Student Alumni Ambassadors

Lead the Way and Make an Impact!

The University of Evansville is a place filled with exceptional minds, extraordinary opportunities, diverse cultures, and rich traditions. Campus involvement is one of the best ways to become a part of UE and make a life-long impact. Student Alumni Ambassadors, or SAA, is one of the most dynamic student organizations on campus and it is our mission to foster communication, awareness, and interaction between current students and alumni. We offer programming for our members that ranges from social activities to formal dinners and networking events to leadership-development programs to Homecoming. Whatever you are seeking, SAA has something to offer.
