Top 5 Reasons to Apply to the Tuck Diversity Conference

By Ijele Adimora T’20

The 25th annual Tuck Diversity Conference will be held November 1, 2019. Apply now!

1. Experience what Tuck has to offer

Coming to DivCo, you will experience firsthand how our tight-knit, diverse community makes Tuck both unique and familiar. Our student body—made up of veterans, former educators, and students from all over the world—consists of some of the smartest, kindest, and most collaborative people I have ever met. At DivCo, we will provide you an opportunity to get to know the students that help set Tuck apart through traditions like our small group dinners, and through the chance to be hosted by a current Tuck student! Not only will you leave with an understanding of life at Tuck, but you will also get to hear about ways to transform your career through Tuck Career Services, career clubs, and Tuck Centers. 

2. Connect with Tuck alumni

You’ll be able to experience our immersive, life-long community firsthand. Tuckies are some of the most devoted alumni you could ever meet. Whether it is offering advice on how to successfully navigate recruiting, or simply relaying their experiences in leading companies, our alumni are always willing to help out a fellow Tuckie. And you’ll get to meet plenty of alumni while you’re on campus. Ramsey Jay Jr. T’05, president of Ramsey Jay Jr. & Associates, returns for DivCo every year to deliver an inspiring address. And Aisha Barry T’10, Vice President & General Manager of Patient Management at Medtronic, will deliver the keynote address.

3. Visit the Upper Valley

If you have never experienced autumn in New England, then a weekend in Hanover will surely be worth the trip. Tuck is nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, with the fall foliage and the endless mountains creating a picturesque place to be a student. Picking apples and pumpkins in the fall, playing tripod and going skiing in the winter, or going on a hike on one of many beautiful trails in the spring are just a few ways you can get acquainted with our home. While I was not too big on the outdoors when I first moved to Hanover, living in the Upper Valley has given me a chance to step outside of my comfort zone, and given me an appreciation for how rich life outside of the city can be.

4. Meet your fellow classmates

One of the best parts about DivCo is that you get to meet like-minded peers who will likely become your classmates or colleagues. The purpose of DivCo is to extend our inclusive and open environment to future members of our community. Having a chance to connect to one another in a welcoming environment will allow you to be your authentic self and build tighter bonds with your fellow attendees. Many of my closest friends at Tuck are people who attended DivCo, and it is a great way to get to know people before even starting business school.

5. Blow off some steam

One of the lessons I have truly learned at Tuck is how to incorporate balance into my life. Tuckies work incredibly hard, but we also make time to have fun! During DivCo, you will have a chance to step away from your daily hustle and bustle, and see how Tuckies relax. No matter if you are an extrovert, introvert, or mix of both, there is definitely room to find your social niche at Tuck.
