Benefits of joining the Student Alumni Association

 

Networking and Leadership

Because of their close association with the Pitt Alumni Association, SAA members enjoy some of the best opportunities to interact with both Pitt alumni and top campus administrators. SAA members also are encouraged to serve in leadership roles as members of the Blue and Gold Society, the University's student ambassadors.

Friends and Fun

With more than 1,500 student members, the SAA is a great way to make friends and get involved with fun events, including the SAA picnics, annual homecoming festivities, and the Cathedral Ball—a December formal exclusively for SAA members and their guests.

Gifts and Greetings

The Pitt Alumni Association welcomes its new student members to campus each year with a Panther Pak gift, which includes an SAA T-shirt, a Pitt traditions glass, key card and lanyard for event access, and exclusive discounts at Oakland shops and restaurants.
