Research shows the success of a bacterial community depends on its shape.
One of the many perks of being a student, staff or faculty member at MIT is free access to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts.
Students can enjoy the MFA's exhibitions and cultural programs by presenting their current student ID at the museum. MIT staff members can borrow one of eight membership passes to the MFA for daily or weekend use. Reservations are only accepted 24 hours before desired date of use. Call 253-4003 and pick up passes in Room E15-205. MIT's membership at the MFA is underwritten by the Council for the Arts at MIT.
