An MIT Alumni Association Publication

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an MIT student today? Alumni, friends, and families can get a sneak peek into what it’s like to live and learn at the Institute in 2021 through footage captured by George Bian ’24 (Computer Science and Engineering), Juliana Drozd ’22 (Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences), and Cami Mejia ’23 (Computer Science and Media Studies).

“I love being on campus at MIT,” says Mejia, who “missed it dearly” when access to campus was limited for the 2020–2021 academic year due to Covid-19. From staying up until 4:00 a.m. in the Student Center to “blowing things up in your labs,” the MIT experience is unique. Watch the full video.

In my day (1948-52), the course work was perhaps not much different but the surroundings: no comparison. The dormitories were strictly functional - no peripherals. Kendall Sq was just a subway stop with some factories and a diner. Only 4 women in my class. Computers were essentially unknown but everyone had a slide rule.
