Your Hornet connection for life!

Sacramento State Alumni Association (SSAA) is your Hornet connection for life. SSAA provides the opportunity to develop professional networks, advance social interests, volunteer in the community, engage with students, continue education, and reconnect with your alma mater.

Your generous donation supports student scholarships and engaging programming year round for students, alumni, and our community. 

Alumni & Student Engagement

Did you know that SSAA offers events focused on networking and professional advancement for current students as well as alumni looking to make a career move? The Alumni Association's programs provide incredible resources for current students and alumni to learn more about life after college, paths to employment, and career success.

With your gift of $500+ to support Alumni & Student Engagement, we welcome you into the Alumni Circle, which provides you with exclusive communications and engagement opportunities. 

Plus, Jennifer Barber will donate $1,000 if 15 individuals join the Alumni Circle as part of Give Sac State Day!

 

Scholarships

Your Sacramento State Alumni Association also provides dozens of scholarships every year to current students in all majors. Scholarship awards range in size from $500 to $3,000 for the academic year and help Sacramento State students pursue their higher education dreams.

Chapter Support

Through the efforts of their members, each chapter hosts activities, mentors students, and many award scholarships. Your chapter scholarship support enables various chapters to provide additional scholarships, reaching more students who would otherwise be unable to attend a university.

The Golden Hive Scholarship celebrates the legacy of alumni that graduated 50 years ago or more and supports the academic pursuits of our current Hornet students. Nancy and Aleck Darr founded the scholarship in honor of Nancy’s graduation in 1970. Now, the Darrs invite fellow alumni from all class years to join them in supporting students through the Golden Hive Scholarship. Please join the Darrs in changing the future today!

Tax-deductible donations of any size are greatly appreciated. Your support keeps programming and membership free to students, alumni and our community.
