Time Flies

Wow I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since my last post. April is a traditionally busy month in the admissions world and things typically quiet down a bit in May...but not this year!!

While the office was fairly quiet in May, my family and I moved at the end of the month. We'd been in the same place for 8 years and it is amazing how much stuff one can gather it 8 years!!

So what else happened at WPI since my last post? Here's a top ten list of sorts....in no particular order:)

We held two very popular Closer Look Programs for Admitted Students

Our 2010 Commencement which included Curt Schilling as the Commencement Speaker

The ground breaking for WPI's new Sports and Recreation Center

The release of WPI's new Admissions Video...look for it on the web soon!!

The 2010 Reunion at WPI...taking place this weekend

The WPI academic plan celebrates its 40th year!

New project sites in Japan and Santa Fe, NM offered for the 2010/11 academic year

We welcomed a group of Russian university officials to campus interested in learning more about the unique nature of WPI's programs

WPI won the Worcester Cup for the second straight year. It recognizes the college athletic program in Worcester with the highest winning percentage over the entire year.

The May 1st enrollment deadline passed and we saw over 900 students choose to enroll at WPI as part of the Class of 2014!! (We expect an incoming class in the upper 800s come August.)

That's all for now....I promise to be back soon!!
