With Campus Preview Weekend just a few weeks away (sign up here if you haven’t done so already), early spring is an exciting time for the MIT community. Newly admitted students have received their acceptance letters, current students are getting ready for spring break, and admissions officers are celebrating the end of application season. Also, this year it looks like the lingering winter weather has finally left us…but don’t quote me on that.
For all the newly admitted students out there, we hope you are pumped for what the next few months have in store. It all really begins next week. We’ve been working with our incredible team of Educational Counselors and other great alumni to put together admitted student gatherings to help welcome you to MIT. Starting this Saturday (March 19), MIT alumni from around the world will host get-togethers in their hometowns for students admitted to the class of 2020. These gatherings offer fantastic opportunities to meet some of your potential future classmates, as well as connect with MIT students and alumni. Click here to see if there is a party near you!
