Student Life

Graduate students have always enriched our community with the diverse mix of life experiences, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds they bring to our campus. While the time you spend at WPI may be mainly devoted to your studies, we encourage you to contribute to our vibrant social life in whatever capacity you can. There are many opportunities for graduate students to get involved at WPI.
