Freshman Advisors Can Be Awesome by Anthony R. '09

A night on the town with Daniel Barkowitz and his freshman advisees.

I’ve been working with Daniel on advising a group of freshmen this year, and in exchange, I get to tag along on group outings. On Friday, ten of us went for dinner, dessert, and an off-Broadway show in downtown Boston.

P.F. Chang’s was packed, but we zipped to the front of the line with a large table awaiting us. It was a great opportunity to catch up on how everyone’s doing with class, friends, and their new lives away from home. We have a varied group with one hailing from Alaska and another from Panama.

The Altar Boyz played at the Colonial Theatre to a very receptive audience, including another group from MIT. We had a great time in the first row of the mezzanine. Afterward, it was time for some fine desserts at Finale near the Park Plaza Hotel — the Boston Cream was a favorite. From left, that’s David, Peter, RJ, Kim, and Kelly.

And it was all paid for! Even the subway fare.

    How often would you say that MIT students eat out? How often do you cook food in your dorm?
