Video: You Know You Went to MIT If . . .
The MIT Alumni Association asked some of its alumni to finish the phrase “You know you went to MIT if . . . ,” and their unique-to-MIT responses show that the Institute is a place unlike any other.
The responses, recorded at on-campus events during Tech Reunions weekend, include Institute-only acronyms like IAP, LSC, and IHTFP, and a well-known metaphor about the rigors of an MIT education.
“You know you went to MIT,” says Saf Yeboah-Amankwah ’93, MEng ’94, “if you know what drinking out of a firehose feels like.”
Many responses also mirrored the Institute’s mission to address great challenges facing society. “You know you went to MIT,” says Ashwini Gokhale ’13, “if you've met super passionate people who want to change the world.”
