Mens et Manus MIT Seal

MIT's motto is "Mens et Manus," which translates from the Latin to "Mind and Hand." This motto reflects the educational ideals of MIT's founders who were promoting, above all, education for practical application.

"Mens et Manus" appears on the Institute's official seal, along with a scholar and a laborer who signify a union of knowledge and the mechanical arts, as do the volumes "Science and Arts" that rest on the pedestal in the center of the seal.

Quote of the moment
On the Single Woman: The pretty young woman living alone, must literally follow Cinderella's habits. The magpie never leaves her window sill and the jackal sits on the doormat, and the news of her every going out and coming in, of every one whom she receives, when they come, how long they stay and at what hour they go, is spread broadcast.
~ Emily Post, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home, Chap. XIX¶26, 1922 ~
