WPIAA President's Corner

Current President: Rachel Delisle '96, '06 MBA

Dear Alumni:

I hope you are enjoying the summer and the time it often affords us to vacation and recharge a bit. Of course, being the overachievers we are at WPI, things haven’t slowed down a bit.

The preparations for the Class of 2020 to arrive on campus as freshmen in August are well underway. Very special thanks go out to the alumni and parents who have opened their homes to host 21 barbecues to welcome our newest members to the WPI community. I am so glad that the Alumni Association is a part of these welcome events that have become such an important part of our traditions.

Homecoming 2016 will be here before we know it. While you can come home to WPI at any time, please come visit us during this special time, Oct. 7 and 8. Enjoy all the traditions and some fun new things, too. Let’s see if we can beat our Alumni Weekend attendance—it was the biggest in recent memory with more than 900 attendees.

The plans are coming together nicely for the Women of WPI’s second-annual conference. This unique opportunity to connect and discuss relevant topics with other WPI women will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12. Save the date and stay tuned for more details.

I hope to connect with you at one of these alumni events. In the meantime, if you have feedback or ideas you want to share, feel free to reach out to me at rmdelisle@alum.wpi.edu.

All the Best,


Rachel Delisle ’96, ’06 MBA
