The Official Kick-off to "The Booth Experience"

Hello out there!

Today is an exciting day for DSAC (Dean’s Student Admissions Committee). We are officially launching our integrated social media campaign for “The Booth Experience” – the first ever student-led admissions initiative aimed at sharing the energy, diversity, and authenticity of the Booth student experience with the online community.

You can tune into “The Booth Experience” in a few ways:

“The Booth Experience” is on Facebook. Come “like” us then check back often to keep up with the busy Booth student body!

On our Facebook page you will find:

A live feed from our YouTube channel with weekly videos we call “Wednesdays in the Winter Garden”. Each Wednesday, we will add a new video to our “Wednesdays in the Winter Garden” series (WIWG for short). The Winter Garden is the hub of student activity on campus, and each week we’ll go to the Winter Garden to catch up with Booth students – we’ll find out the latest on what’s happening in our community, and also ask questions that have been posed by prospective students.

We’ve already addressed questions like “What’s Impressed you about Booth?” and “How did you discover Booth?” For this week’s WIWG videos, we did something a little different. We took our camera to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin where we spoke to first-year students about their experience during Orientation and at the Leadership Orientation Retreat (LOR). If you have a question that you’d like Booth students to answer in this video series, let us know! Submit your questions through this blog or our Facebook page.

Photo albums with pictures from the latest on-campus and off-campus events – check in to join a virtual LPF (Liquidity Preference Function) – Booth’s weekly Friday happy hour in the Winter Garden, or view pictures of Booth’s adventurous students trekking around the world together on “Random Walks”.

An interactive discussion forum where you can post questions for current students – come join the discussion or post your own questions which will be answered by a DSAC member

A live feed of this student blog – as if you could get enough of us! Or, you can continue to follow the Booth Experience blog right here. We will use this blog to post regularly about topics of interest to prospective students. The blog will include both the 1st year and 2nd year perspective on topics such as extracurriculars, academics, recruiting, and the unique art all over the Harper Center! If you have anything you’d like to learn about – please let us know by commenting or sending us an email.

We look forward to sharing our “Booth Experience” with all of you in the coming months. We’re always interested to hear what’s on your mind – feel free to send us any questions/comments/feedback to

Until next time,
