Stephen D. Immerman has been appointed President of Montserrat College of Art, a small residential art college in Beverly, MA. Immerman has been at MIT in various positions since 1979.

An attempted robbery took place last Friday at the intersection of Mass Ave., and Vassar St. at 11:12 p.m., the MIT Police said. The victim was grabbed from behind while stopped to tie his shoe, and two suspects, both “dark-skinned black males, 5'7"–5'9", approximately 15 years old” attempted to remove his backpack. The assailants were unsuccessful in taking the backpack and fled east on Vassar St. towards Main St.
