voluntary membership in community

August 28, 2013

Students enter WPI voluntarily. They apply, presumably, because they wish to further their education and because they believe WPI, with its traditions and reputation, is capable of advancing their intellectual attainments. Students come to learn, not to demand; to be guided, not to direct. If they do not like some of the rules, regulations, traditions, and policies of WPI, they do not have to enter. But let it be understood that having been accepted and having decided to enter, they are expected to abide by the laws of our nation and comply with rules and policies of WPI.
