Stay Connected and Get Involved

Our alumni are important to us, and we encourage you to maintain your personal and professional ties with EAPS and MIT.

There are so many ways to get involved.  Stop by Building 54 when you are in Cambridge, read our twice-yearly newsletter EAPSpeaks and our annual print newsletter EAPS Scope, check in on EAPS Facebook page or Twitter for the very latest news, or join us for departmental events. We have a vast selection of departmental lectures on offer and we also host annual receptions for EAPS alums and donors at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, the Society for Exploration Geophysicists Annual Meeting and the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting. There are also special named annual lectures such as the Carlson Lecture at the New England Aquarium – please keep an eye open for EAPS invitations in your mailbox!

For alums who can provide sage career advice for our graduate students and postdocs, why not volunteer as an EAPS Career Mentor and stop by Building 54 to have a special coffee and chat session with some of our scientists who are contemplating their next step after MIT?

If you love to travel, check out MIT Alumni Travel opportunities and try an adventure with an EAPS/MIT professor. There are many exciting opportunities to see the world, brush up on your knowledge or learn something new! See the whole 2015 schedule at
