Student Alumni Association


The Nebraska Student Alumni Association (formerly known as Scarlet Guard) was founded in 1974 by the Nebraska Alumni Association. It is one of the largest student organizations on campus with more than 1,400 diverse members.

Open to both undergraduate and graduate students, SAA offers students the fullest Husker experience. Members explore campus traditions through the Cornhusker Compass app, available through Google Play and iTunes, making lifelong memories and experiencing UNL’s one-of-a-kind traditions. And, through social and professional development events, students create lasting connections with each other, university leaders and successful alumni.
