What Students are Saying About the S-AA
“Working as a university liaison through the S-AA has provided me the skills and experience to become a more versatile professional. The flexible hours have afforded me the opportunity to develop today’s necessary career skills while also pursuing an intense degree. I could not have been granted a better job opportunity while studying at Kent State!”
– Michelle, ‘15

“The Student Alumni Association has been a special and unique experience for me because it allows students to really get to know Kent State University alumni on a personal level. Several alumni have told me that our efforts at S-AA make them feel like they are still important to Kent State which is, in my opinion, insurmountable in terms of making a difference. Due to my involvement with S-AA, I feel as though my interviewing skills are better than ever and I am far more confident when it comes to communicating with others both socially and professionally.”
- Mallory,  ‘15

“Holding this particular position gives you contact with so many people that a student would never normally get to work with.”

- Jesse Markowitz, '14
