Alumni Association Online Auction

Because attending college can be a financial burden for many, and because the Alumni Association believes in giving every boy, girl, man and woman the opportunity to obtain a WPI education if they desire one, the awards ceremony is being held in conjunction with the Alumni Associations' third annual online auction which raises money for student scholarships
