Letter from the President:

Welcome to the MIT Club of Wisconsin’s website!

We’re glad you found us.

The MIT Club of Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula serves 500+ alumni throughout the region. Our activities serve MIT alumni, current students, and friends of the club. Our wide range of events includes our signature event Technology Achievement Awards, plus tours of Museums and 3D printing facilities, celebration of MIT through events such as Toast to IAP), and student sendoffs. Please join the club if you are not already a  member as you will help support these events, provide donations to worthy organizations, and receive discounted rates to events. You don’t have to be affiliated with MIT to join our club; we also have a Friends category. For more information,
please contact Allyn Ziegenhagen.

These activities are put together by a board of MIT alumni (both undergraduate and graduate.) I'd like to invite you to contact me if you are interested in learning more about becoming a board member. Currently most of our events are in Madison or Milwaukee. However, if you live elsewhere in the state and would be interested in becoming a board member and helping host events in your area that would be great!

Another way to relive those MIT days is by becoming an educational counselor (EC). ECs interview prospective high school students who are applying to MIT. We are in need of ECs throughout the state, please contact me for more information.

The club has recently launched a new partnership with FIRST Robotics (a high school robotics building competition). We are looking for MIT alumni to serve as mentors for these students throughout the state. Please contact Christie Lin for more information.

The MIT Club of Wisconsin assists current MIT students with finding summer jobs. If your company is interested please contact Allyn Ziegenhagen.

Finally, I'm asking that you please take a short survey, which will better help us serve you.
