About Us

Mission
SASS is a student-run organization dedicated to serving the needs of students at SLAC. We seek to build a student community that supports learning, communication skill development, and exploration of research and careers. Each week we host seminars delivered by and for SLAC students.
Our Constitution
Our constitution was written in the fall of 2008. It was ratified at the January 2009 meeting.
Organization
SASS is run by two 'czars' who organize seminars. All students at SLAC are welcome to provide feedback, give talks, or become czars.
Support
We thank SLAC's Particle Physics and Astrophysics Stanford Fund for providing refreshments for our seminars each week.
History
SASS was started in January of 2008 by Wells Wulsin and Manuel Franco Sevilla.
