A warm welcome to the newest members of the OVC staff!
Associate Advisors (AAs) are MIT sophomores, juniors, and seniors who provide academic support and resources to first-year students. Matched with a faculty advisor, they provide the student perspective on MIT academics and student life to a small group of 6-10 advisees. Since associate advisors are busy students themselves, they need access to quick-and-easy to use resources.
The Office of Experiential Learning recently hired its first cohort of Experiential Learning Student Ambassadors. The group includes 11 undergraduate students from a variety of majors and MIT communities who have collectively completed Experiential Learning Opportunities (ELOs) through UROP, MISTI, PKG, Edgerton, D-Lab, Sandbox, and more!

The Admissions Office is pleased to announce that Campus Preview Weekend (CPW) will be held April 13 through April 16.

The Teaching + Learning Lab is asking for your help in getting the word out to students about TLL’s Flipping Failure initiative, a collection of video and audio stories told by MIT students about their path toward resilience when faced with academic challenges.
