In Two Towers, WPI’s centennial history, Mildred Tymeson famously observed that WPI has endured, evolved, and prospered “because—by some strange and wonderful supply— there have always been enough people who cared.” It is time, once again, for people who care to come forward and come together to support WPI in this unprecedented campaign.
