50th Reunion - Save the Dates! - June 2-5, 2016
Planning for our 50th Reunion began on February 25. We have formed a Reunion Committee. If you are an alumnus or alumna of the class and want to participate more actively in the planning, please contact the Reunion Committee Chair, Ralph Schmitt.
Preliminary Schedule for our 50th Reunion in June 2016
Our headquarters hotel will be the recently remodeled Boston Marriott Cambridge in Kendall Square. Most reunion events will be within walking distance of this location. Note that this schedule does not include resort activities, registration hours, events for donors, and special programs. Events shown below in bold red will be unique to our 50th Reunion.
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. 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, which is displayed throughout the campus. The MIT List Visual Arts Center has a website that contains images of the art, 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 at that venue.
