Do you think IAP is necessary?

I think it is a good to have it, but it’s not totally necessary. It gives us a break and time to explore new things that we don’t have time for during the semester.

Warit Wichakool ’00

I think it is beneficial to the students because they get to experience things that they don’t get to during the semester because they are so busy with their studies.

Justin T. McCue G

I think it is a good time for students to take a well deserved break and it is a good time to concentrate on research.

Tiffany S. Santos ’02

It’s not necessary, but it is fun.

Marisa J. Kirschbaum ’00

Hellz yeah.

David H. Alexander ’02

Yes, it’s great to be at MIT and do what you want to do -- not what you have to do.
