Student life at MIT

No day at MIT could really be described as typical. You would likely get 4,500 unique answers from each of our undergrads as to what a “day in the life of an MIT student” looks like for them—and that’s part of what makes life at MIT so vibrant.

The humans of MIT move freely from lectures to labs, from dance floors to darkrooms, from study breaks to startup meetings, from dining halls to family dinners. We could (and often do) speak at length about our students, but why not get to know them yourself?
