Facebook cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is going on an East Coast college tour next week. Starting tomorrow, he will visit Carnegie Mellon, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
On Monday, Zuckerberg will visit Harvard and meet with a group of computer science students and Harvard President Drew Faust. Although Facebook already recruits at Harvard, this will be the first time Zuckerberg comes personally since he dropped out of the school to build the social networking giant.
Also on Monday, Zuckerberg plans to make a stop at MIT. The private research university says there will be a brief press availability with Zuckerberg at 12PM EST but wouldn't give details beyond that.
On Tuesday, Zuckerberg will visit Carnegie Mellon University where he will meet with faculty and students and give a talk to an invitation-only audience. This will also be Zuckerberg's first visit to Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh campus.
"We are very excited by the prospect of hosting a visit by Mark Zuckerberg," Randal E. Bryant, dean of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon, said in a statement. "Facebook has profoundly changed the nature of social interactions worldwide. Supporting these interactions requires massive information processing capabilities, for which Facebook has become a leader in advanced computing technology."
