The Parents Association Executive Committee is excited to launch our Regional Parents program. Our statistics show that outside of New England we have many concentrations of WPI families who live too far away to come to campus on a regular basis. We suspect that being a plane ride away is a fairly different experience for a parent than being a car ride away, and within a few hours drive of Worcester. As a result, we have started to create opportunities for parents in the same general area to get together, meet other WPI parents in their neighborhood, hear a current update about WPI from a staff member, and connect with others with whom you have something in common.
We are pleased to announce plans for the first get togethers in San Diego and Los Angeles in early December. Parents in those areas have been extremely helpful in our planning, and have even extended offers to host in their homes. We will be sending a save-the-date soon because we know that is a busy time of year!
Other parts of the country in which we hope to hold get togethers include Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Oregon, and Washington. If you are a parent in one of these areas and have an interest in helping us in your region, or even hosting in your home, we would be thrilled to hear from you.
