It’s party time ya’ll!

Dance like Michael Jackson like Benedict Cumberbatch!

Tim, MIT’s beloved beaver mascot, turns 100 years old this Friday, January 17th, and we want you to celebrate with us!

This Friday, the Campus Activities Complex team will have cupcakes, giveaways, and live music as we celebrate our favorite beaver, and of course, you can get your photo taken with the Birthday Beaver himself!

Stop by the W20 Lobby between 1130am and 130pm to celebrate, and check out this website for more info!
