When not rescuing puppies and curing cancer, I tend to indulge in a little bit of crime fighting. By "rescuing puppies and curing cancer", I mean studying at MIT. And by "crime fighting", I mean track.

E6188: Heat and Mass Transfer in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
Would you like to solve the energy crisis, save the world, and be awesome? Interested in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, thermodynamics, or improving efficiency? Who isn't? In this class, we'll go over what heat really is, where it goes, and how we can make it be less annoying. Note: You don't actually have to save the world to come, but it never hurts. Feel free to bring paper, pens, calculator, etc, but it won't be necessary.

X6195: How to NOT Be a Froshy Frosh in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
No one wants to be "that guy". You know the one: sits in the front row of EVERY class, way too excited about everything, brags about SAT scores, does every extra credit assignment, etc, etc. Every year, colleges seem to have hundreds of freshmen that fit this description all too well. Stop that. You will learn the guidelines to making your first year of college relaxed and educational, setting yourself up for success later on, and not pissing off the rest of the student body/world. When in doubt, always refer back to Rule #1. You have to show up to learn Rule #1.
