Media Lab hires undergraduates

To the Editor:

The Media Laboratory is the largest single patron of UROP at MIT. Hence, I was surprised to read that "few undergraduates really have any business there at all." [Andrew Bein's column entitled "The administration's shadow lies over MIT's spontaneity," Apr. 12.]

In addition to the ten research groups housed by the lab, there is an academic program which enjoys a sizeable undergraduate enrollment. Needless to say, the Hayden and List Galleries encourage undergraduate participation.
