Student Alumni Associates

The College of Charleston Student Alumni Associates (SAA) is an organization of undergraduate students dedicated to promoting and preserving the history and traditions of our beloved alma mater. Founded by Alumni Association Executive Secretary Emeritus Tony Meyer ’49 in 1984, SAA has grown into one of the most distinguished leadership organizations on campus.

SAA members assist with important annual ceremonies including Convocation and Commencement, and volunteer at campus and Alumni Association events throughout the year, including Admitted Student Weekend, orientation, Alumni Weekends, career fairs, the College Ring Ceremony, and more. SAA donates annually to its endowed scholarship fund through sales of care packages and dorm room items. Campus traditions are celebrated and promoted through SAA’s Traditions Book and Medal program. During the 2016-17 academic year, members of SAA raised more than $12,000 from students and alumni to assist classmates with emergency food needs. SAA members have fun, form lifelong friendships, and preserve and promote the College we love.

If you are interested in joining SAA, consider submitting an applicationg during our New Member Fall Recruitment held each year.
