Student Alumni Board
The Vanderbilt Student Alumni Board (SAB) serves as a conduit of connection where Vanderbilt students engage with each other and with VU alumni, to create meaningful community and a lifelong relationship with Vanderbilt.
Build class unity
Foster student-alumni connections
The Student Alumni Board (SAB) is a team of students specific to each class who design and implement (with the help of an adviser from the Office of Alumni Relations) the class building/alumni involvement activities for each undergraduate class. SAB has four boards—one for each class.
Program traditions include:
Seniorfest: Class-building tradition on Alumni Lawn, where seniors kickoff their final year claiming “Almost” Alumni Lawn with food, music, T-shirts and more.
Junior Networking Lunch: Informal networking lunch connecting juniors and alumni of various industries.
Fall into Service: Off campus opportunity for juniors and alumni to serve a local nonprofit and connect with each other.
Sophomore SlamDunk Tailgate: Class-building tradition for the sophomore class to enjoy free food, prizes, and more while cheering on the ’Dores in Memorial Gym’s elite Admiral’s Room.
Freshman–Senior Dinner: Dinner for first-year students and seniors in the spring semester. All first-year students are invited. Seniors are selected to share their advice to the first-years (i.e. what not to miss, what to miss, highlights of VU experience).
