Hackers were in full form yesterday to celebrate the start of Campus Preview Weekend. Newly admitted students, their parents, and the MIT community were treated to quite a sight as they neared the MIT Media Lab. An upside-down lounge, game room, parlor, rec room—call it what you will—complete with pool table, lamp, and “wall” photo. Take a look.
