Happy Diploma Day, Class of 2020





It’s cool, isn’t it? Finally having your diploma—the last piece of the puzzle, a symbol of all your hard work over the years—in hand. We’re so proud: of all the determination and resilience it took to get to this point; of your monumental achievements and those sure to come; of you.

So, we’ll keep this short: Celebrate! You’ve more than earned it. Keep pushing boundaries, making change, bringing what only you can to the world.

Hats off and happy trailblazing—until we meet again.

Diploma Day

Celebrating the Class of 2020

Wait … you didn’t think we’d let you graduate without just a little more fanfare, did you? Members of the WPI community put together a few parting words not only as a sendoff, but a reminder that you, members of the Class of 2020, really are the GOAT—and no, the goat puns don’t stop after graduation (you’re welcome).

The Class of 2020 Mosaic

To top it all off, we’re excited to share one more keepsake with you: the completed Class of 2020 mosaic—a photo of one of the most iconic campus locales created from photos submitted by you and your friends.  A printed copy would look great next to your diploma, if we do say so ourselves.

It’s hard to explain, but there’s this small thrill that comes with scanning through programs and finding your name among hundreds of your fellow graduates. This digital program lists each member of WPI’s Class of 2020, so download a copy and start scanning away.
