West Village Design Feedback
The West Village Committees (formerly FSILG Village) recently held a Student Design Workshop for initial brainstorming. We'd love to get feedback from more students!

For each of the four sections (Site Design, Building Design, Programmatic Elements, Management and Operations), please rate which of attributes are important to MIT/FSILG community, your chapter, and you. These elements were generated from the initial brainstorming session on November 6, and all elements are open to discussion and feedback.

If you have any questions or more detailed feedback, please feel free to email fsilg-village-steering-group@mit.edu.
