S.A.A.C.

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.) is made up of representatives from each sport. They meet regularly to discuss issues which affect student life. Social functions for all student-athletes are planned as well as community outreach projects (i.e., Special Olympics events, Thanksgiving meals for those less fortunate, signed holiday cards for members of the Armed Forces, National Student-Athlete Day, etc.). S.A.A.C. meets with the Athletic Director on a regular basis. This has proven to be a very effective means of communication for the student-athletes and an excellent source of information for administrators. You are encouraged to become involved in the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.) because it is an excellent way for student-athletes to participate in decisions regarding student life issues and concerns as well as a means to broaden your college experience.
