Student Activities Office

The Student Activities Office provides an environment for students to test new ideas, develop leadership skills and create community at MIT, while advocating for and affirming their identities. Through co-curricular opportunities and experiences such as student organizations, events, cross-cultural education, civic engagement and leadership development, students gain invaluable skills and experiential knowledge that they will continue to develop during their time on campus and beyond as future leaders.
