Enterprising students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have done it again, and are now selling pre-orders for the 2nd Women of the East Side Calendar! 40 new pages of glossy, girly glory to benefit the James E. Roberts Memorial Scholarship Fund. Go check them out!
Yo and welcome! This is where you go to get any and all information related to the Women of the East Side Calendar. The bar on top should help you navigate, but we really only have two pages: this and an FAQ. A testimonials and statistics page will be coming soon.
This is a thinly veiled excuse to ogle hot engineering chicks. More
importantly, it's a fundraising effort for the James E. Roberts
Memorial Scholarship Fund (it's an endowed scholarship in memory of
The Women of the East Side Calendar is a 17-month full-color calendar
populated with attractive female MIT students and alumni who hail from
dorms on the East Side of campus. No, really! True story. We spent 5
months taking 2,307 photos of 39 irrefutably hot models; 141 photos
survived THE CULLING and 67 ended up in our 40-page calendar. We've
printed up 500 and are selling them for $12 at EAsT camPUS Front Desk
(or $12.50 + S/H through this website). All profits go to the Big
YOU CAN BUY THE ORIGINAL EAST SIDE CALENDAR WITH THE NEW EDITION (and they'll actually ship it to you!), SURF OVER FOR MORE DETAILS
To maximize profitability (and because we had the photos to support it) the calendar spans 17 months: February 2006 through June 2007 with a catch-all page that will take you through to December 2007. For those of you playing at home; 17 months + one catch-all spread + credits + cover = 40 pages. The calendars are 8.5x11 folded (11x17 when opened) and are printed in full-color on high-end glossy paper. Also, the calendars are in a non-standard format: any given week starts on Monday, ends on Sunday and is annotated with MIT holidays and deadlines in addition to national and religious holidays.
Again, the calendar is good through all of 2007. That means you can cut Miss February down from the wall and keep her in the Special Place while Miss March reminds you when Add Date is and Miss May tells you all about Steer Roast.
Now, stop and imagine 40 pages of hot geek girls. Skeptical? We've got some preview images and up in our FAQ for people like you!
You can order the original Women of the East Side Calendar with Women of the East Side Calendar v2.0.
James E. Roberts Sr., known as "Big Jimmy," was a nightwatchman at the MIT dormitories Senior House and East Campus for many years until he passed away suddenly in January of 2005. He was a friend and hero to hundreds of MIT students. Frankly, we loved the man. There's a page dedicated to him here.
Jimmy was known for being the embodiment of propriety around the ladies (meaning that when the crazy nekkid chicks were running around on hall, Jimmy would run the other way). But we're doing this in his memory because he was the type to appreciate the sentiment. The original calendar raised over $6000 for Big Jimmy.
If you want an original Women of the East Side Calendar, you have two options. First, you can donate to the Big Jimmy Fund and we'll send you a calendar for donations over $50. Alternately, you can go check out the NEW Women of the East Side Calendar, and they'll be offering a package deal for both editions of the calendar (until stocks run out). We have a very limited number of the original calendar, so make sure to follow up if you want the complete set.
We're more than happy to take your money and give it to the Big Jimmy Fund directly. Donate $5 or $10 or $100 and 97% will go to the Fund (thanks to PayPal's 3% cut). But! If you donate any amount over $50, we'll send you a gratis calendar (so long as you give us your shipping information). Click the button and PayPal will do the rest. You can also be a statistic and donate through the MIT Alumni Association; you won't get a calendar, but you'll still feel good about yourself in the morning. To date, more than $2,000 of our proceeds have been from outright donations. If I were prone to swearing, I'd say that you people fucking rule.
Right. We are in no way affiliated with the Corporation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Yes, we're all from MIT. Yes, those girls are real MIT engineers. Yes, the photos were taken on MIT's campus. But that's where it ends; we can't help who we are, and if the Institute knew we were getting naked for charity, they probably wouldn't like it. But you will. Oh, yes, you will.
If you were one of the 5 people to order calendars through this website after we stopped shipping, but before we took down the PayPal link, we will be sending your calendar to you shortly.
