days left until the Charles Party!

I obviously graduated well before Sean Collier joined the MIT Police, but the Campus Police have been part of the Institute for a long time. Such a part, in fact, that the resident hackers put a replica of an MIT police cruiser on top of the Great Dome in 1994. With donuts inside. So yeah, we would occasionally grumble about them, but for the most part, we knew and appreciated that they were there to keep us safe. Which is not that easy to do on campus riddled with tunnels, open to the public, and full of nocturnal student life. I find great pride in that Officer's Collier memorial was designed by the a group lead by the head of the MIT Department of Architecture, J. Meejin Yoon. I also find utterly amazing that the team managed to create a monument not only representing Sean Collier and the MIT community, but also, somehow looks entirely in-place next to the Stata Center.

And now, for some lighter fare, some of MIT kids that the Campus Police have to deal with on a daily basis--the MIT Women's Lightweight Crew.

Hey, that guy in 5 seat looks familiar.

Mid afternoon at RBC.

BU, Columbia and Syracuse in the 2V on Saturday.

Now that's what I call a hood ornament.

Whoa.. Apologies to RVL, the actual Beanpot and Muri Cup winners. Clearly I need an 800mm telephoto to see the results at the finish line from Mass Ave.

Replay of most of Saturday's racing.

Sunday mornings are really the best.

Solid lightweight racing between MIT, Cornell and Columbia this morning. Hoping for something slightly different at Sprints.

Radcliffe chasing Yale. Getting this shot may or may not have involved a 100 smoot sprint.

A window in the sky.

Looking up in Lobby 7.

Scenes from NSRI prep. Good luck to all racing, but in particular those who wear/wore stripes and/or plow our dirty waters.

Matt, Tobin and Peter heading for Mass Ave.

Mo, Lily, Tiffany and Liz seat racing.

Lauren and Hillary in the basin.

Erin and Mary practicing their terminator look.

Lucas and Dave getting ready for the double.

Hugh practicing some rough water rowing in the basin.

Austin late last fall. May have missed some people, but good luck to all of you. Let's have a Beantown final in the LM1x. :)

This guy said it all.

The entire women's podium charged by all at once.

Lelisa Desisa got a bit more separation with those pistons.

Meb is never going to pay for anything in this town ever again. Even if he didn't win.

Katie O. charged by so quickly I only saw the back of her head.

Claire had a great race, too

Carey improved her Boston time by 17 minutes.

Hard enough to do this if you can see where you are going. And a shout to all the guides out there.

This guy was happy to be getting close to the finish line.

Alex's friend Kevin made Michigan's Triathlon Team proud.

And finally, recovery is key.
