MFins are heading to the last week of the semester, we finished classes on last Wednesday and we are now preparing for our finals. The Fall Term would be officially over on December the 20th with the Analytics of Finance final (15.450). That would be the last time when my full class is meeting together in one classroom (this is the last required course for everyone). Eventhough the past weeks have been very busy between final papers, homeworks etc. we have been able to attend some social activities with the Sloan community. Today I would like to write about the C-Functions, which are very representative of our School.
As quoted from the Sloan website the C-Functions are "[...] weekly, student-organized celebrations [that] have been a much-loved staple of after-hours fun for years. C-Functions (short for Consumption Functions) are open to the entire graduate community (including faculty and staff) and are held both on campus and off, depending on the evening's agenda. Sometimes C-Functions are designed to celebrate the food and music of a particular culture and feature organized entertainment; other times they are informal opportunities to unwind and simply enjoy the company of fellow students."
C-Functions are opportunities to share not only with your classmates but with the Sloan and MIT community in general. During the Fall Term I have been able to attend to the Korean C-Function and of course the Latin C-Function. Since words wouldn't be able to capture the joy of the C-Functions, I would like to show you some pictures:
And there is also a video posted in youtube that was used to illustrate the culture that our countries in Latin America share (Latin C-Function Video).
With that I go back to study!
Enjoy the Holidays!
