With less than a week before the Class of 2015 arrives at WPI, I want to take the opportunity to give you an update about the students who have written on this blog. With each year brings changes, and this year is no exception. Three of our students graduated in May and of course won’t be returning to campus this week. It’s always a little bit of a shock when we have gotten to know students so well over the past several years only to one year have them not return. That’s the nature of working at a college though, and we are fortunate to have gotten to know them and maintain that relationship even after they are gone. In case you forgot:
- Kristen has moved to Milwaukee, WI to join the Information Management Leadership Program at General Electric.
- Jason was commissioned in the United States Air Force. I’m not quite sure where he is at this moment, but chances are he will rotate locations with relative frequency.
- Matt wrote that he’d be working at the Department of Defense, but Facebook tells me that he is at BBN Technologies—maybe a last minute change of heart?
We’re very proud of our students (alumni!) and the many, many others with jobs and continuing education plans that will continue to fuel their passions for learning, discovery, and innovation.
What that means for us is that we’ll have a few new students to join the ones who have not yet graduated. Stay tuned in the next few weeks as they return to campus and make their introductions!
