The centerpiece of MIT’s sesquicentennial is the Next Century Convocation, an April 10 celebration that will mark the Institute’s charter day with academic regalia, original music, and speeches by renowned intellectuals. The event recalls MIT’s Mid-Century Convocation in 1949, when Winston Churchill challenged the Institute to address the moral and social implications of science and technology. Get event details online: mit150.mit.edu/events/convocation.

The convocation is slated for the Boston Convention and Events Center. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni can catch a free shuttle from campus to the convention center for the festivities, which will go from 2 to 4 p.m. Check with your local MIT club about chartered buses from nearby areas. For people who won’t be in the area, clubs are planning gatherings worldwide where alumni and friends can celebrate together as they watch a convocation webcast. If that’s not possible, you can watch the archived webcast later.

Learn how you can be involved in the convocation—and the symposia, arts festivals, and other MIT 150 activities now through June 4—online at mit150.mit.edu/alumni.

Tech Reunions Feature MIT150 Finale

If this is your reunion year, make plans now to come to campus to see old friends, learn what’s new at MIT—and be part of Toast to Tech, a communitywide celebration in Killian Court that will cap the 150 days of activities commemorating the Institute’s sesquicentennial.

You can register online for Tech Reunions 2011, June 2-5, beginning in mid-March. The MIT150 champagne and dessert event is set for Saturday, June 4, at 9:30 p.m. Visit alum.mit.edu/reunions for information.
