Saying protests for dorm violate its values, MIT toughens plan clearing Senior House.
The dorm has been known for decades as a creative if countercultural environment – complete with omnipresent murals and roaming cats – for an eclectic group of students that sometimes need extra support, including students of color, LGBTQI students or those who are low-income or the first in their family to attend college.
Part of the response was a petition against the Pilot 2021 changes signed by nearly 1,400 alumni dating back to 1958, including 111 pages of signatures, pleading for Barnhart to recognize how Senior House “has always been a refuge for students who feel like they don’t fit in elsewhere on campus.”
It’s reasonable to say that if there was no Senior House, there would be no Adafruit.
We emailed Cynthia Barnhart MIT Chancellor to see if she is up for an interview regarding this.
