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.

Who We Are

In conjunction with UW Oshkosh Alumni Relations, Student Alumni Ambassadors are passionate about UW Oshkosh campus life and history. You will find Student Alumni Ambassadors participating in many University and alumni events and networking with alumni professionals.
