Celebrate Your 30-Year Reunion in 2022

Rewind to 1992: At Booth, professor Gary Becker won a Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for extending microeconomic analysis to a wide range of human behavior. A breach in an underground utility tunnel in the Loop sent 250 million gallons of water from the Chicago River flooding into basements in the heart of downtown. And beloved Tonight Show host Johnny Carson said goodbye after 20 years in the late-night seat.

Hitting the Slopes Each Year 
Dan Hoskins, '92


I was an engineering student and really hadn’t had the opportunity to develop much business perspective. I knew that I wanted to advance my career in business, so when I was thinking about schools, I was looking for a place that I thought could help me build a critical understanding of businesses while giving me career choices that were attractive. I was very much attracted to the reputation of rigor that Chicago Booth had and the promise of its business frameworks. What I didn’t expect was how very meaningfully the school would deliver in terms of building personal relationships.


The Booth brand has opened many doors for me over the years, from management consulting to investing, but it’s also provided a very rich set of friendships. In the spring of 1991, two classmates and I hopped in a car and drove out to Colorado for what would become the first annual ski trip for our class. We’ve continued that tradition to this day, and it’s now grown to where we have 20 to 25 people on the trip every year. I’ve gone with classmates and their families on theme park trips, scuba diving adventures, hiking excursions, to the Olympics, the beach, on and on. The relationships that I made at Booth continue to be a rich part of my life.


I graduated with a very high appreciation for the school, and that’s only grown over time. Chicago Booth has been a very meaningful part of my life both professionally and personally. I’m excited for May to see some of the classmates I haven’t had the opportunity to see recently.

Bonding over Brats 'N Brews
Ed Ryder, '92


The primary interest I had in Chicgao Booth was its finance program. I was in investment banking and wanted to continue in this field, so I wanted a school that was very strong in finance and accounting.


One of the greatest professors I had was Merton Miller. He was very engaging. He won the Nobel Prize the first year I was there, in 1990, so he instantly became this rock star. Not only was he this world-renowned economist, but he was good at the chalkboard. On Thursdays, we’d have Brats ’n Brews, and he would bring along beers he really liked that my classmates and I had never heard of. He was a real beer connoisseur in the dawn of the microbrewery age, before it was popular. Most of us were used to simple beers like Coors, Miller, etc., but he turned a lot of people on to a beer that I continue to drink today, which is Pilsner Urquell.


My experience at Booth is a mile marker in my life. That experience was life changing because it broadened my horizons educationally and the friendships I made have been lifelong. I met some of the best people, many that I’ve stayed in close touch with. I like reconnecting with Booth. I think I’ve got some teacher-wannabe in me, too. I like connecting with younger people and giving them the two cents of my career path and how it can apply to theirs.
