The Student Alumni Council (SAC) is an organization that serves as a liaison between students and the alumni of the University of Georgia. The Student Alumni Council works in collaboration with the UGA Alumni Association and seeks to enhance the relationships between students and alumni by representing and promoting university traditions, instilling pride, bolstering spirit, fostering community, and educating leaders.
SAC participates and coordinates a number of activities on campus and within the UGA community.
