Partners and Families
Partners and families are very much integrated into the fabric of MIT Sloan. They bring a welcome balance to the community. Partners and children participate in many student events and have their own robust roster of activities and a full-time support system. Partners and families form lifelong bonds, strengthened by the shared MIT experience.
Significant Others of Sloan
The Significant Others of Sloan Club helps partners and families acclimate to life at MIT Sloan. This active network provides community resources and plans family-friendly activities throughout the year. The club also provides opportunities to be involved in activities or work experiences at MIT and in the greater Boston community.
Meet the Significant Others of MIT Sloan
What is it like to be a Significant Other (otherwise known as an SO) here? Like our students, they represent a range of backgrounds and interests. They experience MIT Sloan in their own way, yet create a cohesive community.

My personal hobbies are rock climbing, playing squash and the ocean. I am happiest on the water with my friends and family on a sunny day.
Boston, MA, although I was living in NYC for the last five years before moving for Sloan.
I work in Financial Services, but in my free time I love running, traveling, dancing, spending time with friends, and trying all the great restaurants in Boston. I'm also very involved in the Significant Others of Sloan (SOS) Club and the SO Bookclub.
