Crimson Crew encompasses all alumni volunteers who take pride in WPI through their involvement and support of the institution. Whether near or far, there is an opportunity for all of our alumni to volunteer.
Crimson Crew opportunities include the following and many more.
Sponsor a Student Project
By sponsoring a project, your company engages the fresh perspective of a dedicated student team - employing the most recent, state-of-the-art techniques, practices and theories - guided by top-notch faculty, to tackle pressing business challenges. Our records show that ideas presented by WPI students translate into tangible solutions for project sponsors, and returns on investment well exceed initial costs. In addition, projects can be a unique opportunity to screen for future talent.

Alumni & Admissions Behind the Scenes
Ask a Grad: Respond to questions in a timely manner from prospective students and families. Frequency of contact may vary throughout the year.
Congratulate Newly Accepted Students: Alumni will send congratulatory emails to early-accepted students during the month of January. Connect with 10-30 accepted students from your hometown, students with similar academic interests, or more!
Accepted Student Days: Volunteer on campus to welcome and interact with WPI's accepted students and family members in March and April. Help families find their way around campus and mingle to share your experience with accepted students and families.
Alumni Admissions in Your Community
Regional Admissions: Alumni with prior Admissions experience, or experience representing WPI, will coordinate with Admissions to cover college fairs or recruitment events within their respective geographic region. Alumni may also be asked to consider visiting local high schools and speak on behalf of WPI.
Social Media Admissions Ambassadors: Support Admissions by sharing and posting positive messages about WPI.
Refer a Student: Admissions values the input of all WPI community members as they take on the exciting challenge of selecting the incoming class. In addition to referring students to WPI, alumni are welcome to provide letters or emails of endorsements for candidates. We also encourage alumni to share with Admissions more information on a student you feel might make a great addition to our campus.
Career Development Center Opportunities
Alumni volunteers working with the Career Development Center encourage their companies to recruit at WPI, hire WPI students for co-ops or internships, offer informational interviews to WPI students, and provide feedback to WPI students on their resumes. If you're interested in being a volunteer with the CDC let us know!
