May 2018

Dear Friends,

Congratulations to the class of 2018! It was a pleasure being part of your Commencement activities last weekend. Your achievements are impressive and I am excited to see what you will accomplish with your WPI education. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to you to the WPI Alumni Association. You are joining a proud and distinguished group of alumni who are changing the world through theory, practice, and impact. We are also pleased to continue the Email for Life pilot program with the class of 2018. Enjoy access to your WPI email account to stay in touch.

Alumni Weekend is less than two weeks away! I’m looking forward to the Alumni Association Meeting on Saturday morning and many of the other events throughout the weekend. I hope you can join us for some or all of the weekend. If you still need to register, click here. If you can’t come back to campus, be sure to follow WPI Alumni on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with what’s happening on the Hill throughout the weekend.

WPI’s fiscal year is coming to a close. Gifts from alumni make a difference in the lives of the students and the impact WPI’s faculty can have. Many alumni have already supported the WPI Fund this year through annual gifts, the Goat Nation Giving Challenge, the Alumni Couples Challenge, and Reunion giving. If you still need to make your gift, click here.

TouchTomorrow, a festival of science, technology, and robots, will take place at WPI on Saturday, June 9. I invite you to come to campus with your kids (young and old) to ignite a passion for STEM. Participate in hands-on experiments, hear from students about what they’re working on, learn about faculty research, and more.

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

Best,
Dave Wheeler ’93, ’04 MS
