MIT is raising $1.5 billion for the capital campaign. What do you think MIT should spend that money on?

Probably improve facilities for sports. I heard they cut JV sports. Also: beautify the campus -- this campus is pretty depressing.

I think some of it should go back to the athletic budget. If they are willing to cut the budget, they should put some money back into it.

Considering the fact that the 2001 decision is still happening, it should go towards residences.

The two most important categories are capital projects and student life. There are all sorts of things that MIT has to keep spending money on like fellowship endowments, which I don’t think about. But new buildings and new facilities.

I think one of the most urgent needs is improvements in residence facilities and programs. That goes for on campus housing and FSILGS.

Matthew K. Belmonte

Bettering the MIT campus; some of the facilities are really run down. I know the labs are really run down. They can also build dorms because they can’t house everyone.

Michelle E. Park ’02

They could bring back the JV teams they had to cut because of budget constraints.

Alyssa S. Thorvaldsen ’01

I feel that MIT should use the money to support extra curricular activities such as art classes and Junior Varsity sports because I don’t think there are enough opportunities to have fun and do things aside from studying, without a huge time commitment.
