Achieve the Ultimate Husker Experience

The Student Alumni Association is all about achieving the fullest and most authentic Husker experience. Through social, networking and professional development events, we connect members to their peers, accomplished alumni and UNL leaders. And, through our official Cornhusker Compass Guidebook, members explore one-of-a-kind Husker traditions.

Cornhusker Compass

Our Cornhusker Compass is the official guidebook containing all of UNL’s one-of-a-kind traditions. As an SAA member, you’ll receive your official printed book, and you’ll have access to our free smartphone app, available through iTunes and Google Play.

As you complete traditions, take photos and document your experiences in your guidebook or through the app.

Become a Tradition Keeper

By checking off 50 or more campus traditions, either in your guidebook or on the app, you’ll become an Official Tradition Keeper. Official Tradition Keepers receive a medallion to wear at their graduation, and we recognize them at our spring awards banquet.

Achieving 25 completed traditions qualifies you for Knight status. Knights are recognized with an honorary Student Alumni Association pin and certificate and are celebrated at a dinner reception with fellow knights and campus dignitaries.

The number of Official Tradition Keepers grows every year. Start fulfilling the traditions today, because those are the memories you will talk about for years to come.
