I have truly found paradise or I hate this fracking place. Both are true all the time. This is the most stressful, most fun, and most challenging experience I have ever had, and I love it.

An awesome place full of students and professors who are excited to learn and teach each other, who collaborate every day on projects that advance knowledge on topics ranging from aerospace technology to brain and cognitive sciences. Not only do you receive one of the best educations available, you are part of an amazingly talented and enthusiastic group of people who live and learn together as a community. There are opportunities for everything here at MIT, including athletics, study abroad, theater and arts, and numerous research and internship opportunities all over the world.
