About Our House – 155 Bay State Road
We live in a beautiful four-story brownstone house in Boston’s historic Back Bay. Accommodations include many big-screen TVs, gym equipment and foosball tables, a piano, a large kitchen, a bike rack and much more. We have a chef who prepares meals most days of the week.
Brothers remain extraordinarily active inside and outside the house. When not running fraternity affairs, brothers in recent years have held such positions as UA Secretary, Hillel president, vice president, and treasurer, as well as participating in several Institute-wide committees. Our intramural sports active teams include foosball, frisbee and basketball; while the fencing, sailing, and tennis teams have all benefitted from our athletic prowess. We also show great diversity academically, with brothers studying in more than a dozen different departments and excelling in each. In terms of GPA, we consistently rank amongst the top FSILGs and in 2013 we had the highest average GPA over the two semesters.
But we also know how to have a good time. We have frequent social events such as our bi-weekly Cider Night, home of our legendary banana bread; large events such as 007 parties, pirate parties, and highlighter parties; private date events such as Purim parties and semiannual formals; mixers with local sororities; brothers-only retreats; and spontaneous trips and study breaks whenever we need a break from the rigors of MIT.
Alpha Epsilon Pi is the only remaining national Jewish fraternity. The brothers of the Mu Tau (MIT) chapter are all proud of our heritage and practice to varying degrees, but we are a secular chapter. We have many close ties with Hillel and host occasional events for the MIT community like Shabbat dinners and the breaking of the fast after Yom Kippur. AEPi, in both the MIT chapter and the international fraternity, does not discriminate by religion or in any other way.
