    What can you expect:

    The information session is a live zoom presentation done by one of our Admissions Counselors and a current WPI Student.  These sessions run for 45 minutes. 

    The campus tour is also alive zoom presentation done by our Crimson Key student tour guides.  This is a great opportunity to hear a student's perspective about various areas around campus and see what makes WPI special. These tours run for 45 minutes.
