Stay Tuned for January '24 Dates
Inspired by Intersession, WinterSession gives WPI students, alumni, faculty, and staff the chance to participate in classes, workshops, and sessions on a variety of topics outside the classroom.
Years ago, WPI students had the opportunity to participate in Intersession, a week of rapid-fire classes, workshops, and sessions on myriad topics. Held on campus in January, WinterSession is a series of workshops and events that give students, alumni, faculty, and staff the chance to explore new topics, develop (or perfect) their skills, and foster new connections in a variety of environments, all through a non-hierarchical teaching style.
The History Behind WinterSession
The name has changed from its 1980s moniker "Intersession" to today's "WinterSession," but the idea is the same. Spending time learning just for the fun of it and exploring new activities refreshes the brain. For decades, this busy time before C-Term has been beloved by many WPI students.
