Beanies and Bowties

A new exhibit, Through the Eyes of a Student: 100 Years of Student Life at WPI, opens today in the Gladwin Gallery on the Ground Floor of Gordon Library.  Curated by senior Sarah Conlin as part of her Major Qualifying Project and full of objects, photographs, and documents from WPI’s archival collections, the exhibit offers a look at the many changes that marked WPI’s first century both inside and out of the classroom. Organized by class years, visitors can follow early Techs along from the wearing of the freshman beanie to the awarding of diplomas.  Alumni visitors are also welcome to share their own memories of their time on campus in a Reflections area or by emailing archives@wpi.edu.

The exhibit will be on view from April 10, 2014 through October 2014. To learn more about Sarah and her MQP experience, read the Daily Herd’s recent interview.
