This fall, 985 students will arrive at MIT as the Class of 2006. This number exceeds the target of 980 chosen for dormitory decrowding purposes by only five students.
In a recent speech to the MIT Club of Boston, Director of Athletics Candace L. Royer talked about the ongoing work on the Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center and the reorganization of the department of athletics, physical education, and recreation.
President Vest, members of the Corporation, the faculty, the administration, graduates, your families and friends, let me first say how deeply honored I am to be here in what is essentially a family celebration, a celebration for each of you on your achievements, a celebration at a very important moment in your lives, a moment when you are reflecting, a moment when you’re looking forward.
