The Student Alumni Association was founded in 1985 and is sponsored by the Alumni Association. We strive to foster a sense of pride and tradition in the University. As an open organization, we collectively promote an active program of recruitment and commitment among both students and alumni. Our programs are designed to promote interaction between students and alumni for the betterment of the University. SAA’s primary goals are to generate spirit surrounding the University among the student body, provide information about the Alumni Association to the student body, and keep the Alumni Association aware of developments on campus, which affect student perception of the University. Some of our events include Rhody Rally, the Nearly Naked Mile, and Oozeball. We also create and distribute survival kits, which parents can purchase to help their students “survive” final exams each semester.
