The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a private university in Cambridge, MA. After a brief period of quizbowl success in the late 2000s (earning 2nd at 2008 ACF Regionals and 8th at the 2008 ACF Nationals) and a brief death thereafter, the club has revived and now attends many tournaments a year.


In the past, MIT hosted Beaver Bonspiel (which in 2008 was a mirror of Stanford's Cardinal Classic), and an annual IS set high school tournament, the MIT Beaver Academic Tournament. More recently, the club has branched out in its mirrors of various college tournaments, and revived MITBAT in 2012 with the addition of a new novice-friendly tournament for high schools in the Boston area, the MIT Fall Tournament.

Apparently, the 2008 CBI RCT for the Northeast ("Region 1") was hosted at MIT, though this happened without the club's knowledge. Noted Rhode Island powerhouse Providence College finished first.
