Can anyone join the Experimental Study Group (ESG)?

Experimental Study Group (ESG) offers instruction in the core first year subjects of biology, chemistry, math, and physics through small, discussion-based classes designed for students who are interested in taking an active role in their education. Instruction takes place in a 14-room suite on the top floor of one of the central buildings on campus. Nine MIT staff and faculty members and 25 upper-class TA’s serve as the program’s instructors. Academics are supplemented by a variety of community activities, including weekly luncheons, evening study sessions, and weekend trips.
