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.

June 2018 Update

On May 1, classes officially ended and members of the Student Alumni Society began their summers! Members are doing many exciting things this summer, including various internships, and travel plans. Many had the opportunity to return for Alumni Weekend, which took place May 31 through June 3. Our volunteers had so much fun interacting with alumni of all ages and hearing their stories from their time at WPI. We also had the opportunity to sing the alma mater a few different times throughout the weekend.

SAS hopes everyone has a great summer! We are excited to welcome the class of 2022 in the fall during New Student Orientation and Bridge Crossing!
