Frontiers College Fair: Information for Colleges
The college fair will be primarily for participants of Frontiers, WPI’s selective, residential summer program for high school students. Each summer, Frontiers brings over 200 rising juniors and seniors to the WPI campus from across the U.S. and around the world. These participants have the opportunity to experience college life and learn from WPI faculty in areas of science, technology, engineering, math, and the humanities. In addition to the Frontiers participants, members of the WPI Community and students from the Massachusetts Academy of Math & Science will be invited to attend.
