Student Activities

The Spirit of the Giving Tree has returned for the 2022 year to WPI.  A beloved annual tradition, faculty, students and staff alike can adopt a child or mother with child for the winter holiday season.

The annual program, which has run for over countless years, is back again.  WPI community members can stop by the Student Activities Office between 8:30am and 4:30pm weekdays between November 14 and December 7 to adopt and sponsor a child for the holidays. The Student Activities Office is located on the top (third) floor of the Rubin Campus Center. When stopping by, adopters will receive a profile sheet to learn about the child they are adopting for the holidays and directions.  Sheets must be picked up in person.  

All gifts can be dropped off at the Campus Center Stage on December 8th between 9am-3pm.
