Student Alumni Ambassadors work to enhance the student experience by providing opportunities to strengthen and build lifelong relationships to Elon as partners, advocates and investors. SAA facilitates interaction between students and alumni by creating relevant and meaningful programs for future alumni. Underlying all that the Student Alumni Ambassadors do, is a belief in the importance of fostering lifelong participation and philanthropic support while maintaining Elon’s spirit and traditions.
