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.

October 2019 Update

Happy end of A-term! SAS had a wonderful time keeping traditions alive this term. Herd Day was a success this year, returning to the Quad. Students participated in a Herd Day Hash where they had to run around campus for clues and the first team back won. Homecoming 2019 was also very successful. Rope Pull went really well. Congratulations to the class of 2023 for beating the class of 2022! Also Congratulations to Phi Kappa Theta for defending the Goats Head Trophy once again. Haunted Higgins House will be October 26 starting at 7:00 PM. Make sure to bring a canned good to skip the line. Hope to see some of you there!
