Student Alumni Association

2018 Senior Picnic SAA

SAA is dedicated to enhancing the connection between past, present and future students. We work to create a sense of community and instill a lifelong commitment to the University of Dayton. By creating relationships between students and alumni for mentoring, networking and social engagements, SAA aims to show Flyers of all ages that you never really leave UD.

SAA members work on a variety of projects:

  • Advise and offer feedback to the Alumni Relations department on the student experience, connecting with alumni and planning student events.
  • Collaborate with local alumni communities to develop partnership opportunities for students and alumni.
  • Serve as student representatives for alumni and donor events on campus.
  • Coordinate events such as the Dinners for 5 Flyers program and local gamewatches to bring together students and alumni.
  • Manage the Final Exam Pizza Program.
  • Help students connect with alumni through offering funding that supports bringing alumni and students together.

For Alumni

Looking for an easy way to support current students? Remember those long hungry study nights in the library before finals? Support the SAA Final Exam Pizza Program! The Sunday before finals, SAA distributes free pizza to students studying in the library. Just $15 will buy a pizza for students to get through a long night of studying.

Host a Dinner with 5 Flyers! Collaborate with SAA to provide an evening of fun and fellowship by gathering 5 alumni and 5 students together for dinner. This can be hosted at an alum's house, a restaurant, or on campus. Contact us for more information!
