CPW, via Video by Matt McGann '00
Experience (or relive) Campus Preview Weekend through online videos.
For those of you who couldn’t make it to campus for CPW, here is a video recap of much that occurred! I hope this is helpful =)
And for those of you who attended CPW — it was great to meet you!
The Festival occurred Thursday night, after the Student Welcome. Dozens of student groups offered activities ranging from 2×4 Jenga to big screen DDR to a liquid nitrogen ice cream extravaganza. It was really fun!
(with special panelist Melis ’08!)
The Next House dormitory hosted some of the members of the famed MIT Blackjack Team on Saturday night, including a panel (first video, discussing their “scariest moment” while on the team) and a member who gave a card counting tutorial (second video).
On the third day of CPW, Bryan ’07 interviewed some students about their experiences so far.
The Closing kicked off with this a capella performance from the Logarhythms.
The Chorallaries performed…
For my money, Jacob’s juggling act was the highlight of the closing… sadly, we don’t have video of it, but here’s another video with Jacob’s act, at the Festival Mondial du Cirque De Demain (“The Worldwide Festival of the Circus of Tomorrow”) in Paris. Surprise fact: as in this video, Jacob was originally scheduled to perform with his equally talented and brilliant brother Nate ’09, but Nate had a track meet. The Shapre Brothers are quite a duo…
I hope that gives you a flavor of the CPW that was…
