February 2018

Dear WPI friends,

The days are finally getting longer and its beginning to feel a bit more like spring in New England. I’m sure many of you are looking forward to Alumni Weekend. It’s a reunion year for me and I look forward to reconnecting with friends from the class of 1993. Check out the schedule to see what’s happening. Registration is open and you can sign up online.

Before we jump ahead to June, there are a few other important alumni events. The Women of WPI is hosting its annual Fireside Chat and Reception on March 8 featuring WPI assistant professor Patricia Stapleton speaking on behalf of Women Also Know Stuff. The Women’s Impact Network will host its “Elevating Women in STEM” grant announcement event on Saturday, April 28. These two events are great opportunities to connect with alumni and learn more about challenges in STEM.

This year the annual Community Service Day will be held on Saturday, April 21. I invite you to join us in completing beautification projects surrounding campus. You can also sign up to be a “team leader”. I was a team leader last year and really appreciated working with students and alumni throughout the day.

If you have any feedback or ideas, feel free to reach out to me.

My best,
Dave Wheeler '93, '04 MS
