Right in between Cambridge and Boston. Running down the Charles River would be great, and there are plenty of shops. However, with this location comes traffic and agressive drivers.

Campus Visit Notes for Massachusetts Institute of Technology


Visit Description:

I visited MIT for one of the information center and campus tour combination visit. The information center was interesting and had a lot of vital information which I didn't know from thoughly browsing the website. After the information session, there was a campus tour guided by current student, and this was also an equality informative experience. It seemed like every building we walked through had some story to it, and the guide was knowledgable in almost all of the subjects that MIT offered, not just her major.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

My family and I stayed in the Marriot Couryard in Cambridge. It's a regular quality hotel with nothing extremely bad or good about it.
