According to Admissions Counselor Katie A. Kelley, this year’s CPW saw another increase in the number of registered students. Approximately 1,600 students volunteered to host potential members of the Class of 2015. This year, an algorithm was developed by Course VI Professor David R. Karger and two UROP students to match prefrosh to their hosts. Kelley said this process saved the Office of Admissions “hundreds of person hours” compared to their previous method of having a large staff spend days making matches by hand.

In 2005, hackers turned the Infinite Corridor into a level from the Nintendo game Mario. This weekend, to commemorate the hack, hackers put up structures — built from soda cans — of Mario and a piranha plant next to the police car in the Stata Center’s Hack Gallery. This CPW, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of MIT, hackers are installing 20–30 hacks all over campus, some of which will be performance hacks. The hacks are accompanied by a booklet, which can be found on stands by some of the hacks. Try to find them all!
