Tepper Cross Cultural Potluck

My afternoon started with me & my friend assembling all the ingredients that we would require to make ‘Gulab Jamun’ – a sweet Indian delicacy  – for the Tepper Cross Cultural Potluck hosted by South Asian Business Association(SABA). Halfway through, we thought it was going to be a disaster but we kept going. The dish […]

#10YearChallenge

Tepper School of Business | Life at Tepper Student Experience Blog

There is a new social media hashtag going around that you might be familiar with: #10YearChallenge. As a Tepper student with a marketing concentration, we could spend time pondering about the virality of this and the implications on marketers and data miners. But, that’s not what this post is going to be about. 2009 – […]

Diversity Weekend (+Pittsburghaversary)

Last weekend was the Diversity Weekend at Tepper. My favorite event! Exactly a year earlier, I was an attendee still not sure whether an MBA was right for me. A Tepper student guided me through school during the Friday social event; Dean Dammon presented during the dinner on Saturday; and Leanne Meyer and Jarred Lazear provided […]

Coming Out Stories, a Celebration of LGBT Journeys at Tepper

When you think of October, perhaps you think about the arrival of fall, the superfluity of pumpkin flavored foods, or the thrill of Halloween.

When Spring Break Is Actually Winter Break Part II

While some lucky folks (read: smart planners) were frolicking in the sun and sands of Southern U.S. or Mexico, my husband and I decided to road trip around east coast this spring break, and while sudden and extreme bouts of winter made our journey quite difficult, we still somehow managed to make the most of […]

Red & White (and Blue) Party

What happens when the Partners Club, the Wine Club and the Data Analytics Club walk into a bar (or a co-working space in this situation)? A Winter Olympics themed Red & White (and Blue) Party of course! With food and wine from around the world, super cool (pun intended) costumes, and real medals for all, […]

Can you have it all?

The decision to pursue your MBA probably came after weighing a plethora of difficult choices. You might be moving to a new city or country, you must have calculated the opportunity cost of lost wages when resigning from your job, and you may have said teary good byes to friends and family back home.
