Athletic Center.

http://web.mit.edu/asa/publicity/midway.html and fill out the request form by

3. MIT Museum: Calling all tour guides!

Do you know the person who leads an edible mushroom tour of MIT?
Has your class produced promenade theater in the MIT tunnels?

In celebration of MIT's 150th birthday, the MIT Museum is mounting a major
exhibition celebrating the history, people, ideas, activities, and character of
the Institute. In connection with this exhibition, we want to know about
existing tours of MIT, from the traditional to the outrageous.

If you have any leads on official or non-official MIT campus tours, please
contact Rebecca Uchill at ruchill at mit.edu. Ultimately, we will connect visitors
with an array of these tours, perhaps in combination with each other (a dance
practice-meets-molecular gastronomy tour? sign me up!)


Please feel free to email asa-exec at mit.edu with any requests, questions, or
other inquiries.

The ASA Executive Board
