I visited MIT and even attended to class as a listener thanks to a good friend who studies there. The lecture rooms were awesome, I can say that it was the best experience to me. Student life was also something that catches my attention.

MIT is an interesting place to visit, especially if you work In the education sector as its always fun to compare facilities. And boy are their facilities good. It's spread out over loads of different campuses but well worth a trip.

We visited the MIT Museum, attended the 2015 Zero Robotics World Finals, had an admissions briefing and campus tour. All very well done. Great campus, friendly people. Will be happy to have our son attend this institution.

The student union was a nice stop on our walk across the bridge in 20 degree weather with the wind blowing, causing a great need for a potty break. MIT, you came through again.

Very open campus, you can wander around and open doors without much restriction. People were helpful pointing us in the right direction. Pretty piece of real estate along the Charles River. The buildings themselves... More
