Student Alumni Ambassadors

The UW Oshkosh Student Alumni Ambassadors (SAA) are a premiere group of student leaders that are the vital link between current campus life and University alumni. Student Alumni Ambassadors are dedicated to promoting UW Oshkosh and building pride among fellow students, alumni and the community.
