We may be in D-Term (hope yours is off to a good start!), but we’re also looking forward to the fall. Check out President Leshin’s message for a refresher on Fall 2021 campus plans, and don’t forget to stop by the virtual Student Town Hall tomorrow, March 31 at 12:00pm to learn more about where we’re heading regarding our COVID-19 response and the role of CERT (Coronavirus Emergency Response Team). Mark your calendar and connect via Zoom or Youtube for meeting access.

Important academic updates:

  • Don’t forget—dates for course registration and the Fall 2021 schedule have changed; refer to the announcement for details.
  • Registration for IQPs and MQPs in D-Term and beyond will use eProjects 2.0. All in-process and processed D- and E-Term project registrations will be migrated from the old system. Learn more.

Looking for a break?

  • The What’s Poppin’ series is back—stop by the campus center today between 11am and 1pm for a free fidget toy and a list of weekly campus events.
  • Grab your student ID and head to the campus center information desk to reserve lawn games like ladderball, cornhole, and bocce ball for you and your friends.
  • Grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate from 1-2:30pm outside the campus center as part of the Funday Friday series this Friday, April 2, courtesy of the International House staff.
  • Fire tables are coming to campus! They’ll be available from 6:30-10:30pm on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in several locations across campus; please follow the safety guidelines that will be posted nearby, and enjoy, with a special thanks to SGA for their support.
  • Turn it up—Marching and Pep Band are joined by some WPI alumni for their cover of “The Impression That I Get.



  • We get it; we’ve had enough of COVID too, but we’re not out of the woods yet. So absolutely get out there and enjoy the nice weather, just be sure to do so safely. Keep your distance, wear your face covering, #ProtectTheHerd.

As vaccines become more readily available, you’re strongly encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as you’re eligible at any of the state’s public vaccination sites. Last week’s announcement has details on vaccine availability, eligibility, and more.
