Your Perspective

If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to build WPI.  Our university is shaped by students and faculty, alumni and parents, mentors and advisors, and programs and opportunities that make our environment unique, welcoming, and innovative.  Figuring out if WPI is the right college for you is as important as WPI determining which students will thrive in our community.  Whether you are a prospective student, parent, or college counselor, we encourage you to look at WPI from all sides and perspectives.

Different Perspectives 


The WPI community benefits immeasurably from diversity. Life at WPI is greatly enhanced by students of color, students of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and students from cities, towns, and villages all over the globe. Our students bring their own unique perspective to WPI, which is what makes our campus the vibrant, active place it is.
