Comedy Comes to Campus – Friday, Oct. 2nd

It’s Fall.  We have a Festival for you! Fall Festival!  It’s a super fun comedy show featuring some of the top comedic talent out there right now.  We are super excited about this year’s show, happening in Kresge Auditorium this Friday at 8pm!

MIT’s UA Events Committee is proud to present Chris Hardwick of Comedy Central’s @midnight as this year’s Fall Festival comedian!

The host of the Nerdist podcast is bringing new material to MIT this Friday. So whether you love nerd comedy, are in need of an outrageous dose of pop culture satire, or can relate to internet enthusiasts everywhere (hey, a lot of us were raised by the internet!), make sure to purchase your tickets ASAP at tickets.mit.edu!

You should totally buy tickets, invite some friends, and come hang out!

“Not coming Friday.” 😦

 

Get updates and more information on the show at our Facebook event as well!

See you all Friday night at Kresge for our show with Chris Hardwick!

Time for Emerging Leaders Conference!

Welcome to the Class of 2019 and welcome back to the Class of 2018!

Hopefully you had a great summer, and your first couple of days this semester have been smooth and fun.

How many PSets do you have?  Hopefully not too many.

Are you doing anything cool this weekend?  That does sound fun!

Well, whether you have fun things to do or nothing to do this weekend, if you are a first-year or a sophomore, you absolutely should look at submitting an application for the Emerging Leaders Conference!

Happening Sept. 25-26 out at the Endicott House (MIT’s private conference center with AMAZINGGGGGGG food and hospitality), Emerging Leaders Conference is a chance to explore what leadership means to you and to develop an understanding of what opportunities exist at MIT to help you develop your leadership skills!

There is cake… at the Endicott House. Yummy food is icing on the leadership cake during Emerging Leaders Conference!

 

Learn more about the program here, and if you have any questions, feel free to email Elizabeth Thompson, our new Assistant Director for Leadership Programs (who you’ll meet next week!), for more info at erthomps@mit.edu!

 

Did we mention ELC is free?!?!
