Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is recognized by USF’s Student Government Association as a student club on campus. STAT functions as a liaison between students and alumni, providing mutually beneficial collaborative opportunities.

This club is led by a group of students known as the Distinguished Leaders. We expand the educational experience while improving student life and strengthening students’ lifelong loyalty to USF. Distinguished Leaders are selected through an application process.

Applications submitted from now through May 1, 2022 will be for positions that begin in the fall of 2022.

This group began in 2007 when MBA student, Aubrey Knight ’04, ’07, saw a need for students to have connections to recent and prominent alumni to help expand the student experience and promote professional networking. A small group began to meet and organize events and programming and by 2008, applied for and received official club status. 

We meet twice each semester to coordinate upcoming events and collaboration opportunities with other clubs or departments. This club co-sponsors the Student Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program as well.

  • Homecoming & Reunion Weekend

STAT is a proud member of CASE ASAP (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education Association of Student Advancement Programs). This organization’s goal is to foster and enhance student involvement in all areas of advancement – from alumni relations and communications to fundraising, marketing and related areas. As a member, STAT will have access to a wide array of resources to enhance our student advancement program, network with peers from around the U.S. and Canada.
