Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge near Boston, is one of the premier research universities in the world.
Although Cambridge is a long way from SSP's original home in Southern California, SSPers have been enrolling there for decades ... and teaching there too. Before
Prof. Ed Bertschinger headed MIT's Department of Physics, he was SSP class of '75 and a Teaching Assistant from '79 to '82.
In recent years an 10-15 SSP alumni (out of 72) each fall choose to enroll at MIT for their undergraduate education, and others are there as grad students.
In 2012, MIT overtook Caltech as the most frequent undergraduate destination of SSP alumni.
MIT lists SSP on its website as an affiliated summer program.
