WPI to Host Columbus Day Open House for High School Students

The best way to get a feel for WPI is to come visit us! The WPI Admissions Office will host an open house for high school students on Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 12, 2009.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute's Office of Admissions offers several ways for high school students and their families to learn more about the university and see the beautiful campus. One way is through Open House events, where high school students can get a comprehensive look at campus, including academics, student life, athletics, admissions, and financial aid.  Through this experience, prospective students also have the opportunity to ask questions of staff, faculty and students.  The next Open House will be held on Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The agenda for our October Open House is available. Please note that sessions and locations may change before the event, and prospective students should obtain a printed copy of the agenda upon their arrival.

Check-in for the Open House is at Harrington Auditorium.

Please pre-register for your Open House visit. If you are unable to attend one of the Open Houses, you may consider WPI's other opportunities to visit.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
