Hi! I’m Katie Kelley, one of the Admissions Counselors here at MIT, and with my second season of reading applications behind me, its time to start getting to know all of the wonderful people I have been able to read about over the past several months!
Kris was kind enough to let me guest post on her blog to let you know about some exciting opportunities for admitted students. Although a lot of my time is spent preparing for Campus Preview Weekend (sign up now!), I’ve been working with our fantastic Alumni to put together admitted student gatherings to welcome you. Beginning Saturday, MIT alumni from around the world will host parties in their hometowns for students admitted to the Class of 2016. If there’s one in your area, you should check it out — it’s a great opportunity to meet some potential future classmates, as well as MIT students and alumni. You’re parents are also welcome and encouraged to attend.
Here are a few highlighted events this coming week; see your MyMIT account for the locations and times of these events, and for a list of all of the events.
Stop by Fairfield, CT, the headquarters of engineering giant GE and spend a bit of the afternoon in the home of a wonderful MIT Alum.
