MIT is known for being one of the best schools in the country, but that doesn't mean anything to us. We're egalitarian, diverse, and share a love of "hacking" - our word for pranking.

When you're playing in the snow during our relaxing, amazing January term, it's "I Have Truly Found Paradise". Our class rings are also famous- rumored to be the most recognized ring besides the Super Bowl ring and the West Point ring
