Who knew you all could move like that?

Wow! We have a pretty talented bunch here at Kellogg. Congrats to everyone who participated in Bollywood Bash! Though Professor Dale as both an angel and a devil may have taken the cake (or the Kellogg kids strutting their cute stuff), you all conquered the dance floor with grace and finesse. 

We have a special edition coming at you tomorrow (but for now we'll keep the surprise alive). So, instead let's get a head start on your prep for Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Are you wondering how you too, can make a day of it in Chicago Ferris-style? We'll give you the locations of some of Ferris' favorite haunts.

Heavenston is a place in spring

Feeling like you finally understand this Heavenston nickname now that the sun is out? Enjoy today's warm spring temperatures -- today's high will reach 71°F (22°C)! 

X Marks the Spot

  • A meta moment: Macro applications of a macro. Wondering how operations research is used to impact policy areas from education to smart cities? Hear from Gar Goei Loke, Lead Analyst in the Prime Minister's Office in Singapore, about data-driven policy decisions in Singapore (12:15 p.m., 2110). Link here.
  • Getting personal insights. Hear the story of your favorite Personal Leadership Insights Professor, Brenda Booth Ellington, as a part of the WBA's "My Story" series (12:15 p.m, 2430A). Link here.
  • Build Your Own Hotel Empire. Hear from Jeanee and Brian Linden of Linden Hotels about how they built a boutique hotel chain in less than three years by working carefully with the government and using word of mouth marketing (5:15 p.m., 2420A&B). Link here.
  • Marc Anthony & Cleopatra, Barack & Michelle Obama, Prince Harry & Meghan Markle... What do these two have in common? They are power couples, of course! Hear from Kellogg's own power couples about navigating family dynamics, careers and building a fulfilling life in this open Q&A (5:15 p.m., 1420). Link here.


It's true that every day in business school feels like a day off, but to get in the spirit for Wednesday's Cubs game, we're willing to up the ante and consider doing Chicago right with recommendations from true North Shore royalty: Ferris Bueller.

Just like us, Ferris makes the Lakeshore Drive trek to Chicago. But before getting started, he made two critical stops right in our backyard -- Cameron's house, which for those who are curious is located at 370 Beech Street in Highland Park, and Glenbrook North High School, which is also just a hop, skip and a jump away from Evanston.

He then hits the road and sees views for days at Willis Tower (still commonly referred to as the Sears Tower). In case you want to feel queasy at the skydeck, it's open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Ferris also considers iconic art at  The Chicago Art Institute. Don't miss one of his favorites -- A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by George Seurat -- or the student discount with your Kellogg ID!

Ferris et al then dine at fictional restaurant Chez Quis with Ferris posing as 'Abe Froman, Sausage King of Chicago' before making their way to our final destination Wrigley Field, where even though he just ate, he consumes a delicious ball park frank.

It wouldn't be a true end to the day without one final stop at Glencoe Beach. The beach just north of the Baha'i Temple offers some stunning views of Lake Michigan and a chance to take in your big day in the windy city, and any damage you've somehow incurred along the way...
