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

On ethics

Avanti M. T'14, October 03, 2012

Now that I can breathe after the mad Fall A rush, I'm sitting at a Starbucks in New York contemplating the unique little community that Tuck has, and I cannot be more grateful for the honor of being able to call it mine. The things that some would call Continue Reading 


Fall A Roller Coaster

Oksana C. T'14, October 02, 2012

Fall A – first four week term of our first year at Tuck is over. It was… When I was thinking how to best describe it, first an image of a race car came to my mind. It starts immediately, develops speed in no time and an enormous weight Continue Reading

Fast Five

Andrew M. - T'14, September 19, 2012

I have been at Tuck for five weeks, and it is hard to believe how quickly time has flown by, how much fun I have had, and all that I have learned.  What’s not hard to believe, given all that I knew about Tuck before I arrived 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

The Honeymoon Might be Over

Juliet H. T'14, May 11, 2012

As an admit from Early Action, I have had the great luxury of basking in my acceptance to Tuck for a few months now. But the realities are starting to sink in.   December 16, 2011 turned out to be a good day. Incidentally it was exactly one year after a moderately Continue Reading 


Home is where the dorm is . . .

Pete. T'13, April 23, 2012

One great thing about Tuck is the living, learning community. As a single Tuckie (or one without a TP up in Hanover), you have the opportunity to live on campus in the dorms your first year. I never thought that after I left the dorms in undergrad, I would find Continue Reading

In the spring term, us first years get a crack at two elective courses.  This is exciting, considering so far, we’ve just had core courses.  Two of our four regular courses are core, two are elective, and there is an extra major project, the First Year Continue Reading
