What is the Student Alumni Council?
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.
What do we do?
SAC participates and coordinates a number of activities on campus and within the UGA community. SAC offers its members unparalleled leadership opportunities through events, conferences and networking with alumni. The bonds forged between members and alumni as well as the Alumni Association staff, has proved invaluable as many SAC members have created long lasting friendships and networking bonds.
Student Alumni Council members also help to promote the Student Alumni Association (SAA) by understanding that a lifelong connection to UGA begins the day you enter the university. Student Alumni Council members coordinate:
