Notes from Higgins House

Scenes from Homecoming 2004 Mark your calendar for Homecoming 2005, Sept. 30-Oct. 1.

From Boston to Silicon Valley, WPI alumni are gathering to socialize, network, and talk about new ways to further the goals of the university.

At Homecoming 2004, President Dennis Berkey shared his vision for WPI’s future direction. The Class Boards of Directors met to assess the effectiveness of the present structure and discuss ways to enhance communication between the alumni and the university. Regional networks and alumni clubs were also on the agenda, with discussion focusing on how they might function and be best supported by alumni. Detailed feedback on these issues is available online at the Alumni Association Web site ( or from the Office of Alumni Relations.

Off-campus alumni events provide opportunities for graduates outside of New England to reconnect with their alma mater and learn about new university initiatives. This fall, receptions in New York City and Washington, D.C., brought alumni into direct contact with WPI students and staff. At these gatherings, attendees heard firsthand about project center activities on Wall Street and in the nation’s capital.

While spring may seem a long way off, please take a minute to mark your calendars for Reunion Weekend, June 9–12, 2005. This event offers a great opportunity to reacquaint yourself with the changing campus, meet with classmates, relive your college experiences, and just have fun. If you have any questions about Alumni Association activities or want to get involved as a volunteer, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 508-831-5600.
