Facing some pretty cold temperatures, the Office of the First Year (OFY) welcomed 900 of our first-year students to campus over Valentine’s Day weekend. We played music, handed out some sweet MIT swag, and respected all COVID-19 guidelines, which made for a successful arrival weekend. Following move-in, the Class of 2024 participated in two days of Orientation programming. The events typically held in August were modified for Zoom, including a new program where members of the Class of 2021 reflected on their experiences living on-campus this past fall and gave sage advice to the 2024s.
