It's all fun and games until you have to learn economics! Blondie Goes to Leisureland was created in 1940, to be given to kids when their parents purchased appliances from Westinghouse. The game taught economic principles through the purchasing of appliances and is now part of the Baker Library historical collection. Baker is the largest business library in the world with more than 600,000 volumes, and a few board games.

" I was Ankita’s junior in undergrad and couldn’t help falling in love with her. Excited, I asked her to marry me but she pushed back citing two reasons – 1) I was legally below the minimum age to marry and 2) We hadn’t been dating! But I persisted and eventually we began a beautiful relationship. Fast forward to today, we got married in January after knowing each other for over 10 years and being madly in love for 7. Our love has transcended oceans and continents through several years of long-distance, but to love and be loved is truly a magical feeling. I feel like the luckiest man in the world and am at a loss for words to express my gratitude for having a partner who I am excited to spend the rest of my life with. I respect you, adore you and love you, Ankita!" —Utsav Mitra (MBA 2017) and Ankita Agrawal During this Valentine’s week, the LGBT Student Association invites you to celebrate #LoveAtHBS and meet some of the couples who have shared with us their beautiful and inspiring stories.

"In 2009, our mutual friend, 'Emily' Harmony, decided it was time for Ben and I to connect. While it took me like 6 months to respond, Ben held no grudges (really patient guy). We did the whole back and forth multiple choice questions thing that afternoon until I could finally type in my phone number (gosh that eHarmony site was intense!). He immediately called, 'to hear my voice,' and we met the next day for coffee and dessert. Neither of us knew what to expect and had other plans for that night, but we ended up cancelling them – and the rest is history! We moved- in together 4 months later, were engaged the following year (he proposed on his birthday!), married the next (he sang his vows!), and had our son the year after that (literally in the hospital on our 1 year anniversary). We’re partners and best friends and really blessed to have found each other." —LaToya Marc (MBA 2017) and Ben Marc During this Valentine’s week, the LGBT Student Association invites you to celebrate #LoveAtHBS and meet some of the couples who have shared with us their beautiful and inspiring stories.

"The best thing about being together is that over all these years (almost 4), we have built our life’s project as one! I have been blessed with an amazing partner, Mercedes, who supports and encourages me in every crazy thing I do. From moving to this cold city of Boston for two years, to creating a home for our two pups, Claudio and Fluffy, to adventures in New York over the summer, and finally to our decision to move back to Mexico – we are the best team I can think of. She is truly my better half and makes me be a more complete and wholesome person. We are different in a lot of ways, but it is those differences that undoubtedly make our relationship stronger and more beautiful. I have to say, there is nothing better than sharing this wild and precious life with a such a bright and loving 'soon–to–be' wife." —Alejandra Rios (MBA 2017) & Mercedes Saenz During Valentine’s week, the LGBT Student Association invites you to celebrate #LoveAtHBS and meet some of the couples who have shared their beautiful and inspiring stories.

"We like to joke that we found love in a hopeless place: at a conference for aspiring bankers and consultants in NYC. I was a junior at Harvard and Ruben a sophomore at Cornell. It was love at first sight, complicated by the fact that we were college students living hundreds of miles apart. In a twist of serendipity, Ruben had planned a family vacation to Boston the following weekend, so we agreed to meet again then. That next weekend, I met his entire family (talk about moving fast), and he asked me to be his boyfriend. Long distance was challenging, but we made it work; Ruben even started a carpool business, shuttling other romantics between Ithaca and Boston in his ’97 Nissan Altima. We said 'I love you' four months later, moved to NYC together a couple of years later, and got engaged and started HBS together five years later. Every day, each of us is grateful to share our one wild and precious life with the other." —Ruben Ortega (MBA 2018) and Bobby McWatters (MBA 2018) During this Valentine’s week, the LGBT Student Association invites you to celebrate #LoveAtHBS and meet some of the couples who have shared with us their beautiful and inspiring stories.
