|Wearing beanies, crossing Earle Bridge as freshmen, the freshman-sophomore rope pull, the Goat's Head Rivalry... these are just a few of the many traditions experienced by students during their time at WPI.
In the spring, the graduating class will enjoy the festivities of Senior Week, Senior Convocation and finally, the march across Earle Bridge to Commencement. It is this sense of tradition that largely defines the undergraduate experience at WPI. The Centennial Walkway on the Quad was dedicated in 1991 and a new tradition was established. Students, alumni, faculty and staff can become part of WPI's history by having an engraved brick placed in the walkway. The names of those who walked the campus before them will inspire future generations.
It's not every day that you have a chance to attain immortality. The walkway is not just a great way for you to leave your mark on campus - it will also inspire all those who follow in your footsteps. Join the more than 17,000 alumni, students, faculty and staff who have already left their mark with a brick on the WPI Centennial Walkway! For $100.00, you can immortalize your presence at WPI with your very own brick placed in a special spot reserved specifically for your class.
Bricks will be installed annually. New orders must be received by February 15 to be installed by Commencement.
