Educational Opportunities & Webinars

From helping your student navigate the job search process and prepare for Academic Advising Day to recognizing signs of struggle in your student—WPI offers webinars throughout the year to help you better help your student.

Ways to Show You Care

A phone call, a text message with a goofy gif, a video of your family pet, or a handwritten card—sometimes, the simplest ways to let your student know you’re thinking of them are the most appreciated. Students also love mail, which is why we’ve put together instructions on how to send your student mail, as well as some low-cost ideas of items to include:


  • Homemade snacks to share with friends
  • Holiday-themed candy
  • Fun stickers
  • A gift card to an area restaurant (or even a mobile order at the on-campus Dunkin’ or Starbucks for them to pick up)
  • A handwritten note of support and encouragement
  • Supplies to make a brownie in a mug in the microwave
  • A new pair of fun patterned socks
  • A favorite cosmetic
  • Fidget toys
