We’re marching through the rest of the year toward Commencement, but before we get there, let’s take a look back at the talent shows, walk-off wins, project work, and other events that made up last month on campus, all seen through the lens of our talented staff photographers.

No kidding—the WPI community’s talents aren’t only limited to goat puns, and the first annual WPI’s Go(a)t Talent show proved it.

Speaking of clubs, when we say we’ve got a club for everyone, we mean it, and newly accepted members of the Class of 2026 got a sneak peek at just a few of our 235+ clubs and organizations during the Accepted Student Day Activities Fair.

There’s nothing better than a walk-off win, and WPI Baseball knows that all too well—thanks to a two-out single from Dylan Connors ’22, the team defeated Worcester State in extra innings at the New England Baseball Complex.


Students helping carry food into El Buen Samaritano Food Program

We talk about WPI students making an impact in their own backyard, and members of an IQP team at the Worcester Community Project Center did just that, working with the city’s El Buen Samaritano Food Program to digitize their food tracking systems.

This calls for a celebration—Shaina Lazarus ’25 hit her first career home run this month, contributing to an 8-0 victory over Brandeis.
