The Month in Photos: February 2020
We love chocolates and flowers as much as the next person, but know what’s even better? New schools, research showcases, and musical fruits and vegetables—they’re all here, and all on display through the lenses of our talented staff photographers. So, what do you say, WPI … be our valentine?
Talk about roaring ’20s—bands from WPI, Clark, and Holy Cross performed music from the 1920s and 2020s with a special concert at Alden Memorial.
You never really need a reason for cake, but this month, we had two: Gompei’s birthday (2/26) and #WPILoves, an event to thank donors and celebrate the invaluable impact they and their generosity have had at WPI.
Photographer, documentarian, and digital storyteller Taylor Freesolo Rees shared her knowledge and experiences (not to mention that incredibly cool middle name) with WPI during her residency at the Global Lab this month.
The latest in the “Critical Conversations” series touched upon all things climate change: what it looks like around the world, how it affects us, and what people and institutions—including WPI—are doing about it.
We celebrate engineers every day at WPI, but this month, we also celebrated National Engineers Week with myriad activities, including two events for elementary students, “Engineers on the Go” and “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day.”
Thousands of students attended this year’s Spring Career Fair, where hundreds of employers—many of whom are represented by WPI alumni—spent the afternoon scouting out their next top talent.
