One of the great things about being a student at Sloan is the opportunity to meet a sheer amount of amazing people. At Sloan this is made easy by a vast amount of social gatherings and events. Every so often we have a C-Function (as described earlier by Amrit). During our SIP week in October I attended one themed “Oktoberfest” with traditional German beer and food. To fulfill the experience they also had a German band doing the music of Oktoberfest.
But the C-Functions are not the only source of getting together with fellow Sloanies across the programs. The Student Life Office (SLO) also hosts a series of dinners and lunches. Every second week Throughout the fall there is a Course XV Dinner where 15 students will get together at a restaurant to share a three-course meal paid for by the SLO. Furthermore, as we are celebrating the 100th year anniversary of Course 15 there is also a series of Course XV Lunches with the Dean and just the other day there was a big celebration reception at The Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. These are just some of the more “formal and organized” events there is of course also the option to pick a random table during lunch hour.
In short, while being at Sloan there is no excuse for not meeting extraordinary people.
