Hey everyone! Some people have asked if I’m still blogging (mostly my mom). Yes, I am, but I’ve just been very busy/lazy/boring. The only major news on my end since the last time we caught up is that I got my EMT training and have started working on the MIT-EMS ambulance.
On your end: CPW!
Hopefully you’ll be able to join us for Campus Preview Weekend. When I was a prefrosh, I couldn’t make it to CPW, but I visited on my own about a month later. Either way, I urge everyone, admitted or otherwise, to try to visit as many of your options as possible. Campus visits really helped me narrow my decision down to two schools, and there is no better way to get a “feel” for a college.
I’m really excited to see you guys, the next generation of MIT students. CPW will be all kinds of fun. Click here to browse through all 660+ events. I recommend getting an idea now of what all you want to do when you get here. With so many events to choose from, it would be good to have at least a rough outline of what you’d like to see. Here are my picks:
-Student Activities Fair: Saturday, 1-3pm, Johnson. This is, in my opinion, one of the most valuable events of CPW. There will be hundreds of booths and thousands of strangers handing out free swag and begging for your email address. You can get a sense of what types of activities you can, and will, get involved with. There will be another event like this during Orientation week, but the CPW fair is a good way to interact with organizations before you have to make your matriculation decision.
–WMBR Open House: Saturday, 3pm, Walker Memorial Building. See behind the scenes of MIT’s student radio station and its enormous record library. Ever wanted to see what a “vinyl record” is like? Find out how to get your own radio show? Here’s your chance! You’ll also be able to pick a song to introduce and play live on the air. I think that is pretty darn cool.
Finally, if you have any questions about your visit to MIT, or your college choices in general, feel free shoot me an email me at the address in the banner.
