September 2022

Hello friends!

It is such an exciting time of year, with campus again buzzing with the energy of our students. Though this year’s Bridge Crossing was a rainy affair, everyone’s spirits were as high as ever.  It was a joy for me to share in that experience with the Class of 2026 and to see some of your friendly faces as well!  Take a look at some photos here, and, enjoy this month’s throwback image, bringing us back to Bridge Crossing for the Class of 1969! 

I hope you are busy making preparations for your own return to the Hill for Homecoming from September 30 to October 2. In addition to our beloved traditions such as the rope pull and sporting events, we also have some new, exciting opportunities in store, including a show by comedian Peter Gross, a tour of our new Unity Hall, and a special award presentation honoring Phil Ryan ‘65. I hope to see you there!

The celebration continues on October 6 with Giving Day, WPI’s biggest day of giving back. Every year, it is so inspiring to see the entire WPI community come together in support of our Home on the Hill.  It seems each year the competition for challenge dollars keeps getting fiercer and more exciting to watch. Please be sure to turn out in support of your favorite WPI ambassador (or become one yourself!), or for a student group that made a difference during your years on the Hill. 

As always, thank you for all that you do for our alma mater. I hope to connect with you soon!

Warmly, 

Paula M. Delaney '75
