Each spring, some 700 men and women, bedecked in black robes and mortarboards, march across Earle Bridge to the Quadrangle, where they receive their hard-earned degrees from WPI's president. It is a time for looking forward to lives and careers that wait just beyond the horizon, and to cherish the memories of accomplishments, friendships and events that have come before.
WPI Commencement will be held outdoors on the Quad, rain or shine.
The annual commencement ceremony is an important milestone in the lives of our students and their families, and WPI works hard to assure that this will be an enjoyable event. That is why we do all we can to assure the safety and welfare of our guests. Toward that end, our security personnel will be conducting random checks of camera bags, backpacks, and other large items on Commencement day. We appreciate your understanding as we undertake this security measure, which we believe will help make May 11 a pleasant and memorable day for all.
