Athletic Hall of Fame

The WPI Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1983 to honor the best that WPI Athletics has to offer. It was conceived and founded on the basis that many individuals have bestowed honor and recognition upon both themselves and WPI as a result of their involvement in WPI athletics. The WPI Athletic Hall of Fame is created to appropriately recognize those people who have distinguished themselves and WPI.
