About the Student Alumni Associates

The Student Alumni Associates (SAA) is an official affiliate of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association. In 1974, the SAA was chartered by the Alumni Association to assist with various alumni programs. In addition, the SAA was organized to better orient undergraduates concerning the programs of the Alumni Association. Traditionally, SAA has approximately 100 members who are engaged in a variety of activities to promote Virginia Tech.
Membership Information

The Student Alumni Associates (SAA) is a bridge between the student population and the alumni of Virginia Tech. It offers its members unparalleled leadership opportunities through volunteer events, conferences and networking with alumni. Many of the events at Virginia Tech are organized by SAA such as pep rallies, HokieHype, Hokies Respect programs, Seniors Movin' On, Faculty Appreciation and Founders Day activities. SAA also supports many Alumni Association programs such as reunions, chapter and college constituency events. The STAT (Students Today Alumni Tomorrow) Team is a smaller group with SAA that works on strategic planning with Alumni Association staff to improve ways to reach out to students. Our members consist of fraternity and sorority officers, members of the VT Corps of Cadets, cultural organization leaders, elected Class representatives, and involved students from across our diverse campus. The bonds forged between the members and the alumni as well as the Alumni Association staff, has proved invaluable as many have created long lasting friendships and networking relationships in the corporate world. We're not just an organization where you'll meet people from different socio-economic backgrounds, but an organization where you'll make long lasting friendships with the university's diverse student and staff populations here and abroad.

Unlike any other organization, we recruit for new members only once a year during the spring semester (typically in late January to early February). To learn more about SAA, please attend one of the information sessions and submit the required application. There is an interview process for potential members.

NOTE: Attendence to one of the information sessions is required to apply. Attendees' name and email address will be recorded at each session.
