April was its typical blur of activity on the WPI campus, with everything from Project Presentation Day to QuadFest to a visit from Governor Baker. But before we move on to next month's festivities, let’s take a look back at what our community has been up to this month, courtesy of our talented staff photographers and videographers.
The Month in Photos: April 2019
Organized by Colleges Against Cancer (which was recognized as Organization of the Year at this year's Student Recognition Awards Ceremony), over 1,100 members of the WPI community rallied together to raise over $146,000 at this year’s Relay for Life. In just 12 years, WPI's Colleges Against Cancer organization has raised just over $1 million dollars––including this year's efforts––for the American Cancer Society.
Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker recently visited WPI to announce that PracticePoint has been named as the state's first “sandbox” in a new grant program to help healthcare technology start-ups access tech development space.
We always try to keep campus as beautiful as possible, but sometimes nature just makes our job easy.
Standout WPI students were honored at the Student Recognition Awards Ceremony for their achievements in and out of the classroom.
The words flowed at the annual Women Authors Evening, which featured a panel including Hank Philippi Ryan, Carrie Johnson, Margot Livesey, and Anita Diamant (who had stopped by a travel writing class earlier in the day to workshop student essays).
Water balloons to watermelons, boat races to Big Shows—man, the goats are nonstop. Take a look back at what was one fantastic year.
