We invite you to campus to enjoy the feel of fall at Family Weekend from September 22-24, 2017. Spend time with your student while catching a soccer game on Alumni Field, grabbing something to eat at The Goat’s Head Restaurant, seeing a theatre production, relaxing to the music of the WPI Jazz Band, learning something new at the Family College sessions, or enjoying family activities. There is something to delight everyone.

Can our family attend ticketed events if we did not pre-order them? 

Unfortunately, all ticketed events required advanced registration. At times there may be tickets available at the door for some events; Check at the Family Weekend registration table for details. Most events throughout the weekend, however, are unticketed and do not require any advance arrangements.
