Rules

Your goal is to fold the 3×3 puzzle (as outlined by red lines) into a 2×2 square that reads M-I-T down a diagonal. Also, the "I" in "MIT" should have CSAIL written down its length (in white letters). Finally, the folded 2×2 square should be completely blank elsewhere, on both sides, aside from the red and green construction lines. You may fold anywhere.

Printing Notes

The puzzle was designed for color printing, but it will work fine on a black-and-white printer.

The PDF file is the best combination of printing quality and small file size. The PostScript file also has ideal printing quality, but the file is larger. In either case, you need a suitable viewer. Alternatively, you can print one of the images. If you can print images scaled to fit, use 150dpi. Otherwise, use 72dpi.
