The Student Calling program is made up of a team of Student Development Representatives — SAIT students — who connect SAIT graduates back to their alma mater. Student callers will ask about the SAIT experience from an alumni perspective and educate alumni on how they can support SAIT students through a variety of giving opportunities. They'll also provide updates on SAIT events, campus developments and other ways alumni can stay connected or get involve.
We are very proud of our student callers who act as ambassadors to the SAIT alumni community.
