Find Your Place
Or places. At SAU, there are so many exciting and engaging student life activities from which to choose that you probably won't participate in just one. That's what makes living here so different from student life at other schools.
Uplifting dance moves
Our impact is larger because we unite in service. Each year, hundreds of SAU students fill the Rogalski Center and pour their heart and soul into 13 hours of dance. It's a reflection of their deep drive to support children battling the toughest medical challenges of their lives. Since 2013, SAU Dance Marathon has raised more than $1.3 million for Children's Miracle Network and the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital.
All the Comforts of Home
A residence hall is more than a place to live. Students living in our comfortable residence halls participate in recreational, educational, spiritual, and cultural programs that contribute to their overall growth and personal development.
