  • So many visitors to the area are looking to visit Harvard. Just a half hour by foot or 5 minutes by metro from Harvard is MIT. The architecture is modern, funky and a bit on the alternative side. The Office of Admissions provides a free tour at 10am and 2pm, Monday through Friday. You need to register online. Alternatively, you can tour the campus on your own. There are free maps and self-guided tour information located outside the MIT Information Center located at 77 Massachusetts Ave. They also have an app you can download on iOS and Android. Search for "MIT Mobile" in your App Store. Free wifi is available around the university. Also...all the buildings, including the library at MIT are open to the public.
  • Consistently ranked the best university (5 consecutive years!). The perfect role model of how an ideal university should behave. No doubt we are progressing towards a better world and MIT indeed has a huge role in it.
  • One of the best educational institutions of the world...I have been cherishing a dream of being a student of there for a long time....I know its very tough for the international students to get chance there...for this I've to work hard....I'm now at 11th in Notre Dame College,Bangladesh.....Inshallah I'll try my level best to get myself admitted into MIT....Love u MIT....
  • I'm looking for some MIT jokes since I am trying to write an animation screenplay. I am also interested in tutoring for ESL or for acting or public speaking. I think this school should compare itself to the rival on the west cost just for fun. NEvermind. I am only writing this review for points. I don't want a goon squad to attack me for my viewpoints. I like the weird al song. I will tune into weird al song now.
