Grab some newly discounted Halloween candy and check out just a few examples of what we were up to over the last month, seen through the lenses of our talented staff photographers and videographers.

It may be getting dark at 4pm now, but WPI’s Hall of Luminaries is keeping things bright around here—the newest class of inductees was honored in a ceremony in Alden Memorial on Oct. 24.


 

The Worcester Art Museum opened its doors to art of a different sort when Alden Voices serenaded museum-goers as they perused pieces ranging from Rembrandt to the Renaissance.


 

Before the ground got too cold for breaking, we kicked off the construction of WPI’s newest academic and research facility, scheduled to open its doors in 2022.


 

Just close your eyes, tap your hooves together three times, and think to yourself, “There’s no place like Home(coming)…” and you’ll be there.


 

Looking for a reason to celebrate? Men’s soccer hasn’t lost a game since September, and recently claimed a share of its second NEWMAC regular season championship in the last three seasons.


 

Professional development conferences, expos, workshops, and more—they all blinded us with science (not to mention technology, engineering, and math) during STEM Week 2019.


 

We’ll just let the photo do the talking for this one.


 

A team of WPI researchers recently won a $3M grant from the National Science Foundation to study the future of human-robot interactions in the workplace.


 

As a Project Lead the Way University Partner, WPI had the honor of hosting this year’s PLTW Networking Conference. Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito kicked off the event.


 

Not only is the field hockey team regionally ranked, but its 17 wins this season are the most any team in the program has seen in a quarter-century.


 

Nearly 100 teams from high schools around New England gathered at WPI before dividing and conquering all afternoon as part of the 32nd annual Math Meet.


 

We all know there’s something special about WPI, and hundreds of prospective students and their families had the chance to experience everything we already know and love firsthand at the latest Fall Open House.


 

The annual STEM Faculty Launch was held at the beginning of the month, laying the groundwork to help grad students and postdoctoral researchers from around the world in seeking tenure-track positions in the STEM fields.
