  • Lovely campus near Charles River. Took a uber to MIT from Wharf area. Many research buildings on this beautiful campus. If you are a student or not, it’s worth to visit, dream for architecture lovers.
  • Beautiful campus, brilliant minds. Lots of restaurants on campus. The beautiful Charles river is next door and you can go sailing there! We did that too!
  • As a visitor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), I am absolutely thrilled with the experience. The campus is stunning, with modern architecture and beautiful green spaces. It is easy to see why MIT consistently ranks among the top universities in the world. The facilities are state-of-the-art, and the students and faculty are clearly passionate about what they do. I can't wait to come back and explore more! MIT has a rich history dating back to 1861 when it was founded in response to the increasing industrialization of the United States. Its original mission was to provide practical education in science and engineering, and it has since expanded to become a world-renowned research university. MIT has been at the forefront of many groundbreaking technological advancements, from the development of radar during World War II to the creation of the first computer mouse. Today, MIT remains committed to excellence in education and research, with a focus on addressing the world's most pressing challenges. What sets MIT apart is its culture of innovation and collaboration. The students and faculty are encouraged to think outside the box and pursue ambitious projects that have the potential to change the world. Whether it's developing new renewable energy technologies or using machine learning to improve healthcare outcomes, MIT is constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible. As a visitor, I am inspired by the creativity and dedication of everyone I've met on campus. I can't wait to see what amazing things will come out of MIT in the years to come.
  • Amazingly beautiful campus for the most part! My friend went here so I wanted to explore it a bit and enjoyed the unique architecture here!
  • 6/29/22 in town for a doctors appointment tomorrow . My husband and I decide to walk a little and found MIT . I really love the green space in the middle and the art work . I am seating on a bench right in front of the Biology building (where I am sure one of my acquaintances spent a lot time to get his PHD) . Quite and pleasant . ❤️
