Wake up and head to my early morning classes
Maggie’s favorite thing about WPI is that it’s such a welcoming community full of different opportunities, something she learned and contributed to firsthand after signing up for Boffer Games, a PE class similar to live-action roleplaying (or LARPing) that’s run by the Society for Medieval Arts & Sciences. As she worked her way up from treasurer to president of the club, she’s been able to “actively change the conversations and stereotypes around LARPing to help create a more open-minded WPI community.”
When she’s not organizing battle games on the Quad or teaching boffer basics to new students, Maggie has no shortage of things to do. In addition to her club positions, she works at the front desk in the Career Development Center, researches how to grow single crystals of metal sulfides in Professor Grimm’s Grimmgroup lab, and volunteers as part of the SophoMORE Success Program in the Office of Academic Advising.
After graduation, Maggie plans to work in her chosen industry and experience life in a different part of the United States. She’s not exactly sure where her future will take her, but she’s excited for the new adventures to come.

Depending on the day, I’ll either head to work at the Career Development Center, or complete some more research in Professor Grimm’s lab.
I attend both general body and executive meetings for the organizations I’m part of.
I finish up my homework and hang out with my friends for the night.
