Welcome to the busiest week of the year

It's spring vacation week for high schools in Massachusetts, bring on the visitors!!

In case you were unaware Patriot’s Day was celebrated in Massachusetts today and as always the Boston Marathon was run. Now I don’t think I need to explain the marathon, but just in case you are not familiar with Patriot’s Day it is the day that marks Paul Revere’s famous ride to Lexington and Concord to warn of the British advances to seize military supplies. While Revere did warn many people along his ride, few people remember he was actually captured and his fellow rider William Dawes was actually the one to escape and make it all the way to Concord. Just a bit of historical trivia:)

If you are thinking of visiting this week we’ll be happy to see you. Tours are at 9, 11, 1 and 3 and the general information sessions are at 10 and 2. This is typically our busiest week of the year as we expect many admitted students taking a last look at WPI, as well as sophomores and juniors just starting their search. No need to make an appointment just check in at the Bartlett Center and we’ll take it from there!!

See you at WPI!!
