Dang Right, We’re Cooler Than You by Chris S. '11

On the eve of Decision Day (D-Day), I bring you three things that adds to MIT's "street cred."

(1) So this past weekend was Spring Weekend (when MIT invites a singer to come to campus and give a concert), and guess who came! :D (no offense, but the spring weekend performers for the last few years have kind of sucked, other than Sara Bareilles :p)


(2) I’ll let Shaq speak for himself:

“You wanna go to Harvard? I wanna go to MIT. You wanna study chemistry? I wanna study biology.” So yeah, basically Shaq is jealous of my life.


(3) Recently, there was a College Confidential post that suggests that MIT is overrun by “socially awkward math geeks.” Just watch the video – it speaks for itself.

A big thank you to all the coordinators for the work you put into organizing this!!

(by the way, today was MIT 150 Open House, where a bunch of departments and student groups put on a big show to the surrounding community, MIT alumni, and just anyone who happens to drop by! Think of it as a CPW for adults =p – check out the festivities online!)
