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.

April 2019 Update

The Student Alumni Society had a very busy start to D term! We kicked it off with Goddard Day where we collaborated with Greek Life, SIAM, AIAA, and Rockets Dance Team to show off the accomplishments of Robert Goddard. There was also a bottle rocket competition that day as a part of Greek Week 2019. 

SAS also hosted an Alumni Roundtable where 6 WPI alumni came back to campus and had dinner with current students. They talked about life after graduation and how things have changed on campus. 

SAS participated in Relay For Life at WPI where we were able to raise $4,500 for cancer. We were the highest non-Greek Life organization! 

This past week was Traditions Week where we had 3 days of events, starting with Candle Walk, Cageball, Pennant Rush, and Family Feud. Phi Kappa Theta won the Goat’s Head Trophy this term at Cageball and Pennant Rush. 

SAS will finish up the term with our de-stress event, where we are partnering with Phi Kappa Theta to help run Thank Kap It’s Friday!
When we return from summer break, we will hit the ground running with our New Student Orientation events and Bridge Crossing!
