MIT goes APE.

Posted in: Life & Culture

Hello all!

I’m just popping in to show you guys a video from an exciting event at MIT last weekend. The Chinese Students Club (CSC) hosted their annual Chinese New Year Banquet. There were plenty food, skits, performances, and festive spirits – but the highlight came at the end. You see, this year, CSC (whose exec board includes our own Celena) brought Far East Movement (FM) to MIT’s Walker Memorial – you know, the same place I took both of my calculus finals. But on February 21st, the building was raging for very different reasons.

See for yourself.


Sorry for making y’all dizzy. :P A tidbit of info on this electrobop/hip-hop/rap group: FM’s songs have been featured in “So You Think You can Dance”, “America’s Best Dance Crew”, “Entourage”, “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift” and more; they also recently toured with LMFAO. FM ended the performance @ MIT with their new song, “Go Ape.”

On a similar note, the Student Activities Office is bringing hip-hop/funk group N.E.R.D to campus for Spring Weekend. Last year, I waited four hours in the rain to see N.E.R.D. I would absolutely love an encore – but this time, under the protection of Johnson Athletic Center --

I've been reading the blogs most of my senior year and this is the first time i get to post in the top(earliest) five comments.

Every year updates from the admissions office are blogged in Matt or Ben by 25 Feb. This year there have been no updates.

Seriously people, nobody cares if you're first, it's not an achievement, and quite frankly it's pretty stupid.

What happens if I get selected and my application gets forwarded to the finaid office but my finaid materials haven't reached the office? Will they send me the acceptance letter without an aid offer but an info request form so they can get the financial information?

You will receive an acceptance folder via postal mail if you're accepted, but it will not include your financial aid package.

@ Divyansh - Sorry I'm not sure when decisions will be released. Keep checking the blogs - I'd expect an update soon.

@ Anonymous up there - the video works for me; try this direct link:

admissions needs to either post some sort of update on when decisions will be released, or take responsibility for the explosion of my head.

@last anonymous:
I agree. I feel the same.
