Interim President Ryan ’65 Welcomes Back Students! Learn more...
Dear WPI Community,
Good morning, WPI Community,
I am delighted to welcome you back for the start of A-term, for those of you who are returning, and a hearty 'Congratulations!’ to the students, faculty and staff you who are new to our community. I wish that I could be with you in person today, to feel the energy on campus, however I look forward to meeting many of you just after the Labor Day holiday, when I am back on campus.
This is an exciting start at WPI, both academically and physically: for instance, we have record numbers of undergraduate and graduate students joining us, and many new faculty members who are stars in their fields. In terms of our campus, the new residence hall at Faraday Street is up and running, we have a beautiful new Quadrangle, and the entrance to Morgan Hall has been renovated into a great new patio area.
There is a lot to celebrate, and even more to look forward to in the year ahead.
On behalf of the administration and trustees, you have our best wishes for a very successful, happy, and healthy A-term, 2013.
Phil Ryan ’65
