Yesterday’s classes featured two prominent Rice alumni. In Entrepreneurship we covered John Doerr (class of ’73 and ’74), one of the world’s most influential venture capitalists. Later, in an etiquette class, we saw pictures of Jim Turley (class of ’77 and ’78), the Global Chairman and CEO of Ernst & Young, who apparently knows how to dress appropriately for business events. Incidentally, both of these accomplished gentlemen were at Lovett–RRF! As a Lovetteer myself (’01 and ’02), I hope one day to join them in the pantheon of distguished Rice alumni.
In the meantime I just finished playing ping pong in the snow during our lunch break. It is the 8th of April. Toto, we’re not in Houston anymore.
