I knew WPI was the school for me after attending the Envision Overnight Program. The program gave me a small taste of what college life was all about. Before Envision I was afraid of having to start over, make new friends, a new environment and a completely new beginning. At the Envision program, I met current and other admitted students, including my future roommate and now best friend. The people were very welcoming and friendly and made me feel at home. By the end of the program, I felt as if I had known them for years.

When applying to college, WPI stood out to me for the unique project experiences it offers. This past fall semester I spent 7 weeks in Cape Town, South Africa through WPI’s Global Perspective Program. I was part of a group project that aimed to improve water, sanitation and hygiene provisions in informal settlements in the Cape Town area. It was an unforgettable and rewarding experience. I worked and formed relationships with community members, immersed myself in a new culture, and learned more about myself as an individual and team player. I could not have had the same experience at another university. I was lucky enough to work on a pressing global issue and gain a new cultural experience.

One thing I have a strong love for is the competitive side of bowling. Part of what drew me specifically to WPI was the fact there was a bowling alley on campus. Aside from the school's exceptional academic rigor, social life is something I was strongly seeking and I found it the day I participated in the freshman Olympics as well as in the Envision Overnight Program. The desire to bring change both to campus and the world is latent within the student body—among the resident advisor, community advisor and upperclassmen support, it was just an ideal decision to attend for an individual like me.
