CPW Day 2

Posted in: Miscellaneous

Another insane (in a good way) day! Got to MIT early; checked in with my fellow admissions peeps. Not bound to the Reg Desk today, I made the most of my time attending events and meeting prefrosh.

Started with the Student Life & Learning Panel & followup sessions. Had lunch with Mootmom. Went back to my office for the first time in 2 days; checked email.

Akash & Erin stopped by and we stalked people using the satellite feature of Google Maps for an hour or so. Met up with Lorelle and headed to the BSU Lounge in Walker; met some awesome people. Went to Senior Haus just in time to see 6000 bouncy balls thrown off the roof. Had some fun with said balls.

Back to the BSU Lounge to hear AMAZING live jazz and eat Redbones for dinner. From there I headed to the Mr/Miss MIT pageant in time to see the winners crowned. At last Lorelle and I packed up the computers in La Sala and headed back to 3-107.

Note to Caltech students: the note you left in our office, informing us of this, has made its way to, um, the right people. Not that I know anything about this. What? What note? What are you talking about?

P.S. Can I just tell you all how much the prefrosh ROCK?

Today's pics are below...

Me & Lorelle.

The Academic Fair - got there at the very end so it wasn't very crowded.

Mitra & some new friends, including the infamous Nghi.

Musicians and a tap dancer perform at the Arts Fair.

International students orientation begins on August 21, but students are asked to arrive a few days earlier. There's a short orientation specifically for international students, then there is the entire orientation for all of the incoming students.

Hope this helps.
