UNT students are on campus only for a short time, but being a member of the Mean Green family lasts forever. The Student Alumni Association helps students maximize their experience at UNT and build valuable, lasting connections as they move toward graduation.

Through this branch of their organization, the UNT Alumni Association hopes to enhance the student experience and showcase the value of staying engaged with the university and fellow alumni after graduation.

"We are excited to open up student-level membership in the Alumni Association," says Kristen Sosa, Student Alumni Association director. "Our goal is to connect students to the alumni experience and bridge the gap between UNT students and graduates."

Students may join the association with a $20 yearly fee or a life membership. The $500 life membership may be paid in installments each semester and becomes a UNT Alumni Association life membership upon graduation.

Student Alumni Association members receive all of the benefits of a UNT Alumni Association membership, with the added value of exclusive networking events and opportunities for philanthropic and leadership education. Members also are encouraged to embrace university traditions and chronicle college memories with the UNT Traditions Keeper program -- a digital scavenger hunt and scrapbook.

Students can join the UNT Student Alumni Association through the UNT Alumni Association mobile app available for iPhone or Android, or online.
