Doonesbury and MIT
Posted in: MIT Facts
I skipped 4 days of school to go to Seattle and Vancouver to learn about US and Canadian healthcare. (SEATTLE AND VANCOUVER RESIDENTS: did people ever tell you how pretty your cities are?!?!) I have about 200 pages of reading to catch up on. The last thing I should be doing is blogging, but hey, we're MIT students, right? :D
So you've probably heard of the comic strip Doonesbury. Basically, back in 2006, the author of the strip invited readers to decide which college the character Alex should attend. You can read about the history, which was chronicled by Matt, here, HeRe, and HERE!. Of course, pollhacking is not new, as demonstrated by the Victoria's Secret hack that happened my sophomore fall.
Okay so all of this was the backstory of how Alex decided to go to MIT. Here's some of the things that happened after she got here. (also - she's "graduating" this year!)
