This project quantifies student-centered benefits of attending special interest meetings called meetups, and identifies barriers that impact student attendance to meetups, in order to provide recommendations for improving extracurricular education at WPI. Our objective is to ensure that WPI students understand the benefits of attending meetups in the greater Boston area that relate to their academic interests and professional development. The results of 322 student survey responses and multiple interviews suggest that WPI students are generally unaware of meetups and the benefits of attending them, but that the small percentage of students who have attended meetups report significant improvements to their educational experience and career prospects.
