I joined The Tech when I was a freshman. Looking back, sometimes I'm surprised how much time I devoted to it, especially in my first few years at MIT. I eventually became Editor in Chief for the spring semester of 1997. That was a pretty arduous semester, but you know what Calvin's dad would say -- It builds character. The Tech was a big part of my MIT experience, and I learned a lot, even if it wasn't always easy.
