The mission of the Student Alumni Association is to establish tradition and enhance students' lives by encouraging affinity to the University and its Alumni, through benefits and programs that engage the student body, ultimately creating a culture of philanthropy.
Members of SAA are offered professional development opportunities to prepare them for life after graduation. Monthly meetings provide strategic programming designed specifically for students. Opportunities to connect with alumni at Alumni Relations sponsored events. SAA members volunteer their assistance at various campus-wide events, where they become familiar faces on campus and are known for their support of the University.
Activities to create a sense of belonging and tradition are regularly scheduled. SAA supports UWF athletic events through tailgate parties, Beat Shirts and attendance at sporting events. During Homecoming, SAA members participate in campus competitions and events, showing their support and pride for the University. From Argie's Birthday Bash to the Professional Development Symposium, there is always something to be a part of.
Membership is only $15 per year and includes a Student Alumni Association t-shirt, a 10% textbook discount at the UWF Bookstore (does not include rentals or digital purchases) and a SAA discount card that provides discounts at the UWF Bookstore, area restaurants and retail stores.
