Alumni Engagement

Emory Student Alumni Association

The Emory Student Alumni Association (SAA), a branch of the Emory Alumni Association, welcomes all students who have completed two semesters of study. These students are considered alumni in honor of the late Robert W. Woodruff, who left Emory after a term to work at The Coca-Cola Company.

Haven’t completed two semesters yet? No problem. All Emory students have access to most of the benefits provided by these two alumni organizations, including access to exclusive programming, mentorship, and more.

The mission of the SAA is to connect alumni with the student body by building traditions, fostering student and alumni interaction, serving the diverse needs and interests of our community, and creating opportunities for investment in Emory’s future.

SAA programs are organized throughout the year and are lead, in part, by the Student Alumni Board. The board is a select group of 50 undergraduate leaders with a passion for connecting students with alumni and encouraging students to stay engaged with Emory after graduation.
