The MIT Club of Puget Sound, part of the MIT Alumni Association, is an all-volunteer run organization for MIT Alumni living in the greater Seattle area. Each year we host a number of exciting events like these:
  • Monthly lectures and events featuring prominent local speakers and visiting professors from MIT
  • Monthly Happy Hours/Networking Events in Seattle and the Eastside
  • The Science and Engineering Program for Teachers (SEPT), in which we select five teachers each year to attend this one-week summer program for primary, middle, and high-school teachers to take a "drink from the fire hose" that is MIT
  • Discounted attendance to MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest events
  • A December luncheon with current MIT students from our area during their Winter break
  • A dinner honoring new students admitted to MIT for the following year
  • Our Annual Summer Picnic, a great chance to meet old friends and make new ones
Our Club is supported 100% by volunteers and dues/donations from members - we hope you'll join us.
