Class of 2005

2004 was a record-breaking year. A US athlete set a world record and started his journey to become the most decorated Olympian in history. A new Chicago park opens. The—at the time—world's tallest skyscraper is opened and a New York sculpture is reopened to the public. A social network is launched at Harvard that will forever shape our online experience. And, the Class of 2004 went out to shape the world with new Booth degrees in hand!

Empowering Environment
Kristin (Murphy) Kohn
, ’04

Booth, for me, has become a family affair. While deciding where to apply to business school, I experienced Booth first-hand while visiting my now sister-in-law, who was a first-year student, with my now husband during fall preview weekend. The combination of thought leadership and decision-making grounded in analysis was what sold an MBA at Booth to us.

Most people who go to Booth will say you'll never be in an environment again where everybody in the room with you is incredibly talented, well educated, and full of different ideas. I think we were the first class with over 30% women, and while still being in the minority, made us a tight-knit group. Having a group of women experiencing the same balancing act with careers and families now has been really helpful.

I think it’s really hard not to be really involved on campus while at Booth. There are so many opportunities and clubs. One of my favorite organizations was Giving Something Back. We organized volunteer opportunities for students and held an annual charity auction which was really popular across the business school. Professors donated auction items that included experiences with them which the students loved. These out-of-classroom experiences worked to build a strong community within the school.

I enjoy Reconnect because it’s easy to rekindle relationships that may have just gotten away from us over the years. We can really pick up right where we left off, and I love learning about where classmates have gone and what they're up to now.

Kristin (Murphy) Kohn is the franchise owner of Club Pilates Westmont and Club Pilates Oak Park in Hindsdale, Illinois. She also serves as co-chair of the Class of ’04 reunion committee.
