It's a fun activity for students, siblings of all ages, and parents to partake in for bragging rights between families and friends!

SAA provides its members the fantastic opportunity to connect with alumni on a more personal level. Each spring, SAA invites St. Ambrose University alumni--ranging from recent graduates to graduates from 40 years ago--to come back and interact with students. This opportunity provides students with valuable interviewing skills and allows them to connect with alumni from a variety of career fields, including health and medicine, education, business, marketing, accounting, and more! After 10 five-minute rounds, SAA hosts a post-networking social for students and alumni to connect even further.
SAA provides free shuttling to and from home football games to give all students the opportunity to cheer the Bees on to victory!
