Topic Specific Zooms with MTS Community Members
Throughout the admission season we offer a variety of topic specific Zooms to highlight areas of our program and community. MTS community members and faculty open each Zoom with some brief reflections, and then the majority of the time is spent in small breakout rooms to allow for plenty of questions and answers directly between prospective families and community members. Topic specific Zooms start at 1:00 pm and end at 1:45 pm.
