The people you live with, the people you travel with, the people you eat with, the people you experience new things with," that's what defines MIT, says Daniel "Gonzo" Gonzalez Cunningham '20, one of the winners of the #ThisisMIT video contest. For the contest, students shared short videos focusing on what they loved to do outside of the lab and classroom. Watch the videos and see what makes MIT such a special place for so many.

Research @ MIT: SuperUROP!
"The music is as unique as a game play," said Patrick Egbuchulam, an EECS senior. Patrick is spending his SuperUROP working to enhance video game play by making the music responsive to what a player is experiencing. What's a Super UROP? It's a year-long research project through the Advanced Undergraduate Research Program. Students learn the essentials of research, from designing experiments to writing research papers and presenting at conferences. This year, for the first time, the program was open to students from the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, as well as the School of Engineering.
