2015 Fall Rush Schedule

We are a non-Greek co-ed Independent Living Group (ILG) at Kenmore Square, Boston, across the Charles River from MIT. Consisting of 22 undergraduate students, we are a supportive, friendly, close-knit community. We are perhaps the most diverse group at MIT, with members from more than 15 countries majoring in various Courses.

As a community, we enjoy delicious home-cooked dinners together every Sunday to Thursday. We have weekly social nights and movie nights, in addition to organizing our Thanksgiving Formal and Spring Formal.

The Rush Process:

Unlike fraternities and sororities, we do not have a formal rush process. Instead, our informal rush runs over the semester, giving us time to know you and you to know us.
