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.

May 2018 Update

On April 21, SAS had our annual Alumni Lunch! It was a casual lunch after Community Service Day where students got to chat with alumni over food and SAS-themed activities. To end the year, we had our termly event, Destress with SAS, on April 29. This term it was called Shred Your Stress and students could write down something that is stressful for them and shred it in a paper shredder. Ice cream was also served, perfect for the end of the term. Our Senior Barbecue concluded our events for the year. Seniors were given their graduation cords and new members received their rugbies. Congratulations to those who received their rugbies and we wish the seniors the best of luck!
