little neighborhood overrun by all Continue Reading 


Visiting campus as a partner

Claire B. TP14, October 30, 2012

When Will was applying to schools, he of course registered to visit Tuck and participate in an interview while here.  Part of the registration process was identifying whether or not he had a partner, and if so, if his partner (yours truly) would be be coming to campus with Continue Reading 


It Takes a Village

Marcy H. TP'14, October 09, 2012

Many people talk about the tight-knit community here at Tuck in general, and among the families living at Sachem Village. In the two months that we have lived here we have found it to be as warm, welcoming, and open as we had heard. The warm smiles and easy playdates Continue Reading 


The Reaching Out MBA LGBT Conference 2012 in Boston – organized in part by three Tuckies!

Blog Guest, October 03, 2012

It is fall in Hanover, which is arguably the most beautiful time of the year.  Leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and you are able to re-introduce your favorite warm weather gear!  Most people are out hiking, biking, fishing – enjoying all the upper valley has Continue Reading 


Trombones, puppies, and apple crisp

Claire B. TP14, October 02, 2012

Question: what do trombones, puppies, and apple crisp have in common? Answer: My last Sunday involved these wide-ranging activities, and I learned about them all through resources specifically designed to connect Tuck partners. By way of background: I considered myself pretty proficient at facebook... until I moved to Hanover as Continue Reading 


Dancing in the Rain

Juliet H. T'14, September 11, 2012

In the interest of full disclosure, Hanover is limited in shall we say ‘traditional’ forms of entertainment. The Upper Valley lacks the major sports teams, world-class museums, and famous restaurants that characterize the cities from which many of us hail. And for this, I could not be more Continue Reading 


First year over! (Best year of my life)

Justin R T'13, May 27, 2012

Wow. I can’t believe my first year is over. Fall A and B, Winter and Spring Terms. All over. What an experience it’s been. It was pretty difficult zeroing in on a particular topic to write about for this post because so much has happened in Continue Reading 


And… it’s over

Ken F. T'12, May 22, 2012

My first class at Tuck was the Yellowtail case in AGM. My study group had spent literally hours preparing it - reading, analyzing, calculating, debating - and we were relatively efficient. Some groups went as far as to check flight schedules between cities mentioned in the case, to figure out Continue Reading 


Facebook Valuation

Luis G - T'13, May 16, 2012

The dividend discount model is one of the valuation techniques I learned in Financial Statement Interpretation and Analysis, a class that prepares students to effectively analyze and interpret financial statements.  Basically, the dividend discount model says that the value of a company is worth the discounted sum of all Continue Reading
