If my last post kept you hanging, relax! I'm now a member of Women in Business and I love the group! There is still such a disparity between the amount of women and men in the business school and it is comforting to be surrounded by other motivated women going through the same thing. We've had retreats, social events, round table discussions with women in the consulting field, carved pumpkins with the recruiters from Dick's Sporting Goods, and had a Thanksgiving feast. Women in Business has been a blast.

Another exciting event I got to participate in was a Habitat for Humanity Build sponsored by Whirpool. I volunteered with some of my neighbors on my floor in the Kelley Living Learning Center and we had a very rewarding experience. We were building alongside many high ranking Whirlpool officers and their families, which was reassuring to me because I often fear that corporate America is cold and heartless (NOT TRUE OF WHIRLPOOL!).
My roommate and I began the year taking one picture every day. I am sorry to report that life got crazy and it became a hassle. I am proud to report that we lasted a month with our endeavor. Below is one of the last pictures we took which was before we went to a pre-recruitment event. Formal recruitment begins the Saturday after we come back from break. I cannot wait to see how everything unfolds for me.
