When I need a break from my MBA course curriculum, I take a moment to enjoy the MBA social life with friends from the program. One of our favorite things to do is enjoy the amazing local food around Bloomington. Last year, the first year women in the program created a ladies dinner club where we could get together once a month away from school and just catch up outside of the walls of Kelley. We take turns hosting each month, and activities in the past have included things like grabbing dinner at a local restaurant, manis/pedis, and game night.
This month, we visited Anatolia, an amazing local Turkish restaurant found on 4th street. Inside the walls of this quaint, character-filled restaurant, we found a cozy table and just chatted about classes, the job search, and how fast time flies while in the program. We ordered a variety of different dishes, but the one thing we all had in common was a bowl of the amazing red lentil soup, and it was the perfect way to warm up on a fall day. As my time as a second year continues to fly by as a part of a top ranked business graduate school, I am looking forward to more moments like this, and of course, any excuse to get out and enjoy some of Bloomington's amazing local food!
