The MIT Student Services department runs a number of recreational events for students to attend throughout the year. Getting involved in student activities is one of the fastest and easiest ways for students to make new friends and feel connected with MIT community. 
Becoming engaged with other students creates a sense of belonging, helps you develop and grow outside the classroom, and possibly even gain access to opportunities for leadership experience.

MIT conducts a wide range of social and career focused events throughout each Trimester. Students are encouraged to participate in events both on and off campus.
