Cantabrigians can look forward to a beautiful rest of the week, with temperatures forecast to barely break 90 during the day and humidity expected to remain relatively low. Clouds will move in starting on Friday, but rain isn’t expected until Sunday at the earliest.
A campus newspaper is a great way to find out what a college is like. When I was doing my campus tours, I always made sure to pick up a copy of the campus daily (or twice-weekly). Hidden among the pages are the collective values, fears, and triumphs of the student body. Plus, a newspaper’s objectivity simultaneously reveals the best and worst in a college. During your stay here at MIT, and wherever else you may be visiting, be sure to pick up a publication and read it not only for content, but for subtext. If you’re reading this, you’ve already completed step one. Let’s take a stroll through some recent issues of <i>The Tech</i> and the newspapers of some other colleges you may be considering to see what we can find out.
