January 2022

Happy New Year!

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and well. 

As we head into the new year, now is a great time to deepen your engagement with our alma mater—find an opportunity and get involved! There are plenty on offer in the days ahead, no matter where you are.

Join us for a virtual alumni town hall with President Leshin on January 20. President Leshin will talk with us about WPI’s new strategic plan, the work of WPI’s Mental Health and Well-being Task Force, the Beyond These Towers campaign, and more, and she will take your questions. Be sure to register in advance to get the Zoom information.

Then, as we look ahead to Alumni Weekend back on The Hill this May, those of you in your 10th, 25th, 40th, or 50th reunion years can enjoy a special ReZoomion on January 26. During this virtual event, reconnect with your classmates, catch a sneak peek of what’s in store for your reunion, and participate to win great prizes!

Expand your horizons beyond our campus with several other fascinating events. Among them, Tech Old Timers is hosting a virtual program on January 12 featuring WPI alumnus and 76th Commander of the USS Constitution John Bender '01, who will provide a live tour of the USS Constitution. 

Have a business idea? The Women of WPI are offering an interactive presentation on innovation and entrepreneurship, featuring Susan Loconto Penta '86, co-founder and managing partner at MIDIOR and an executive professor at Northeastern University, and WPI’s Beswick Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Rosanna Garcia, PhD.

As we embrace this new year, I hope that you find an opportunity of interest to you and join in!  We are looking forward to connecting with you. 
 
Best wishes,
Paula M. Delaney '75
