The winter term is now over and, with it, the on-campus recruiting process that has occupied most of my non-class time since mid-September.  I came on campus unsure of how on-campus recruiting would go (my goal is to switch careers into management consulting) but, with the help of T13' 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
