How To Adult


Social Hours

How to Adult

How to Adult is an annual series of events meant to support students in developing skills for life. Events include an etiquette dinner to help students get comfortable sharing a meal with a future employer or boss, a dating workshop that offers strategies for how to ask someone on a date, and two alumni social hours where students can practice networking with recent MIT alumni working in the Greater Boston area. These events set students up for success outside of the classroom and after graduation and are generously sponsored by MIT’s Alumni Association, Global Education and Career Development, International Students Office and Student Activities Office.
