MIT is fun to walk around. There are a few little restaurants around the area that you can find if you get hungry.

Our boy was a MIT for a month and he took us around the beautiful campus. There are so many art structures on campus. The rotunda is quite an imposing structure and the Sloan school of business it another lovely building

It is a "technology" institute, so there are only modern and function-oriented buildings. But there's one thing-- convenient. I dropped by from Harvard and took the free shuttle to Mall.

The MIT campus experience was unlike any other. The campus is integrated seamlessly into the city, providing easy access to the amenities outside of the campus. The architecture of the buildings varies a lot in terms of style (the Stata Center is a must see! And the Killian Court!), and this provides a culturally diverse and enriching experience. I will...

I loved it here. When I was not studying what I was suppose to be, I was deep in the knowledge of the incredible libraries. My favorite restaurant was Top of the Hub, just across the river and looking down on the school.

My son attended a summer program at MIT. While he was in class I was able to explore the campus and surrounding area. It is a very diverse area and rich in culture. We enjoyed the MIT experience and it remains the top choice for study!

What I didn't expect was the friendly, quirky people and how nice a place it was to visit. There were little signs everywhere telling you about the clever, environmentally friendly innovations installed all over campus.

Still going after 150+ years. Don't miss the original building. The Kresge Auditorium is a great venue.
