Off the Court at MIT: Major is undecided.

Why I Chose MIT: It's pretty rare that you find yourself in an environment that’s as welcoming, engaging, and inspiring as MIT. Whether studying in the classroom or balling on the court, students here do more than live day to day; they rise to the challenge, and they do so as a team. In addition to an abundance of opportunities through UROPs and internships, the strong culture of teamwork and collaboration is why I chose MIT. Everyone pushes you to be your best self in a supportive, encouraging environment, and I’m excited I get to be a part of this community.
