Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" sessions

Reddit AMA: April 18, 2019

"There are so many opportunities to get help at WPI. It's not easy, but the atmosphere does not feel competitive. Everyone is trying to get through it together. I have never had trouble getting the help I need especially with the different tutoring services, and the office hours of professors and teaching assistants."

Reddit AMA: January 15, 2019

"I chose WPI because I didn't have to give up my passions in exchange for my major. I get to participate in drama, theater and singing extracurricular activities, while still getting an ECE major. This really helps the work/life balance."

Current students at WPI hold AMAs 2-3 times a year. Check out the archives if you want to read more of their answers! 

Also, did you know you can ask current students – and faculty – a question directly? Fill out this form and a current student will get back to you.
