• Student Life

    It's been said that getting an education from MIT is like taking a drink of water from a fire hose: it's powerful, abundant, and seemingly limitless.

    Student life at MIT provides a similar sense of boundless opportunity. In addition to living and collaborating with fellow students with varied talents and interests from across the globe, there is a wealth of fun activities to explore.

    Whether your interests lie in sports or politics, fine arts or mass media, there's a club or team for you. There are also numerous academic and cultural societies and support and community groups. The Sloan Business Club (SBC) organizes career, social, and academic events for students throughout the year.

    Off campus, the museums, shops, parks, and nightlife of Cambridge and Boston beckon. Take in a Red Sox game, hear the latest offerings at Symphony Hall, or take a solitary jog along the scenic Charles River. Spend the day shopping downtown or sampling the numerous food and entertainment options at Quincy Market.

    As with your MIT education, your options are powerful, abundant, and seemingly limitless.

    For more information on social activities on and off campus, please visit the MIT Community page.
