4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are only there if you want to be a part of it. It is easy to avoid. There will be alcohol at parties during the weekend. I have never felt pressured into drinking. Campus police understands that this is a part of college so they are only there to make sure everyone is safe.

Overall Experience: Definitely look up your professor before you take a class. Most of them are good, but occasionally there will be a professor that isn't so great.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: WPI basically guarantees a job after you graduate! The project based curriculum definitely stands out to prospective employees.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe walking around WPI. It is very closed off from Worcester. Even then, people say Worcester isn't safe, which is probably true, but every city isn't completely safe. I am just as cautious walking around as I would be in any city.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is pretty average. You're able to pick your roommates. Sometimes you are in a forced triple but it isn't that bad. Strictness totally depends on your RA. Definitely would recommend finding a roommate on fb or something!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at WPI is awesome. It is the top 5 greek system in the US. Greek life does great things for the community and is seen as a very important and influential organization on campus. Definitely would recommmend looking into it!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am a varsity athlete and I love the support they provide for athletes. A good amount of people will attend games but it isn't the main focus. There are a lot of athletes on campus so it is fun to see people around who share the same interest as you!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: WPI is located in Worcester Massachusetts which is one of the largest cities in New England. Most of the danger on campus is not caused by students but rather the surroundings of the campus. It is rare but there are a few reports every year of students being mugged on campus and just outside of it. If you are on the main campus you have nothing to worry about.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every course here at WPI is constructed in a way that allows the student to learn in an effective manner. Every professor encourages questions and office hour visits if necessary. The professors are extremely passionate about everything they teach and many of them are WPI grads themselves. The first two year it is common to have 100 person lectures in each class but each class has smaller conference sections that meet in order to provide a more in depth lesson. As you continue here the classes get smaller and more specific to your area of concentration.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most people who decide to come to WPI absolutely love the school. The small, welcoming atmosphere is wonderful. Students tend to like the campus itself, too; it's beautiful, especially in the spring. Occasionally, people dislike the workload at the school, but many people would return to WPI if they had to do it all over again.

The community at WPI is the best feature of the school; it's what keeps people there, even though the work is tough. Joining a club or a sports team is a great way to make WPI feel like "home." Even though students can be 2,500 miles from home, they can feel like they have family on campus, through involvement in sports and clubs.
