WASSA is the Washington Semester Student Association. Its mission is to help to organize campus activities throughout the year to build a spirit of mutual understanding, cooperation and communication among the SPExS Community. WASSA partners with the Residence Hall Association (RHA) and Tenley Hall Council (THC) to bring the semester students together for various events. The members serve as student leaders for the semester.
WASSA events throughout the fall and spring semesters include barbecues, a Super Bowl Watch Party, Second Chance Prom, Winter Masquerade Ball, Karaoke Night, Nationals game, themed food nights sponsored by Bon Appétit Catering and more. The association also plans community service events, fundraisers for local/international organizations and bring special guest speakers to the Tenley campus. The association meets once a week in the evenings to plan their events and discuss students’ needs and concerns. To join WASSA, contact the Student Services and Events Coordinator at SPExS.
WASSA is led by the association officers and advised by the student services and events coordinator for SPExS. Admitted Washington Semester students who receive a Work-Award as part of their financial aid package can be selected to become an officer and use the position for their work-award for the semester.
