My Day at Harvard Business School.

No.... I don't attend Harvard.
But my brother-in-law does!
He's in his first year at Harvard Business School.
If you read last week's post, you know that I recently visited Boston.
One of the most exciting highlights of our trip was attending a class with my bro-in-law.
My husband and I both went, and when we were introduced as guests, the whole class started clapping for us! We felt so special! (I've heard you get a standing ovation if you're a spouse or parent).
{I felt like an idiot taking this picture, but I had to have it!}

I seriously loved the subject matter of the class. It was all about marketing Pepsi products, and social media. I don't really know why, but I took notes like a madwoman!
I loved, loved, loved it, and I can see why he loves it too!
They had a special guest CEO from Lipton there to participate in the class discussion.
I literally walked out of that class, my heart pumping, just because it was so exciting.

The set up of the classroom is so conducive to a good debate. It was so fun!

It was really neat getting a tour of the campus. 
Can you believe how gorgeous this, ahem, study hall is?
Whoever decorated this place went all out. 

I was so in love with this private, quiet library, just for the business students.

I was so intrigued with all the innovative ways they are using technology on campus, like with these Hubway stations (rent-a-bike).

And these solar-powered trash cans/compactors.
(That's my bro-in-law Levi).

We took a tour of the undergraduate part of campus. I learned so much from the tour. I loved every second. I will spare you the historical details, but if you're ever in Boston, make sure you tour Harvard. It is beautiful, and so incredibly interesting!!!








(Wigglesworth Hall. That name totally made me giggle)!

(That's my hubby).
There's a legend that says if you touch the foot of John Harvard, you will have good luck getting into the university someday.

  6. I've been to Boston once before and I'm officially bummed I didn't tour the campus. How cool you got to sit in on a class. I totally would have taken notes too!!! I think you can actually take free online courses from there in a couple of subject areas. Kinda cool too.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. Had fun looking through them...even my husband got a kick out of the pics too.

    Take care,

  15. That is the greatness of Harvard education. With subject they also teach values for the students. Through paper writing help i got to know about all these things. Getting an ovation will makes us feel really special. I think you had a wonderful and exciting trip to Boston. Harvard has good class rooms with well equipped infrastructure. You are lucky to be as guest for their class and get ovation on your arrival.
