Student Alumni Association
The IUPUC Student Alumni Association (SAA) promotes strong student and alumni relationships through service to the university.
We’re all about IUPUC pride, tradition, and spirit. As a student contingent of the IUPUC Alumni Association, our goal is to help you build a lifelong relationship with IUPUC before you graduate.

SAA and the IUPUC Alumni Association join forces to host a number of events throughout the year. They run the gamut from blood drives and donor challenges between Indiana University and Purdue University to trips to the statehouse, participation in the annual Honors Convocation, and "mocktail" cocktail receptions to learn the art of social networking with alumni and local business leaders.
We're still in the planning stages for SAA events that will be held beginning this fall. If you have an idea or suggestion for an SAA event, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
