Faculty Luncheon for Local* Admitted Students by mitblogs
*local: from New England or New York, or anyone who just happens to be in the area.
Hello, everyone. This is probably the first time anyone has heard of me (maybe that’s a good thing?), but I come to you today with important news!
Our faculty, an amazing group of folks, asked how they could help us in addition to the many activities they’re planning for Campus Preview Weekend in April. We brainstormed, made charts and graphs, and after drawing some Venn diagrams, finally came up with the brand-spanking-new Faculty/Admitted Student Luncheon. This is going to be an awesome, low-key, informal event, where you can sit down for a delicious lunch and chat with our Professors about cutting-edge research, cool discoveries, and all of the fantastic things you can do as an MIT student.
(NB: Since this thing is about 2.5 hours in length, and not quite as life-changing as the 4-day Campus Preview Weekend Extravaganza in April, only admitted students in New England and New York got the invite. But if you just happen to be in Boston that weekend, and want to stop by, we’d love to host you!)
When is this Luncheon, you say?
Saturday, February 9th, from 11:30 am to 2 pm.
And where is this Luncheon?
The beautiful MIT Faculty Club.
Just who’s going to be there?
You, your parents, our Faculty, and lots of our undergrads who do original research here on campus and in the world beyond.
And most, importantly, what food will be served?
Tasty, fresh food!
Here’s the menu:
Tender Mixed Greens with Dried Cherries, Warm Goat Cheese Crostini, and Honey Tarragon Dressing
Basil and Hazelnut Crusted Breast of Chicken with Zinfandel Sauce
Grilled North Atlantic Salmon Fillet with Tomato, Cucumber and Dill Relish (This one looks especially delicious.)
White Cornmeal Polenta Timbale with Roasted Baby Vegetables and Tomato Coulis
Linzer Torte with Fresh Raspberries and Vanilla Sauce
We’d love to meet you and your family in February if you’ll be in the area, so please RSVP by emailing me at [email protected] Include your entrée preferences, and I’ll get back to you with directions and parking information.
Email me with any questions, yo.
Assistant Director of Admissions
