Picture MIT—on the MIT Student Life Flickr Site
Want a glimpse of campus life at MIT? The MIT Student Life office has posted collections of images on Flickr that show students at work and at play. Topics range from residence and Greek life to athletics, from the Hobby Shop to the famous freshman swim test. Here are a few highlights to get you started:
To graduate, MIT students must pass a 100-yard swim test or take an introductory swim class. Incoming freshmen are invited to fulfill this requirement at the Zesiger Center during Orientation when they arrive on campus. Here, students take an additional Boat Test, treading water for 10-minutes to be eligible to use the sailboat or crew shells at the MIT Sailing Pavilion. Photo by Thomas Gearty.

The Hobby Shop provides a place for any MIT student to work with well maintained machines and tools and to receive instruction and building advice. Projects can be academic or personal, serious or just for fun. Photo: MIT Hobby Shop.
