    Reading the clean half of your entry, I was like, “Oh, I’m so jealous, when is SWE (Society for Women Engineers) going to do another one of those AWESOME faculty dinners like the one last term where I got to sit across from Professor Virk, a 55-year-old Indian fluid mechanics Professor, and hear his thoughts on ‘Hot in Here” by Nelly.” Then I found out that there is in fact one TOMORROW, but I have choir rehearsal the whole time. ARGH! Curse you, SWE!! No, wait…. Curse you, choir!!

    Mitra – I love your inclusion of the Double Dare Sex Challenge because come on, students don’t hear about this side of MIT every day. It’s also one of the most innovative ways to incourage sexual safety that I’ve ever heard of. Who came up with the idea? I like it.

    Hey Kateri,

    Thanks for your comment. I’m glad that you think this has been helpful. I am guessing that Janet ’06 and Neera ’06 came up with the idea, and I’m sure that Laura and the rest of the staff from MIT Medical helped them plan the categories and questions.
