Our Virtual Intersession opportunities are great ways to engage with the WPI community and provide you with inspiration, enrichment, and entertainment. Here you can find tips and tricks for personal wellness, ideas for keeping your kids busy, career advice, inspirational stories about how the WPI community is participating in the fight against COVID-19, and much more.
Traditions are what draw us in and pull us back. They are cherished and revered. They give us chills and create wonderful memories of times spent on campus. Upon them, many great things can be built. They create the tie that binds the entire WPI community—the students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
As a WPI graduate, you can be proud to count yourself among this illustrious group of innovative problem solvers who are always breaking new ground, seeking better solutions, and creating positive change in the world.
You are part of a worldwide network of more than 38,000 alumni who live in more than 100 countries and are working in diverse fields and professions.
Life’s a journey and we’ve all traveled different roads: fun adventures completed, milestones reached, career goals achieved. Share your recent news with fellow WPI alumni by sending a class note (and photo, if possible) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your news may appear in the next issue of the WPI Journal!
