CPW Day 3

Posted in: Miscellaneous

Today was dominated by the Meet The Bloggers Party - it was SO great to meet all of you!

But before we get to that, the rest of the day...

Got to MIT early, worked the help desk for a couple of hours. Headed over to the EC workshop (that's Educational Counselor, not East Campus) where I got to meet a bunch of cool MIT alums (some of whom actually read these blogs!). Back to the help desk for most of the afternoon.

At 5PM, I headed over to the closing ceremony which concluded with performances from 6 a cappella groups. In true MIT spirit it got hacked (see pic below). All of the groups were fantastic!

Next, Matt, Mitra, Kevin and I raided LaVerde's to buy supplies for the MTB party (see pic below). $60 of ice cream and root beer.

And most of you know what happened next - the bloggers blabbed away for awhile and everyone got to meet each other. Super fun. Almost all of the below pics were taken at the MTB party.

And finally, Matt and I stopped by the Battle Of The Bands before leaving for the night. On my way to the T, something *large* blew up near EC (that's East Campus, not Educational Counselor). Big orange glow, lots of smoke, smelled kindof bad. The perfect end to the perfect day.

Today's pics are below...

This has got nothing to do with CPW, but I wondered if CEE has released information regarding how many applied to RSI this year. Thanks.

I love the Logs like nothing else. (Especially the guy in the Lifesavers suit - come on! That was great!)

I'm with thekeri on that one. I'd say the a capella show was the PERFECT ending for CPW. It left me with the warmest feeling inside.

Will there be another concert for orientation week? Pretty PRETTY please? I want my parents to see it...

Neha -

There MUST be another a cappella show. Absolutely must be.

I'm thinking of trying out for one next year, actually.

YAYYYYY! CPW was amaaaazing, I just thought I'd let you know...

I had so much fun, and learned so much about MIT and what it's like there.... I went from 50-60% sure about going to MIT to 95% sure... smile

CPW was awesome. I went from being lukewarm about MIT to I MUST go there. NOW! There are so many things that make MIT soooo incredible.

100% sure I'll go to MIT if $ works out.

There is another a cappella sing during mid-October for parents' weekend that runs exactly like the CPW sing. You'll get to hear all 6 groups perform again.

If you're at all interested in auditioning (like thekeri), you definitely should. A cappella is awesome.

Feel free to email me [[email protected]] if you have any questions at all (about anything).
