About the Event

History of MIT & Architecture of the Cambridge Campus

with Jay Mackro


About the Presentation

2016 marks the centennial of MIT's Cambridge campus. Join fellow OC alumni and guests as Jay Mackro ('71 Course II Mechanical Eng) leads us in a discussion of the people, ideas and events that shaped the campus design.

This talk will draw on two books: "Becoming MIT: Moments of Decision" edited by David Kaiser and "Designing MIT" by Prof. Mark Jarzombek.


About our Speaker 

Jay Mackro holds a SB and SM in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and an MBA from Stanford. He spent most of his career building minicomputers, with stints in engineering, real estate and marketing. At present, he is CFO, CIO and janitor for Headlands Consulting, a family-operated clinical trials consultancy.


The Fine Print

A Buffet Lunch will be available for $20 in advance via the website, $20 at the door (cash or credit). This price includes the buffet, iced tea, sherbet, tax and tip. Other drinks and desserts are available a la carte. Full credit for future OC lunches can be given if you pay in advance but cannot attend at the last minute.

It is not necessary to purchase lunch in order to attend this event.

Lunch is available starting at 11:30am. The talk, including Q&A, will be from noon-1:00pm. Post-talk networking will last until 1:30pm or as long as UCI doesn't kick us out.

We are usually located in Conference Room C, which is all the way in the back of the Club, past the buffet service tables. If the room is changed for some reason, signs will guide you. 

Parking is free in the University Club lot for the duration of our event.  If the lot is full, parking is available in the Anteater Parking Structure two blocks away for a fee (directions below).
