You’ve heard it time and again: what makes WPI special is the people, and the members of the Class of 2021 prove exactly that. Whether they’re going on to graduate school, a new job, military service, or something else entirely, the one thing they have in common is that they did it. They took a year full of uncertainty, constant changes, and upended plans, and faced it with grace, flexibility, and resilience. In celebration of them and their countless accomplishments, we asked a few members of the Class of 2021 (as well as some faculty and staff) to reflect on their time at WPI, reminisce on their favorite memories, reveal special moments they’re looking forward to on commencement day, and share how they plan to carry the friends they made and things they learned into their post-graduation lives.
Here’s to you, Class of 2021. Thanks for showing us what it means to be the GOAT.
