Julie Chapman
Director, Transfer Admissions & Recruitment Partnerships, Admissions & Aid

Pronouns: She/Her/HersWhat is your favorite spot on WPI's campus?My favorite spot on campus is WPI's Higgins House--especially the formal gardens and meditation pond. The Tudor-style home itself, modeled by its original owner after English castles, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The grounds and gardens make you feel like you stepped into a time warp to the old English countryside. It's a quiet, beautiful spot to take a peaceful moment. Responsibilities: Massachusetts* and transfer students
