The Student Alumni Society (SAS) encourages participation in the long-standing and rich history of WPI traditions. SAS helps keep these traditions alive by sponsoring, planning and running various campus activities and special events throughout the school year for students, alumni, faculty, staff and parents.

SAS members are easily recognized on campus in their red-and-white striped rugbies. They cheer for the Engineers at athletic events, bring goats to campus and give away T-shirts and cake on Founders’ Day, give everyone a free fright at Haunted Higgins House each Halloween, throw a huge birthday party for WPI’s beloved mascot Gompei in February, and run WPI’s most cherished traditions such as the Freshmen Bridge Crossing and host the Goat’s Head Rivalry events.

Membership is open to all undergraduate students. SAS meetings are every Wednesday at 5 p.m. on campus. If you have any questions, please contact our Executive Committee.

We hosted four different events for the students to participate in and get a t-shirt! There was the Wheel of Traditions, a photo booth with Gompei, Pin the Horns on Gompei, and Notes and Floats with Grateful Goats. SAS had a really great time putting on events this term and we can’t wait to come back after winter break and continue with these events! SAS wishes you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
