Who are we, and why join?

The Student Alumni Association is a team of student leaders who seek to foster student-to-student and student-to-alumni connections. We host events throughout the year including the infamous OOzeball Mud Volleyball tournament and Alumni Networking events.

Joining SAA will allow you exclusive opportunities to speak personally with accomplished members of our UConn Alumni community. We are seeking members who strive to be a part of a close, friendly, and inviting group of students who value leadership opportunities and connection.

Join our SAA family and build relationships that will last long past graduation! We meet on Thursdays at 6 p.m. in the Alumni Center. Follow us on Instagram, send us an email or stop by any of our Thursday meetings to learn more.
