Student Alumni Committee

2022-2023 SAC Events

Student Alumni Committee hosts various events throughout the year with the purpose of connecting students with alumni, celebrating our community and improving student life. While we cherish the ability to come together as one UChicago community, your health and safety are our top priority. For that reason, some of these events will be in-person while others will be hosted online. Check back for updates!

College Kick-off and Academic Opportunities Fair:

Students, faculty and Staff in the College are invited to join Dean Boyer and members of the College administration for a cookout on Harper Quad featuring free giveaways, music, and games to celebrate the beginning of another great academic year! The Academic Opportunities Fair is a new event in conjunction with College Kick-Off that is open to students from all class years. Stop by to gain academic resources, learn about research and professional development opportunities, and connect with advocacy and affinity groups.

Homecoming Banner Competition:

Express your UChicago pride with a student banner displayed at our Homecoming Block Party. Bring your artistic vision to life with paint and canvas. The winning house will bask in glory and a Housing-sponsored Study Break. This event is hosted by the Student Alumni Committee. Please contact StudentAlumnCommittee@uchicago.edu if you have any questions.  Check out the Announcements tab for details about Homecoming 2022!

Last year’s event was groundbreaking as, for the first time, alumni and students alike could vote for their favorite digital banners. See the submissions and winners of the 2021 Homecoming Banner Competition here!

Dinner With 12 Maroons (D12):

Dinner With 12 Maroons is a series of dinners that occurs in February as an opportunity for students to connect with faculty, staff, and alumni. Students sign up and are chosen at random to attend a dinner with peers, alumni, staff, and faculty. This event is a great way to cultivate meaningful connections in informal settings. At any given dinner, conversation topics may range from structuralism to public finance. To learn more about this event, email StudentAlumniCommittee@uchicago.edu.
