About QSAA

Queen's Student Alumni Association (QSAA) is made up of a diverse group of student leaders from all faculties that work to deliver a series of events and initiatives that enrich the student experience and student-alumni connection.


The QSAA is a student-run organization that prepares Queen's students for success by connecting them to their futures as engaged Queen's alumni. QSAA's events offer students opportunities to hear from, network, and connect with Queen's alumni, providing students with outside-the-classroom professional and personal development. 


Founded in 1986, STAR (The Queen’s Student Team on Alumni Relations), was the first student-run organization that promoted student-alumni engagement at Queen’s. In September of 2008, STAR was restructured as the Queen’s Student Alumni Association (QSAA) to better transition students into members of the Queen’s University Alumni Association (QUAA).

Working out of Summerhill, our volunteer student ambassadors work alongside the Department of Alumni Relations & Annual Giving and the Queen's University Alumni Association (QUAA) Board.
