Reunion Book Information (Action Required)
We are creating an MIT Class of 1966 50th Reunion Book that will include contact information, family information, personal highlights and recollections, photos, and more. You will receive a handsome, hard-bound book at our reunion as a souvenir if you pay any level of class dues, or if you separately order and pay for a book. On October 26, all classmates received by email a link to log into the data collection service WHERE YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR DEMOGRAPHIC AND PROFILE INFORMATION. You can also log onto mit.menoreunionbooks.com and use your email address and the password previously sent to you IN AN OCTOBER EMAIL. If you do not have the password, click on the "Forgot my password" link. Since we are working on a deadline, all biographies and attendant materials SHOULD BE SUBMITTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. PLEASE submit your information no later than February 15, 2016. This will help us provide the most complete Reunion Book possible.
Self-Guided Walking Tour of the MIT Campus
There is plenty to see that is new on campus and much of that is public art and distinctive architecture. Included in your registration package (starting in mid-March) will be two brochures for self-guided walking tours: (1) A campus map showing the expansion of MIT since 1916, and (2) an art-focused campus map. You may find these helpful while you are visiting MIT. The art-focused map will highlight much of MIT's outstanding public art and archtitecture throughout the campus. The MIT List Visual Arts Center has a website that contains images of the art/architecture, as well as an interactive map, in some cases with audio clips. In the schedule below, click on any [ART] link to go to one of the Arts Center's images of public art/architecture at that venue.
