My time as part of SAA's Ramblin' On committee was a phenomenal one. I simply loved the experience, which allowed me to help plan a major event while developing necessary communication and cooperation skills with both other members of the committee and professionals, as well. Plus, the group of students I worked with ultimately all became my friends, which is an invaluable feeling!! - Josh Brown, HTS 2015, SAA Committee Chair
Mentor Jackets program is awesome. I not only have a wonderful mentor, but also ended up having a lifetime friend who can offer me advice and help whenever I need it. I will participate in this program every year. The program provides precious opportunities for students to connect closely with alumni. - Zhong Chen, Master's CS 2013, Mentor Jackets Participant
Being a part of the Student Alumni Association opened doors at Georgia Tech that I would never have dreamed of. During my time as a member of SAA, I was given the opportunity to coordinate a Dinner Jacket event with Tom Fanning, the CEO of Southern Company and a fellow Yellow Jacket. That was easily one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences from my time at Tech. Plus, I got a free steak out of it! - Imran Ali, MGT 2012, Dinner Jackets Participant
