Student Alumni Association
Pitt's Student Alumni Association (SAA) is one of the most popular and active student groups on campus. Members enjoy exclusive opportunities, interact with alumni, meet campus leaders, and share their Pitt pride by helping to promote Pitt traditions across campus. To join the SAA, click here.
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. Pick up your Panther Pak at our offices at 140 Alumni Hall. SAA members also receive limited edition Beat Cups for each Pitt Football home game.
Dinner with 12 Panthers
This annual event and now a standing tradition, occurs during the start of the spring semester. The premise of the program is that Pitt alumni sign-up to host or co-host a dinner for no more than twelve Student Alumni Association members at a location of the alumnus's choice. Students and alumni are then matched in accordance with their interests and majors to the best of our ability.
