Open house, faculty panel to greet international arrivals


The annual International Open House and "Evening with MIT Faculty" will be held today (August 28) in the Bush Room (10-105) to welcome international newcomers to the Institute.

The Open House, sponsored by the International Students Office and the International Scholars Office, is an informal gathering designed to help international students, research scholars, faculty and their families get settled here. Members of the MIT community are invited to stop in from 9:30am-5pm and answer questions. Representatives from various campus organizations and services will also be on hand. A special play area will be set aside for children. Volunteers are also needed.

The "Evening with the MIT Faculty" will take place from 7:30- 9pm. The panel, chaired by Samuel J. Keyser, professor of linguistics and philosophy and special assistant to the provost, will include five other MIT professors.
