I hope you’re all safe and healthy. As the summer progresses, planning at WPI is gearing up for the fall. The institution is planning for students to return to campus. We as alumni are planning for a week of virtual Homecoming events and other opportunities to support the community. Stay tuned later this summer for more information on how you can remain engaged or reconnect with us.
This summer the Alumni Association, in partnership with the Office of Lifetime Engagement, hosted our First Year Student Welcome Events virtually. We really appreciate the 45 alumni who volunteered to share their personal careers, how WPI prepared them, and their experiences as students. We also had 20 students who volunteered their time for the events this year. With hosting the events virtually, we were able to meet more than 250 students both domestically and internationally. Thank you to all who participated!
Thank you to all who supported last month’s #TechCares campaign. Your support will assist WPI in many ways this upcoming academic year.
This is a great time of year to join TechConnect, WPI’s networking platform for alumni. The site offers opportunities to connect with one another, search for jobs, and for folks to find/become a mentor. Are you a business owner? Share your business with alumni! Going through old photos and want to share them? Post them to a photo album on the site. There are many ways to connect and we hope you’ll take advantage of all the site has to offer.
Stay well and be safe.
