Student Alumni Association

Current Bethel students who have earned 24 credit hours are, by definition, alumni and eligible for nomination to the Student Alumni Association (SAA). Each spring, faculty, staff and coaches nominate students who, in turn, are invited to join SAA the following school year. In addition, those interested can get a sign-up form from a member of the executive committee (see below).

SAA assists the Office of Alumni Relations and Alumni Association with various events that enhance relationships with alumni and friends of the college.
