  • Build connections with fellow Class of 2028 peers, forging friendships that will enhance your WPI experience. 

    Parents and Families Will:  

  • Connect with various campus resources that will be there to support your student throughout their time at WPI.  
  • Gain insights into the WPI curriculum, allowing you to understand and support your student’s academic journey.
