Social Connect

“I began to proactively participate in different activities held by S&P, which in turn gave me more opportunities to meet new friends and practice English.”

One Time Events

Members organize weekly, monthly, and one-time events for individuals, couples and families, including evening social events and trips around town. We collaborate with other campus groups to offer events like barbecues, ice skating parties, the kids clothing exchange, and happy hours. Sign up for our email list and check out the calendar and Facebook group to find out about upcoming events

Wednesday meetings

Come enjoy a different activity and meet other spouses every Wednesday. Every week we invite speakers from MIT, the community, or our group to share their expertise; we visit interesting places in Boston; or we socialize around art and fitness.

  • When: Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m., from February to May and from September to December (unless otherwise noted on the calendar). The room opens at 3 p.m. for socializing and childcare drop-off. The activity begins at 3:30 p.m. and usually lasts about one hour.
  • Where: the Eastgate Penthouse on the 29th Floor (the last Wednesday of the month in the Westgate Basement Lounge). A MS&PC host will be in the lobby to greet you from 3-3:30 p.m. Otherwise you can call the Penthouse or the Basement Lounge from the wall phone in the lobby to gain access.
  • Childcare: Babies and children are welcome in our meetings, and free optional childcare is available first come, first served, in a room close by during our meetings. Our babysitters are MS&PC members who have child care experience and have been CPR/First Aid trained. The youngest children we accept into the childcare room are babies who can sit up on their own, but we may be able to accommodate younger babies, depending on the day.

Interest Groups

Our interest groups and classes are created and led by members. Members can come together to share interests and learn something new - from book discussion to cooking to fitness to parent-child play groups.

Check our calendar for a complete listing of our groups and classes.
