A member of the New England Women's & Men's Athletic Conference, the school boasts about 675 athletes (about one in five students!) with the most popular sports being Rowing, Basketball, Football. The school has earned 233 Academic All-America citations, the most of any DIII school in the United States. On campus, there are 10 athletic facilities, 26 fields, and the Zesiger Center Gymnasium.

MIT also has over 500 student activity groups ranging from a campus radio station to the Quidditch Team to the Laboratory for Chocolate Science. Students can also take part in the Lecture Series Committee, model railroad club, folk dance, and ROTC. There are 72 ethnic and cultural associations, over 60 musical/theater/dance clubs, 23 religious organizations, 21 activism groups, and more to choose from.

Students also have the advantage of living so close to Boston where they can meet the 250,000 other students in the area. Many decide to volunteer at organizations such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters, or the Change a Life Program to help with homeless shelters, nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and more.
