WPI Open House

WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute), my alma mater (Aerospace Engineering, 1992), is having an open house for high school students next Monday, Columbus Day. WPI is a great school and has been recognized for its innovative programs and curriculum. They are mainly a science, math, engineering, and technology university, but also have humanities majors. The WPI Plan is a project based curriculum that the university has used for decades, and includes 3 major projects and a unique class schedule. Here is another article that I wrote about it.

I always recommend WPI to students looking at science, math, engineering, or technology fields. The school is small, but has excellent facilities and resources, allowing students to really explore their chosen field of study.

Here is the announcement:

WPI to Host Columbus Day Open House for High School Students

Worcester Polytechnic Institute's Office of Admissions offers several ways for high school students and their families to learn more about the university and see the beautiful campus. One way is through Open House events, where high school students can get a comprehensive look at campus, including academics, student life, athletics, admissions, and financial aid. Through this experience, prospective students also have the opportunity to ask questions of staff, faculty and students. The next Open House will be held on Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The agenda for our October Open House is available. Please note that sessions and locations may change before the event, and prospective students should obtain a printed copy of the agenda upon their arrival.

Check-in for the Open House is at Harrington Auditorium.

Please pre-register for your Open House visit. If you are unable to attend one of the Open Houses, you may consider WPI's other opportunities to visit.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
