The Student Alumni Council is a student organization chartered by the Texas State Alumni Association. This group engages Texas State students with the Texas State Alumni Association through philanthropy and engagement, connects them with meaningful avenues for continued university support, and provides a clear pathway toward serving as leaders in the alumni community upon graduation. In addition to facilitating events like Step Up For State and Ring Celebration, the Student Alumni Council supports the initiatives of the Alumni Association's Board of Directors to engage current students.
