As I look back and reflect on the last two months of activity at WPI, I’m inspired and proud to be a member of this community. In September we had opportunities to learn, engage, reconnect with friends, and celebrate those who’ve made an impact on our experiences during the week-long global Homecoming events. If you missed any of the events, check out the recordings here.
On October 1, over 900 alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends participated in Giving Day. Together, we raised over $375,000 to support the next generation of STEM leaders. I want to give a special shout-out to the alumni, parents, students, and friends who served as Giving Day Ambassadors. Ambassadors volunteered to do personal outreach to their friends and family about Giving Day and brought in over 150 gifts and nearly $28,000.
Looking ahead to the coming weeks, there are still more opportunities for you to connect with alumni.

While events are a great way to connect with one another and learn, there are still more ways to engage with WPI and meet alumni. Check out TechConnect, your exclusive portal for all things WPI (including The Herd articles). Join the Crimson Crew, our volunteer group. Follow WPI Alumni on Facebook and Twitter.
Stay well and be safe.
