    Whatever your interest, there’s a way to get involved at MIT Sloan. Our students are leaders, thinkers, and doers and use the MIT campus – indeed, the world – as their playground for experimentation. With the abundance of activities at MIT Sloan, you’re sure to find what interests you.

    Student Clubs

    The over 70 MIT Sloan clubs represent MIT culture, showcasing a diverse array of interests and offering the opportunity to imagine, develop, and execute events ranging from mixers to conferences to trips abroad. Many clubs welcome students from the entire MIT community. There is even a club for spouses, partners, and significant others at MIT Sloan.

    Student-run clubs play a pivotal role in student life and culture of MIT Sloan. Club members organize conferences, such as the Venture Capital and Innovation Conference and the Sports Analytics Conference, two of the largest conferences in the United States managed by students. The MIT Sloan Women in Management Conference has attracted such speakers as Jan Fields, former president of McDonald’s and MIT Sloan alumna Robin Chase, founder of ZipCar.

    Athletics

    MIT boasts one of the largest and most diverse club sports programs anywhere, with one of the highest participation rates. Whether you prefer basketball or ballroom dancing, Aikido or ultimate Frisbee, there's a team for you. Because we're just steps from the banks of the Charles River, many students also take advantage of opportunities to sail, canoe, row, or run along the famous waterway.

    Through MIT's state-of-the-art Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center (the Z-Center), MIT Sloan students have access to an array of athletic facilities, including cardio machines, free weights, squash courts, floor hockey, basketball, aerobics, volleyball, and an Olympic-size pool.

    MIT Sloan Student Senate

    A powerful force for positive change and community building, the MIT Sloan Student Senate is the school's official student government and provides critical representation and advocacy for the student experience. Every MIT Sloan student is a potential senator, and we encourage you to participate even if you are not interested in the responsibility of directly holding office.

    By charter, the Senate advocates for the general welfare of students at MIT Sloan, working in partnership with the student body, the School’s program management, faculty, and alumni, as well as with students in affiliated programs and MIT's Graduate Student Council (GSC).

    Senate Committees

    The Senate is divided into formal subcommittees that address various issues around the school, such as academics, admissions, alumni relations, clubs, OneMIT, and the Sloan experience. Several informal subcommittees usually form each year around particular student interests, and have included topics such as professional standards and career development.

    Club Leadership

    Behind every student club is a leadership committee, often selected or nominated by student peers. These student leaders organize speaking events, professional development, and conferences. Club leadership is a dynamic opportunity to sharpen leadership and management skills. A list of student clubs is available here.
