Kellogg students certainly have no shortage of events on their social calendars. A series of student-run formal balls peppers the first-year calendar, starting with the CIM Ball (Complete Immersion in Management—the two-week orientation student complete just before the full-time curriculum begins) at the beginning of the academic year and continuing with the First- and Second-Year’s Social, the Fall Ball, the Charity Ball, and Casino Night (which is essentially another ball). When mbaMission interviewed students about their social calendar, many had trouble placing the names and themes of the balls, as they had been to all of them, and the different events had seemingly fused into a single memory. In short, once the school year begins, the average Kellogg student can expect to wear a tuxedo or ball gown more frequently than he/she might typically be accustomed to.
