‘Wick Student Alumni Ambassadors

The Hartwick College Student Alumni Ambassadors, also known as ‘Wick SAA, is a student organization whose goal is to promote class unity through social, educational, fundraising, and career-oriented activities.

The SAA work closely with the offices of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving, so students have the opportunity to connect with alumni in the area through network meetings, alumni events, and TRUE BLUE WEEKEND – Hartwick’s Homecoming Welcoming Alumni, Families & Reunion Classes.
