Wake up and get ready to start the day.
Salvatore Lombardo '21
Salvatore credits WPI with giving him the chance to discover what he truly enjoys. When an injury stopped him from playing baseball after his first year, he channeled his energy into coaching. “The ability to give back to the community through coaching baseball has been one of the most fulfilling things in my life,” he says.
Through project work, he’s also been able to determine his strengths and weaknesses when working with groups, something he knows will prove invaluable in the workforce. Being in a dynamic academic environment has kept him motivated, helping him succeed in his coursework—he’s made the dean’s list for two terms.
His advice to potential WPI students? Don’t be afraid to ask for help and talk with your professors. His faculty mentor, Joseph Duffy, has introduced him to alumni in his field, discussed his options for summer opportunities and more as he works toward his goal of earning a master’s in management and entering a rotational program at a biopharmaceutical company.
