Join us for an evening with Professor Nicholas Epley and hear about Designing a Good Life.  Most people want to live a “good” life in at least three senses of the term:  to do well, to be ethical, and to feel good.  Professor Epley will explain how behavioral science research suggests these goals might be closer aligned than you might think.  He will provide insight on how to design your life to better achieve these goals.

 

The meeting will also feature an update on Chicago Booth from our new Dean, Madhav Rajan. There will also be appetizers catered by Wolfgang Puck, a cash bar, and the chance to re-energize your connections with classmates, friends, and fellow alums.

 

Registration Fee: $35 covers food and two drink tickets.
