Hey Student Group Officers!
We are hosting the "Boston T Party", one of the major events of
Orientation, in the Stata Center on the night Tuesday, August 29th to
give undergraduate student groups a more laid back opportunity to
interact with (and entertain) the incoming frosh. Keep in mind that this
is not a recruiting event and neither group sign-ups nor advertisements will
be permitted. However, the point is for the frosh to interact with
members of your group in a friendly, non-competitive manner... and to
eat free food.
The concept of the event is that we will orient the frosh to important
areas in the Boston metro area by clustering student groups, food and
entertainment at different "T stops" located along the length of the
Stata Center. As a result, we will try to cluster different groups near
relevant T stops (i.e if the Gilbert & Sullivan Players wanted to
perform scenes from a show, we'd likely put them at "Boylston" for the
Theatre District). For all of the groups that don't fit into a relevant
district of Boston, we're asking you to try to come up with a clever way
to make your presence or your activity somehow relevant to the culture,
food or landmarks specific to a certain T-stop or neighborhood of the
Boston/Cambridge metro area. If your group is still interested in
participating, but can't come up with a good idea, don't worry, we'll
work you in somehow.
So, to sum up, THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH THE INCOMING
FRESHMEN AND TO GET THEM INTERESTED IN YOUR ACTIVITY in a relaxed and
fun atmosphere. We'll have plenty of free food and drinks and
entertainment aplenty. We'd especially like to invite some of our
talented musical and acappella groups to put on a few numbers as well.
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU BY FRIDAY, AUGUST 18TH:
- To e-mail "T-party-organizers at mit.edu" to let us know if your group is
interested in having a presence at the event (whether you have an idea
In the e-mail:
- Include a T stop that you would think your group would fit well in (if
- Include your concept for a booth or activity that would showcase your
activity, be relevant to the theme and hopefully be fun (if applicable)
- Include whether your group will need help in funding your activity
(supplies, decorations, music, etc...) We have money set aside to help
fund your presence at the event!
- Include whether you will need any Early Returns (these are in short
supply and will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis)
You do not want to miss this party, it's really going to be a blast!
