Research shows the success of a bacterial community depends on its shape.
The MIT Alumni Association has launched a new web site designed to introduce 2002 graduates to the programs and services they will enjoy as alumni. Entitled "You Made It!" the site offers June graduates a chance to sign up for an alumni e-mail account and vote in Class of 2002 alumni officer elections.
Launched on May 1, the web site offers services of interest to both graduates and undergraduates. A link to the Institute Career Assistance Network (ICAN) offers new graduates a place to network online with fellow alumni in particular regions, professions or industries. A link to alumni clubs provides a chance to join a regional MIT club--often at reduced or no cost for the first year. Both features are designed to help alumni stay connected with one another after they leave campus.
Members of the Class of 2002 can vote for alumni class officers on the site until May 16. Results will be posted shortly thereafter. And they can use the site to register for the Infinite Connection, MIT's suite of online services for alumni. The account is free and includes access to the online alumni directory.
The site will remain available to 2002 graduates at least through July.
