SAA History

Prior to 1987, campus tours were primarily given by student employees in the UNI Office of Admissions.

In 1987, the Student Alumni Council (S.A.C.) and Student Ambassadors merged groups - becoming SAA, Student Alumni Ambassadors.

Throughout the years, SAA has served as the "face of UNI" for Admissions, the Alumni Office, the Foundation, and other departments around campus. Responsibilities and demands increased, but the group's main focus stayed on campus tours, panels, Preview Days, and visits from prospective students and their families.

In 2007, the group changed its name to the Student Admissions Ambassadors, to reflect the evolving nature of the group. Also, the formation of an alumni student group, CATS (Connecting Alumni to Students), alleviated most of the responsibilities that SAA had with alumni events. SAA now devotes most of its time to Admissions functions - while CATS is responsible for Alumni functions. They serve as "bookend" groups - one working with incoming students, the other working with future and current alums. SAA also still helps with Foundation events, requests from the President's Office and various other departmental functions.
