Small glimpse of spring this week, temperatures set to drop again on Pi Day

This week in Cambridge, we can expect a couple of days of lovely, sunny weather that help us to get a glimpse of what’s to come (hopefully soon) during springtime in the Northeast. Make sure to try to spend some time outside and soak up that Vitamin D on Thursday and Friday, which will be optimal for a few hours between classes laying out on Killian Court. Unfortunately, the weekend we will experience a 20 degree drop as Pi Day approaches. Despite the gloomier temperature on Sunday, don’t forget to celebrate Pi Day! Many future members of the Class of 2025 will receive notification of their admission to MIT on Sunday, so, buckle up, make your favorite Pi, celebrate the new incoming class, and cross your fingers, because Spring Solstice is near. 

Don’t forget to set back your clocks one hour this Sunday! Even though we might be losing one hour of sleep, we will start seeing longer days soon. More light, more Vitamin D, more serotonin, MIT. We got this.
