Chase the Chicken

By The Chicken

The premise of the Chase the Chicken Bar Crawl was simple: teams of MBA students would search different outside bars near Stern for two chickens. Every time they went to a wrong bar, the team members would each have to consume one drink. Once they found the bar with the chickens, they could join in on drinking from the open tab! However, there was a time limit – you only had as long as your fellow students didn’t close out that tab.

Originally, I signed up for the event because 1) it sounded super fun, and 2) affordable drinking.…

B-School Newspaper Coalition: November Roundup

Last semester, The Oppy reached out to other business school newspapers around the country to get a sense of how they’re running their papers. After meeting with several editors-in-chief from MBA programs, we decided to form a coalition with a small but growing group of top graduate business schools. We are going to share some of their best articles from their monthly issues.

For November, we have ChiBus, The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

A Tale of the NYC Marathon

It was the perfect fall morning. I had only gotten four hours of sleep, despite daylight savings. But that’s to be expected. It’s rare to get a good night’s sleep the night before a big race. With marathons, you typically focus on getting a lot of sleep the week leading up to the race. I hadn’t managed that either, but I knew I’d survive.

Stern Somebody Presents: Josue Gonzalez

The Oppy staff is proud to continue a feature called “Stern Somebody,” telling the stories of remarkable classmates and how they became the exceptional people they are today.

​​Josue Gonzalez is an MBA2, Bronze Star Recipient in the U.S. Army and small business owner. He’s also going to McKinsey in the fall after a successful summer associate internship. What an underachiever. Joking aside, Josue is among the most genuine and helpful people at Stern, with an easy laugh and quick sense of humor. I had the pleasure of first meeting Josue through consulting prep. Despite my clear lack of experience and comfort with casing, he patiently guided me along and helped me work on my frameworks.

Stern Singles Presents: Khalil Romain

Meet our November’s pick for Stern Singles, Khalil Romain. Khalil is a MBA 2, the co-president of AHBBS, VP of Corporate Relations for SGov, VP of Corporate Relations for GMA, and VP of Club Partnerships for Canna Business. Not only is he an extremely active member of our community, he is one of the most genuine, optimistic people you can meet, as a group of MBA 2s puts it, “Khalil is the heart and soul of Stern, you would be lucky to have him.”

This interview has been edited for length and clarity. 

So as I told you earlier, I consulted with my group of girlfriends, you came very highly recommended.
