Weekly Campus Recap: March 16, 2021

March 16, 2021

This message was sent to WPI students.


Remember last spring break, when the pandemic kept everyone from returning to campus?? Let’s not go there again. Traveling over break and gathering in groups will spread the virus—it’s that simple. And each positive case pushes us closer to returning to Stay in Place restrictions. Let’s. Not. Go. There. It’s up to you. 

Don’t forget—you’re required to continue your routine testing during spring break in order to retain access to campus for D-Term. Check MyTechFlex for more information.

Calling all Superfans! Put on those new t-shirts from last week’s Funday Friday event and get ready to cheer on your favorite WPI teams! The varsity baseball, softball, men’s and women’s track and field, and men’s and women’s rowing teams are all gearing up for contests beginning March 20. Safety restrictions will be in place, of course, and we can’t yet have spectators, but we’ll be livestreaming so we can all watch and cheer! Visit the athletics website for more information.

Needing a finals study break? Don’t miss these events to take a breather from the books to see friends, and plan ahead for the upcoming spring break.

  • Pop on by the Rubin Campus Center today from 11am-1pm for some free fidget toys and a list of weekly events happening on campus in this week’s What’s Poppin series.
  • TGIF has a whole new Funday Friday meaning this week with the first day of spring break, and we’re here to celebrate with you. Relieve some stress and show off your WPI pride by painting your very own Gompei goat from 1-2:30pm at the tent outside the Campus Center (weather permitting). Best painted goat wins a $50 dunks card.  

Don’t miss student activities planned over spring break including Shrek Fest sponsored by SocComm which includes in-person activities. Check the TechSync events calendar for more details.



On the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, we want to remind all WPI leprechauns to #KeepWPIGreen—and we’re not talking about your outfits. Stay the course with TechFlex Green—don’t gather in groups, keep socially distanced, and wear a properly fitted face covering


Don't Let St. Patrick's Day BE THE LUCK OF THE VIRUS
