They have run student tours of GLX. Every school in Boston and greater Boston with an AEC-related major was invited in the spring, and if everything goes according to plan, there will be another set of tours this upcoming spring. Universities just don't want to publish that kind of stuff anymore. They're more interested in posting about materials research breakthroughs and big money grants.T needs to get some students interested in monitoring and 'promoting" what is going on
When I was an undergrad at MIT in the early 70's I was doing some of that -- I got to meet with T people about plans and progress, few rides on work underway [e.g. very early ride on Quincy Line when it opened]
In exchange for the access we published some stuff as Student News and Features -- as official student MIT publications [paper of course]
Today -- it would be much easier with digital photos and social media --- could be a weekly student run [T monitored Blog on the T engineering and construction and re-construction, etc]
If I was the T -- I'd cultivate some students at a couple of U's during the school terms to do the Blog and then perhaps hire one or two in the Summer as interns to do some through documentation [e.g. construction of the GLX and its early operations] and presentation on web or social media -- good for the students careers and even better for the T as an impartial, connected source of a good story to tell
I don't think students would make an impact in the promotion to the general public of how well the T is doing. That news might circulate around schools' civil engineering departments for a week or two then settle. The T needs some big push toward the general public to show how its getting better.
