About the Student Alumni Associates

In the spirit of the University motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), the Student Alumni Associates of Virginia Tech (SAA) serve as ambassadors to the Alumni community. As an official affiliate of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association, SAA received its charter in 1974 to assist with various programs and initiatives centered around developing a foundation of connected alumni. SAA supports the programs of the Virginia Tech Division of Advancement and Alumni Relations, while embodying the organization's four pillars (Spirit, Tradition, Leadership, and Service) through action and word. SAA produces and implements programming to increase student education and awareness of the programs and services of the Alumni Association, in order to bridge the gap between Virginia Tech students and alumni. As a part of this mission, SAA also facilitates the promotion of spirit and tradition among the student body through activities such as the Hokie Bucket List.
Membership Information

The Student Alumni Associates (SAA) aim to engage the Virginia Tech student body and alumni base in the programming of the Alumni Association to build relationships with both groups capable of advancing the mission of SAA: serving as ambassadors to the present and future alumni community. To achieve this goal, SAA organizes spirit rallies, like those at Gobblerfest, Parent and Family Weekend, Homecoming, The Big Event, and Relay For Life; volunteers at the 50th Reunion during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend during the summers; and partners with other student run organizations to participate in service opportunities. SAA offers its members unparalleled leadership and networking opportunities. Our members consist of student leaders from all across campus members of the Corps of Cadets, SGA, Class Office, cultural groups, pre-professional organizations, Greek life, and more. The bonds forged between members, alumni, and the Alumni Association staff have proved invaluable as many have created long-lasting friendships and networking relationships in the professional world.

SAA accepts membership applications once an academic year, during the early Spring semester. To learn more about the organization and meet our spirited members, consider attending our Open House in November or one of our Information Sessions in January. To stay up-to-date with when these events will be happening, use the links at the bottom of our website to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.


Please note that attendance at one of the Information Sessions, though not the Open House, is mandatory for those who intend to apply. Following the application process, there will be Group and Individual Interviews prior to new member selection.
