Save the Dates!
June 2-5, 2016
Planning for our 50th Reunion began on February 25, 2015. We now have a large Reunion Committee putting the final pieces together for a memorable 50th.
Reunion Book Information (Action Required)
We are creating an MIT Class of 1966 Reunion book that will include contact information, family information, personal highlights and recollections, photos, and more. The books will be offered to all classmates attending reunion events and all classmates who pay class dues. On October 26, all classmates received by email a link to log into the data collection service for this book. You can also log in to mit.menoreunionbooks.com and use your email address and the password sent to you in that message. If you do not have the password, you may use the "Forgot my password" link. Since we are working on a deadline, all biographies and attendant materials will be collected online and MUST be submitted no later than February 15, 2016 to be included in the book. Please 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. 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.
