No visit to Cambridge is complete without visiting MIT. A world class University with a beautiful campus and brilliant students and faculty hustling between classes in full view of the Charles River and Boston skyline. Not to missed.

The campus is just too big that you won’t know where to go. There is no information desk at student activity center. So I highly recommend you to download a map from MIT and follow that.

Was here for MIT Splash and my son did the signup but neglected to sign me up for the tour. Did the self-guided one and was very impressed with facility and integration with the business community. Met some fascinating people along the way.

Loved the overview given by an admissions officer. My daughter feels she would be right at home here where the quirky & nerdy seem to rule.

We strolled in and around the campus and enjoyed the architectural design of the buildings. Inside the halls was also pretty cool and attending one of the classes was a highlight!
