Weekends@MIT is an initiative aimed at increasing the availability of substance-free, weekend, late night, social events on campus. Subscribe to our weekly newsletter to hear about events. You can also get involved by joining our student group, SaveTFP or co-sponsoring an event in the Coffeehouse Lounge.
SaveTFP is a student organization that hosts fun, food-filled events every Friday night in a relaxed, entertaining social atmosphere. Events are always free and open to the entire MIT community. Sponsored by the Alcohol and Other Drugs Services office, SaveTFP is committed to reducing stress and facilitating student social activities while increasing health awareness and curbing dangerous behaviors at MIT. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or ideas.
