The Eighteenth

Ken F. T'12, April 01, 2012

My wife said to me this weekend that our class gift should be to name the 18th hole at Hanover Country Club after the Tuck Class of 2012. I kind of like the juxtaposed frivolity and endurance of her idea. And it got me thinking: the Tuck MBA is quite a Continue Reading 


Madrid Exchange Spring Break Trip

Laura T'13, March 31, 2012

Over spring break, I went with a group of 22 other Tuckies (and a number of great Tuck Partners) to Madrid.  We went on a very short exchange program (1 week) with the IE Business School.  While there, we had wonderful classes taught by some of the “superstar” Continue Reading 


Preparing for Cases

Luis G - T'13, March 29, 2012

  Perhaps this is a bit early to think about but I’m sure there are a few admits wondering how to prepare for case studies.  My first piece of advice is to not underestimate the time it takes to prepare for a case.  It’s Continue Reading 


Where in the World are the Tuckies?

Pete. T'13, March 26, 2012

If I had a dollar for every mile travelled by Tuckies over Spring Break, I would be retired on a beach in the Caribbean. Over the two week break, Tuckies spread out across the globe! From Kosovo to South Africa, Brazil to Sun Valley, you could find Tuckies on 6 continents. Continue Reading 


Talk of the Town

Ken F. T'12, March 23, 2012

Last year, World Bank President Bob Zoellick spoke to my class at Tuck. He has since resigned the post. This morning, President Obama announced Dartmouth College President Dr Jim Yong Kim as his nominee to succeed Zoellick. Historically, the EU nominee has been appointed for the IMF job, and the Continue Reading

From snow storm to daffodils

Ken F. T'12, March 22, 2012

When my wife and I left Hanover for spring break, I had to dig the car out in the middle of another March snow storm. In the first week of the month, almost a foot of snow had accumulated in town. Oh, how times have changed! We returned from a Continue Reading 


White Cliffs

Ken F. T'12, March 07, 2012

I finally handed in my last term paper of Winter Term on Monday afternoon - there's only one term left in my Tuck career, and fewer than 100 days until graduation! My goal for Spring Term is to complete a triathlon. It's kind of a big deal to me. Continue Reading 


I survived the Winter Term (Off to Brazil!)

Justin R T'13, March 06, 2012

Before I update you on my life the last two weeks, let me first apologize for not yet giving you the VIP tour of La Chateau PV 440. Finals week + technical difficulties. I’m working on it, and hoping to have it up and ready for your viewing pleasure when Continue Reading 


Places to Visit: Maine

Luis G - T'13, March 05, 2012

    Prior to Tuck, I had not spent too much time in New England and the surrounding areas.  Now that I'm in Hanover, it's the perfect time to visit nearby cities.  One of the places that I recently visited is Portland, Maine.  Portland is Continue Reading 


Tripod Championships.  Tuck. Puck. Love.

Laura T'13, March 01, 2012

As I’m sure you’ve heard before, hockey is more than a game here at Tuck; it’s a way of life.  The majority of people play hockey, no matter their athletic background (or even ability to skate).  It is tons of fun and Continue Reading
