Boston Weather: 60.0°F | A Few Clouds

Biology
What aspect of CPW are you most excited about?
I really like how excited everybody got about what they do. I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to do anything interdisciplinary, because other people tell you when you say you’re going to MIT that “oh, you’re only going to major in one thing,” but it sounds like there is a lot of time to do interdisciplinary things, and any separation between disciplines is a false dichotomy. I think the problem is going to be narrowing it down, because everything sounds so fascinating.
Are there any events that particularly interest you?
Biology stuff sounds cool. Oh, and all the FIREHOSE events. All of the topics sound really good. I don’t know if I can stay up until 3 a.m., though.
