Passionate – to me, this word defines a typical WPI student. Our students are passionate about everything they do, whether studying or participating in the ballroom dance club. That’s one of the major reasons I truly enjoy my work at WPI, particularly when working with undergraduate and graduate students and parents. As the Associate Dean, I find our students to be honest, well intentioned, and willing to help out others when needed.
