Campus Preview Weekend

In April, students accepted to MIT for the coming fall are invited to attend Campus Preview Weekend (CPW). CPW provides a great opportunity for students to stop by the program, meet our current students and staff, and check out our facilities. Information sessions are offered during this time, which are required for students who wish to apply to ESG for early admission. We highly recommend that students attend an information session during CPW if they are on campus and have an interest in the program. Attending will not commit you to the program, but you won’t be able to apply to ESG without it.

PLEASE NOTE: Since MIT has closed for public gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ESG will host its traditional CPW events virtually using Zoom.

ESG’s “Meet the Staff” session is designed for students and parents who are interested in learning more about the staff who teach at ESG.

ESG’s Remote Information Sessions (RIS) are also held via Zoom, but are for students only as a means for discussing how ESG works and to help students decide if ESG is a good fit for them. Each remote info session allows up to 6 prefrosh at a time to converse with an ESG staff member and an upperclass student.  During each remote info session, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the program.

To sign up for a remote info session during CPW, send an e-mail to esglizards@mit.edu before Wednesday, April 14, 2021, at 12:00 PM ET and request a time slot (notice that the days and times are noted in Eastern Time).

Information sessions are limited to 6 students per session and are run on a first-come, first-served basis.  There will be multiple information sessions taking place during each of the times slots listed below.

Remote information session times during CPW:

Time slot #1: Thursday, 4/15/2021, 4:00-4:30 PM ET SESSION FULL

Time slot #2: Thursday, 4/15/2021, 4:30-5:00 PM ET SESSION FULL

“Pasta dinner” hangout with current ESG students

Since food around social and study events is ever-present at ESG, we invite prefrosh to bring their own food to this informal virtual dinner hangout. Drop in anytime between 7:00-9:00 PM ET, relax with ESG frosh and upperclass students, and find out from their perspective what the ESG experience is all about. This event is exclusively for prefrosh (interested parents should participate in the “Meet the Staff” zoom meeting on Saturday 4/17 at 1 PM ET).
