The mission of the Student Alumni Association (SAA) is to connect alumni to the University and the student body by building tradition, fostering student and alumni interaction, serving the diverse needs and interests of our community, and creating opportunities for investment in Emory’s future.
The Student Alumni Association (SAA) is the student chapter of the Emory Alumni Association. At Emory, all students who have completed two semesters are considered alumni, and automatically become members of the Student Alumni Association.
The SAA connects current students with Emory University alumni and encourages students to be active alumni themselves upon graduation. Members will interact with alumni as well as attend SAA-hosted events throughout the year. See below for our lists of signature events and programs.
The Student Alumni Board (SAB) is a group of about 40 student leaders who oversee the planning and execution of the SAA signature programs and events as well as the organization’s overall strategic direction. These students have the opportunity to work closely with the Emory Alumni Association staff and various Emory Alumni to ensure that programs align with the mission of SAA and provide value to SAA members and the Emory community as a whole.

The SAB advises the EAB on student programs and connections, and members frequently participate in board meetings.
