The full name of WPI.
A good technical university located in Worcester, Massachusetts, (hence the name). In MA, its the general practice for top students who want to be engineers to apply to MIT (and maybe CalTech) and WPI. WPI is also known for taking risks with kids with average or subaverage grades and good or great SAT scores.
Random WPI tidbits:

WPI is responsible for some venerable geek slang such as gweep and flame; occasional WPI students seem to have disturbing Monopoly (The Milton Bradley variety) tendencies, holding, among others, the record for the longest session of underwater Monopoly playing.

WPI also has the strange honor of being the primary source of fraternities in Worcester, making it both the geekiest school in town (aside, perhaps, from WIT) and the partying-est.
