The Student Alumni Council seeks to enhance the UVA student experience by providing engaging events and programs, fostering meaningful relationships among fellow students and alumni, and strengthening students’ overall bond with both the University and the Alumni Association.

Key SAC Programs

  • Alumni Speaker Series: The SAC plans Alumni Speaker Series events throughout the year where students can hear from alumni in different career fields. The Council determines industries and topics that would be valuable to students’ professional development, identifies speakers to participate, and develops programming to foster connections.

  • Popup Events: The SAC plans fun popup events to build community and share information about Alumni Association resources.

  • Hoos Coming for Dinner: Local alumni in the Charlottesville area partner with the SAC to host students for dinner and conversation.

The SAC also enhances the overall student experience at signature Alumni Association events, including support of Bingo Nights, Study Breaks, and more. Members also assist the Alumni Association with social media content creation and in planning fun giveaways and popup events!
