Student Alumni Network

From your first day walking up the Hill to your last day walking through the Campanile, we’ve got you covered.

Connecting You For Success

SAN connects you to everything KU: Opportunities on and off campus, KU traditions through the year, your Jayhawk classmates and more than 350,000 alumni around the world.

 

SAN is free for all students, so what are you waiting for? Sign up today! Fill out the form or download and sign into the KU Alumni app to register today!

  • Casual members-only events with food, entertainment, and connections
  • A one-stop shop for what’s happening on campus
  • Access to mentor relationships through the Jayhawk Career Network

KU Mentoring is your shot to connect with alumni to get the career advice you need. Plus, with Mocktails & Mingle bringing alumni to campus and KC x KU bringing you out to the city of fountains, you’ll get plenty of opportunities to be face-to-face with KU alumni.

The SAN eNews gives members the news about what’s up on campus. Keep an eye out for exclusive experiences and giveaways all year, like a behind-the-scenes tour of Allen Fieldhouse.

Homecoming is KU’s biggest party. When you’re with SAN, we’ll make sure you don’t miss out on the tradition. Plus, whenever KU Athletics needs spirited students for events like College Game Day in the Fieldhouse, you can bet SAN members get in first.

Please allow us to introduce ourselves: Union Fest means the beginning of a new year, with every student group under the sun there to meet you. And right afterwards is Big Jay’s Lock-in at the Jayhawk Welcome Center: We’re talking silent disco, karaoke, trivia, free food, and so much more.
