Signs spells out Orientation

On April 28, sixty-five of MIT’s finest undergraduates selected as Orientation Leaders, Captains, and Coordinators joined forces to prepare for the 1,070 new students who will join MIT this fall. The student leaders discussed key issues incoming students may face including managing new social experiences and academic rigors at the institution. Leaders brainstormed strategies for empowering students to successfully navigate their new environment and to explore the wealth of resources available to them at MIT. To officially welcome the incoming class on their first day at MIT, teams of leaders also designed letters to create a large sign that spells out the word “Orientation”.

With a cohesive group of energetic and engaged student leaders, Orientation for the Class of 2014 is sure to be the best one yet. Here’s to a new class building rich, fulfilling lives here at MIT!
