Celebrating Events Virtually

The WPI community continues to move forward through the COVID-19 crisis together. We know that our alumni, parents, and friends continue to support WPI no matter where they are located. We may not be able to gather together in person, but we are still able to celebrate WPI and everything that makes this community, and each person in it, special. 

Following local, state, and federal guidelines, we are continuing to shift many campus events to a virtual format—you’ll find those updates here. You’ll also find additional resources for providing assistance or finding out vital information. We want you to stay connected and updated.

Upcoming Activities for Alumni, Parents, and Friends

The Office of Lifetime Engagement for Alumni, Parents, and Friends—in collaboration with the Alumni Association, the Parents Association, the Graduates of the Last Decade, the Women of WPI, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, and many other partners—are preparing a slate of virtual events for alumni, parents and friends to take part in this summer and fall.

With virtual events ranging from socials to museum tours, alumni affinity group programs to faculty presentations, and even conferences and training sessions, the summer and fall virtual events schedule will have something for everyone.

Information on these events will be shared by email throughout the coming months, so please be sure that WPI has your most up-to-date contact information on file. If you aren't sure, let us know your contact information. If you have any questions or feedback, send us an email us at alumni-office@wpi.edu.
