MBA Student Life: Game Day at IU!

Welcome to my inaugural MBA Program Blog post.

"What day is it?" "GAME DAY!"

Negotiating your way through a top MBA program is a whirlwind lifestyle. Making time for your personal hobbies (sports for me) is a key MBA survival tactic. Indiana University not only offers one of the nation's best MBA degrees, it also plays home to one of the greatest college game day atmospheres in the nation. Today I'll talk about Hoosier football game day in the grove.

The fall tailgating scene at the grove across from IU Memorial Stadium is one of the most underrated tailgating venues in the country. There are over over 40,000 students here plus a slew of alumni who lay siege to a single, massive grassy field with lots of shady trees on game day.

The beautiful IU campus is electric on game day! As an MBA student you have a great opportunity to take full advantage of the game day experience. The MBA program has our own epic tailgate party for every Hoosier home game. Chef Goose will dazzle you with his grill skills (I highly recommend his firecracker shrimp ka-bobs). DJ Peterman will drop mad beats on a huge sound system owned by the MBA program (oh, it's quite the "Party in the USA"). Flip cup tourneys abound.

Game day is a great way to get some essential work/life balance while in the Kelley MBA Program. In future blogs I will talk about Hoosier basketball game day at Assembly Hall and other sports-related events and traditions.

Go Hoosiers!
