Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

We will forever be what few can claim: college student-athletes. Enhance and shape your own student-athlete career by being part of something bigger, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

Our mission is to provide student-athletes with a voice in the athletic department, allowing them freedom to express concerns and ideas for improvement, as well as promoting a positive student-athlete image and enhancing the total student-athlete experience by encouraging the support and interaction between all students on campus.

SAAC Events:
“Cans Across the Conference” Food Drive
This is an annual competition between the conference’s member institutions to see who can collect the most non-perishable food items, which are then donated locally. During homecoming week, t-shirts can be purchased with your can donation.

Basketball Giveaways
At most home basketball games, our sponsors distribute giveaways for the fans. In addition, we host many halftime contests with a variety of prizes for the winners. We are looking to expand this to other sporting events.

Track & Field Trivia
The 2011 season was the first time for this event, which included a trivia sheet to fill out to get to know the track & field athletes. Prizes such as t-shirts for all participants and a free parking space for the following school year were given away. We are hoping to repeat this giveaway again this year.

We are always looking for more ideas of ways to get our fellow students involved in our athletic events and always are looking for new members!
