New Student Orientation (Undergraduate)

Sunday, August 19, 2018 to Wednesday, August 22, 2018

WPI Welcomes the Class of 2022! Academic Affairs, Residential Services and Student Activities staff, along with WPI students, will welcome the Class of 2022 as they arrive and move-in on campus on Sunday, August 19. In the days to follow leading up to the first day of classes, our incoming first-year students will enjoy a jam-packed orientation schedule where they will have the opportunity to acclimate to campus and ease into college life. They’ll get to know their roommates and the campus, our history and traditions, as well as learn about academic, social, and co-curricular life here at WPI.  They’ll meet upperclassmen, faculty, and staff who will welcome them and help them become members of the WPI community.
