The Month in Photos: March 2022

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.


 

All aboard one of WPI’s newest clubs—check out the latest installment of WPI’s Got What to learn more about the Model Railroading Club.


 

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.


 

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.


 

WPI students, faculty, and staff have begun attending community input events to share their ideas on what they’re looking for in the university’s next president.


 

All systems green—the Career Development Center and Environmental & Sustainability Studies co-sponsored the Careers for Sustainable and Just Communities Fair, a networking event with local environmental businesses, departments, and groups, at the end of the month.


 

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


 

Eric Young, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, is leading WPI’s participation in the development of biomanufacturing job training for Worcester high schoolers as part of a federal effort to boost the biotechnology industry and workforce nationwide.


 

The High Power Rocketry Club putting some finishing touches on some rocket parts followed by a bike repair workshop held by the Cycling Club—all in a day’s work at the makerspace.


 

At the end of the month, the Great Minds/CoMPASS Scholars from the Classes of 2024 and 2025 had their first in-person meetup.


 

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for…spring has finally sprung at WPI!
