WPI asks guests to please keep in mind that Homecoming is a family-friendly event. Consistent with the policies surrounding all of WPI’s large-scale events, we ask that all visitors be respectful of our campus property and policies, with specific notice that WPI is a smoke-free campus and that random bag and cooler searches will occur for public safety. Additionally, a reminder that no alcohol may be brought onto campus – bar stations will be available on the Quad and in the Sports and Recreation Center for alcohol purchases.
