The Month in Photos: September 2023
From Homecoming traditions and exciting athletics wins to visits from royalty as well as family members from near and far, September gave the WPI community something (okay, many somethings) to cheer about. Take a peek behind the lenses of our staff photographers to see what we were up to last month.
The competition for this year’s annual rope pull was so fierce, it nearly swept us off our feet.
The WPI community had the chance to hear from His Majesty the Okyenhene King of Akyem Abuakwa, Ghana during a special speaker event as he shared his perspective on social and environmental problems and reflected on a decade of collaboration with WPI.
What’s better than some ice cream on a beautiful fall day? Nothing, as far as these professors are concerned—so they set up a liquid nitrogen ice cream stop as part of the latest Wellness Day activities.
Hundreds of employers—many WPI alumni among them—flocked to the Sports & Rec Center for one of the most popular events of the year, the Heebner Career Development Center’s Fall Career Fair.
The Hawai'i Cultural Association and Sigma Alpha Epsilon worked together to host Maui Strong, where they sold a variety of Hawaiian cuisine treats to raise money for Maui United Way's wildfire relief efforts.
This year’s Giving Day not only saw 1,300+ donations (one of the highest participation years yet) but more than a few pies as part of the Giving Day Pie-in-the-Face Challenge. Missy Kahan ’05 took a pie to the face for her cause of choice, the WPI field hockey team.
WPI students took a chance to stop and smell the roses (as well as a variety of other flowers) at a recent farmers market on campus.
A team of WPI researchers has created a prototype lizard-like soft robot that can creep into walls, ductwork, and pipes to perform inspections and three-dimensional mapping tasks that could be dangerous or impossible for humans.
