Meet the Admissions Interns

The WPI Admissions Interns are a terrific group of undergraduate students you are likely to encounter during your visit to WPI. Admissions Interns are all former tour guides who have chosen to take their involvement with the Admissions Office to the next level. All Interns are selected among a highly competitive applicant pool, and they are well trained to answer questions about WPI. But because they are current students, they are some of the best individuals to give you a glimpse of what it's really like to be a WPI student! You may encounter Interns in our office hanging out, co-presenting one of our group information sessions, offering personal interviews, or just roaming around campus. Get to know the Interns below, and feel free to contact them with any questions you may have.
