Forget the 21st night of September—do you remember the rest of the month? If not (or even if you do, we’re not picky), take a glimpse through the lenses of our talented staff photographers and videographers—plus a few friends—to check out what the WPI community was up to this month.

Brazilian grafiteira and performance artist Panmela Castro put the “art” in “Arts & Sciences Week” with a stunning mural of Abby Kelley Foster in Salisbury Labs. Many thanks students from The Global Lab for being on-scene with cameras to capture this incredible creation from start to finish.


Director of the Housing & Residential Experience Center Casey Wall does it all, and we’re not the only ones who know it—she was recently named one of Worcester Business Journal’s 40 Under 40.


In the first-ever A-Term ROTC commissioning ceremony, five cadets became second lieutenants in the United States Army.


WPI was chosen to lead Team Oculus in designing, building, and operating a net-zero-energy house in Morocco as part of the international Solar Decathlon AFRICA competition, and all we’ve got to say is: “Property Brothers who?”


Air Force ROTC Detachment 340 honored members of our nation’s armed forces who were prisoners of war, as well as those missing in action, for National POW/MIA Recognition Day on Sept. 20.


In its biggest turnout ever, 3,000+ students attended this year’s Fall Career Fair, where they met with hundreds of employers—as well as 278 WPI alumni who returned to campus as employer representatives.


Colleen Mullins ’20 was all smiles during a NEWMAC match at Babson. She must’ve known something was brewing, because later that week, the team defeated Springfield College for the first time since 2012 (and the second time in program history).


WPI researchers received a three-year, $25 million award from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory to further develop a 3D printing technique that could be used to repair vehicles and other technology out on the battlefield.


Sponsored by the Departments of Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Technology Commercialization, the monthly Startup Speaker Series allows the WPI community to learn about different aspects of startup culture.

In addition to artist presentations and other activities, graduate students and faculty members hosted lightning talks on a wide variety of topics during this year's Arts & Sciences Week.


Thousands of students spent just a few days back on campus before attending the 2019 Global Fair and starting to plan the next time they’ll leave the campus.
