It's been a while...

It’s been a while since I posted and yes things have been quite busy. On May 5th my wife and I welcomed a son, Sean Edward, to our family. Sean is our first child so there has been quite a learning curve for all of us:) WPI Class of 2030? We’ll see…I guess I better get him started on his numbers!!

Things continue to be busy in the admissions office. We are expecting are largest first year class in our history. Well over 800 first year students and another 40 to 50 transfer students will arrive on campus in late August. We are excited to welcome a great group of new students from all over the world. Only about 6 weeks to go!!

If you are one of our incoming students hopefully you’ve taken all the necessary steps in preparation for your enrollment at WPI. Have you mailed us a final high school transcript? (Official college transcript for our transfer candidates.) Have you set up your WPI e-mail address? If you are living on campus make sure you get your housing application in…the deadline was June 1st!! And of course your classes…Have you registered for your WPI classes? Let me know if you have questions about any of these items.

Our daily visitors have picked up considerably over the last few weeks. Once school ended for the summer we began to welcome many rising junior and seniors to campus for their first look at WPI. Just a reminder tours are Monday thru Friday at 9, 11,
1, and 3; information sessions are at 10 and 2.

Look forward to more frequent postings over the rest of the summer, as long as Sean allows it!!

Go Sox!!
