Captains of Industry selling a Battle of The Bands ticket to DSB. Don't forget to get yours!

Another one bites the dust

T minus 4 weeks until the end of the quarter. Our survey results are in, and you'll never guess which professor we most want at our end of year parties--let's just say we don't anticipate friendly cocktail banter. Read on for the results!

In the meantime, we hope you all have enjoyed the fantastic programming for Africa Business Week. Here is a final Nigerian proverb to consider as we close out the week: 

No matter how hot your anger is, it cannot cook yam.

Not so hot in herre

While there's no need to take your clothes off, you might want to bring a change with you to dry off. Today's high is 49°F (9°C) with rainy skies. The weekend looks grim, with rain and clouds in the 50s.

Friday Fixin's

  • Never go out of style. Do you often feel like Versace on the dance floor? Consider attending the clothing design workshop with Jim Snediker, Founder & CEO of Stock Mfg., hosted by KIEI. During the hour, you'll learn about the ins and outs of clothing design and entrepreneurship, including hands-on experience with fabrics and the design process. As a bonus, students will design a shirt and have the ability to purchase it at a price heavily discounted below cost (12:15 p.m., 1427; waitlist only).
  • International love. Join The Africa Business Club along with two amazing panelists for Shaping the Future of Business in Africa, a discussion about entrepreneurship and venture capital in Africa and for African consumers. Fun fact: fundraising by African startups has grown 8.7x over the past 4 years! (12:15 p.m., L110).

Survey says

The results are in and let's just say we're more than amused and proud to have you eclectic group as our classmates. In case you've already forgotten what happened on Tuesday, Daybreak was curious: what are the less academic attributes you will remember about your professors here at Kellogg? Here are the results:

The professor you'd most like to party with, Craig Garthwaite.

Professor you'd most want to party with: Craig Garthwaite 
But why? Perhaps getting cold called will be more fun while a few drinks deep. 

Professor you secretly want to be your parent: James Naughton
Your credits and debits will always be in check, and he'll definitely hold you accountable.

Professor to most likely pass as a student: Daniel Martin

Follow the blue arrow in case you can't spot him.

Best dressed professor: Loran Nordgren 
His Jedi mind tricks must be working.
Professor with a celebrity doppelgänger: Schonthal and "any hipster movie character ever"
Honorable mention to Bassamboo and John Mayer.

Professor most likely to be moonlighting as a stand-up comedian: Tim Calkins
Perhaps then we would all find world peace.

Professor to most likely crush an Iron Man competition: Dean Merrick or Charles Nathanson
It was a ten-way tie but we narrowed it down to two.

Survival of the fittest.

You [don't] gotta go to work, work, work, work, work, work, work

Think back to your last day of work. You were eight hours away to two years of "freedom". That time is nearing an end for many of us and we here at Daybreak want to ease you back into the real world with some workplace readiness tips.

  • Prepare a personal onboarding plan. Professor William White is a huge proponent of onboarding plans that help you mentally (and physically) prepare for everything from the first meeting with your boss to reassessing you wardrobe. Here is a set of templates that he created to get you ahead of the curve.
  • Get into routine early. Research suggests that it takes 21 days to form a habit. Prepare for your first day by getting into the routine of going to sleep early, waking up in time for your morning commute, and adapting to a work-appropriate lifestyle.
  • Fake it 'til you make it. While you may now have an MBA, this adage has never been more important. Now, people will actually expect us to know something about many things. For those of you who actually do, kudos! For the rest of us, just remember -- confidence is key.

We got this!
