PE Lessons

While skating with the MIT FSC unfortunately does not count for PE credit, there are basic PE skating classes taught by the Athletics Department in the 2nd quarter, IAP, and 3rd quarter. There is also a figure skating class (prerequisite is the basic skating PE class) offered during IAP and the 3rd quarter. Check the MIT Department of Athletics website for more details.
