Campus Preview Weekend – Part 1

MIT’s welcome weekend is insane. With 666 events spread out over three and a half days, there’s no way you can get to even a quarter of them. Because my phone had a serious battery issue, I wasn’t able to get everything on camera, but I have enough to give you a glimpse of what it was like.

Me and fellow EA admit Daniel Gonzalez meeting up just after orientation
room 2
The frat I stayed in for CPW (Theta Xi) was pretty nice, and my host (Josh) was extra nice. 😀 The only downside was that it was across the river, which made getting to campus a pain.


kresge cooking
It was pouring on the first day. Didn’t stop some people from grilling burgers, though.

Me and Daniel used the tunnels a lot on the first day to get around.

I think our Caltech refugees + Daniel group went to the Simmons ball pit, like, five times during CPW.

The opening ceremony was packed and featured a lot of cool things, like Ceri ’16, Stu, and the Logarhythms (one of MIT’s acapella groups).
