New Admissions Viewbook

Every three years comes a complete redesign of the admissions viewbook and several of the brochures we send out to our prospective students....well it's 2009 and it''s time to start the process again. The admissions staff will be working closely with our friends in marketing and communications at WPI for the next several months as we pull this project together. We will also be working with an outside design firm, FORGE Worldwide, on this exciting project.

So what do YOU want to see in the new viewbook? What sort of a cover gets you to open the publications that come in the mail? Do you want to see more information on student life or on academics inside? Post your thoughts and comments or send me an e-mail. (econnor@wpi.edu) Have you visited WPI and taken some great pictures? Let me know...maybe we'll use one!!

If you are an admitted student coming to this weekend's Winter Preview event come by a bit early....8:30ish and you can join a focus group to give your input on some early design concepts we are considering....maybe you'll even get a free WPI hat for helping out.

Stay tuned...I'll be posting some cover concepts to check out shortly.

Look forward to your ideas!!
