Tech's Largest Student Organization Kicks Off Second Year
Posted September 8, 2011 | Atlanta, GA
Last year, the Georgia Tech Student Alumni Association (SAA) revealed itself as the newest student organization on campus. By the end of the year, SAA had become the largest, most diverse student organization on campus with 2,056 undergraduate and graduate student members. SAA also provided members with the opportunity to enjoy more than $900 worth of free stuff, make more than 14,000 connections with alumni and give more than $30,000 back to Tech.
SAA kicks off its second year on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at eight locations across campus. Any student, member or non-member, can stop by these locations to learn about SAA, meet Georgia Tech alumni and enjoy free giveaways. Waffle House, Chick-fil-A, Coca-Cola, Tin Drum, Barrelhouse, The Varsity, Rita’s Italian Ice and more will be at the various sites handing out free food in support of SAA.
That evening, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tech Tower Lawn, all members are invited for dinner and networking with alumni at SAA’s “Welcome to SAA” event. Tech grad Riccardo Ullio (CE 90, MS CEE 93), chef and owner of well-known Atlanta URestaurants will be onsite to meet students and serve up free dinner from his restaurants. Attendees will enjoy everything from Neopolitan pizza from Fritti, to lasagnette Bolognese from Sotto Sotto and chicken tinga tacos from Escorpion. Tech grad, former NFL football player and owner of Kent's Country Cookies, Kent Hill (IMGT 79), will also be onsite handing out cookies to all attendees.
All Tech students are encouraged to stop by one of SAA’s locations and join today to give back, get the goods and get connected today!
