This project studied the effectiveness of using Flash games to attract admitted students to Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). The study involved the creation of two WPI-based video games, a multimedia website and a forum for discussing student experiences at WPI. We attracted admitted students through a demonstration at "A Closer Look." Data concerning admitted student participation in playing the games, visiting the website, discussion on the forums, and interest at "A Closer Look" was collected and given to WPI Admissions.
