Beyond the MBA Classroom: Scavenger Hunt at Tuck

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

The scavenger hunt at the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration at Dartmouth College happens at the very beginning of the year and is organized by second-year students for the incoming first-year students. However, very little “hunting” actually takes place. The students enjoy carnival games and tricycle rides, three-legged races and bobbing for apples. Students form teams, and each team dresses in costume according to a theme of its choosing. A recent graduate described her team experience to mbaMission by saying, “One team wore colors of the rainbow. Another group dressed as characters from the movie Zoolander.”
