What is Student Alumni Association?

Student Alumni Association (SAA) provides students the opportunity to get involved with the Rockhurst University Alumni Association as a student. It provides fun, educational opportunities for students to learn about Rockhurst traditions and history, grow school spirit, and meet and form connections with RU Alumni.

SAA members will work together to coordinate events for students on campus including signature events like Dinner with a Dozen Hawks and Rockhurst Made Possible Week.

They also will have the opportunity to volunteer to assist alumni staff at special alumni events on and off campus in Kansas City.
