Video Highlights: Relive WPI's 2011 Commencement Ceremony

May 12, 2011

Experience the excitement and emotion of WPI's 143rd Commencement exercises through videos of the day's events. Whether you missed the ceremony or just want to see the big moments again, here are video highlights, including the presentation of the Chairman's Exemplary Faculty Prize and four honorary degrees, the Commencement Address by Rex Tillerson, the presentation of the Class of 2011 gift, the address by student speaker Christopher Noble, and the charge to the class by WPI President Dennis Berkey. Two timelapse videos, produced by Adam Epstein '05, senior assistant director of admissions, capture the ebb and flow of activity on Quadrangle on Commencement day. They were each compiled from nearly 4,000 still photographs taken between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. on May 14.

For complete details on the Commencement program, the full text of the honorary degree and Chairman's Prize citations, and the lists of graduates and student honor awards, see the online Commencement Program.
