The Full-Time and Part-Time Booth Partners clubs provide Boothies and their significant others the chance to connect with a close-knit community filled with individuals experiencing a similar life transition. All couples are welcome to join and embark together on the new adventures that come with living in Chicago during the MBA experience. As official Booth clubs, these groups aim to ensure partners feel welcomed and supported as soon as their Boothie is admitted to Chicago Booth. From sharing tips on finding adequate living arrangements, to exploring what the cool neighborhoods in Chicago have to offer, the goal of Booth Partners is to support one another, experience new things, and build genuine friendships along the way.
