Exploration and Collaboration
We foster a community that promotes research, knowledge, and creativity in the classroom and the lab.
Camilo Espinosa SB ’18
Growing up in Columbia, I equated MIT with the joy of learning I had cultivated all throughout high school. I love finding out how the world works, not only as a biologist but also through the social sciences. MIT allowed me to explore all these interests; every semester I chose my classes based on what I thought was interesting — not because I had to, but because I wanted to. I came here because I thought MIT would foster that kind of interdisciplinary learning, and it has.
