Life on Campus

Get involved

There’s more to college life than going to class and cramming for exams. At WPI, you’ll be part of a lively and diverse community where you can explore your interests and expand your horizons.

We have more than 200 clubs and organizations, whether you want to build robots, publish a newspaper, pledge a fraternity or sorority, or take to the stage in a musical or theatre group, there’s something for everything. If you’re a budding or competitive athlete, you can find your fit in one of 18 NCAA III varsity teams or 40 club sports and intramurals. All students can enjoy working out in our new Sports & Rec center, complete with a competition swimming pool and racquetball courts.

However you choose to get involved at WPI, you will quickly become attuned to our rich history of impressive and quirky traditions. Find out about our illustrious alumni, get a head start on memorizing all of our campus acronyms, and come meet Gompei, our resident goat mascot.
