What is the Student Alumni Board?
The Student Alumni Board (SAB) was created in 2001 to connect current and former undergraduate students of Hamline University. The purpose of the Student Alumni Board is to connect Pipers past, present, and future. Today, the organizational structure of the Student Alumni Board consists of three teams - Outreach, Events, and Membership - and an Executive Board.
