About Some Activities (ASA) by Mitra L. '07

More tangents than a trig test (~11 pictures)

On Tuesday, a group of which I am a member had a large meeting in room 26-100

This is the same room in which I attended 8.01: Classical Mechanics (Physics) lecture with Sam ’07 freshman year, and in which I heard Nobel Laureate Frank Wilczek deliver his Nobel Colloqium

Also in this room, MIT Lecture Series Committee (LSC) shows movies every weekend for $3

Our group is the Association of Student Activities (ASA), and we “recognize, govern, and represent” MIT’s 375+ student groups. Here, Jen ’07 (Course 22: Nuclear Engineering) and James ’08 (Course 15: Management) organize some of the flyers we need to distribute to representatives of each of the groups

The next day, I walked through Lobby 10 and saw my freshman advisee, Sha-har ’09, selling baked goods to support the MIT Mock Trial team.

I bought some mochi. Yum.

My friend Evan ’07 (who was in my Orientation group (backwards cap)) was walking with me and said I was weird for taking a photo of Sha-har. He later found out that I actually did know her, and rescinded his statement.

In addition to Mock Trial, MIT also has Model United Nations and Parliamentary Debate groups

Another group with which I’m involved, the Association for Women Students (AWS), had a small meeting today for some mentor/mentee pairs. From left to right, we have Yahli ’07 (Course 15: Management and Course 18: Mathematics), Ashley ’09 (considering Course 16: Aeronautics and Astronautics and Course 21M: Music & Theater Arts), Joy ’07 (Course 18-C: Mathematics with Computer Science), me, our advisor Jane, Ji ’09 (considering Course 7: Biology), and Aisha ’09 (considering Course 10: Chemical Engineering)

We enjoyed the warm weather and got ice cream at Toscanini’s.

    Evan! Awww, Evan is my baby. He lived in my suite his freshman year, and he even took me to a Phi Delts formal.
