Like Burger King – Only Not (Guest Entry) by Paul B. '11
That ain't no Etch-a-Sketch. This is one doodle that can't be un-did, homeskillet.
You know that feeling when you wake up right before your alarm goes off, or you put on that favorite sweatshirt you’ve had since forever, or you get home after a long trip and just put down your bags and sigh because it feels so good to be home?
Yeah. That’s kind of what going back to MIT feels like.
So I visited back in February, had probably the second best time of my life (getting accepted and learning Calculus are tied for first – I’m quite serious), and knew absolutely for sure hands down no doubts that this was the place for me. If you want to get technical about it, CPW served no other purpose for me other than meeting new people and eating free food. Both of which I was fine with.

You only get one genuinely pre-froshy CPW, so take advantage of it – if you’re walking around in Baker and run into a bunch of current students who want to talk to you, stop and talk. You might just be there for an hour. Or if you don’t think you’re the Greek type, go to a frat party anyway. You might just have an awesome night.
Your CPW is going to be as completely unique as you, so make the most of it. I mean, this was just my CPW. Have it your way.
