I was not able to make it to a t-shirt distribution. Can i still pick up my shirt?

SAA members can come by the third floor of the Park Alumni Center (on Centennial Campus) at 2450 Alumni Drive from 9am-4pm on Monday-Friday following a t-shirt distribution to pick up their shirts if they were unable to pick them up at the event. Note that certain sizes may run out, so it is advised to pick shirts as early as possible. Furthermore, if you would like to have your shirt set aside for you before you arrive, please submit a request here with your name, SSA ID #, and T-shirt size.

My roommate (who is an SAA Member) can't make it to a t-shirt distribution, but I can. Can I pick up his/her Shirt when I get my own?

No, each SAA member has to attend a distribution event in person to pick up their shirt, in order to be fair to those who make it to the event. If your roommate wants to pick up his/her shirt, look at the question above this one.

As an SAA member, am I guaranteed a membership t-shirt and six beat t-shirts each year?

I am not able to make it to a t-shirt distribution. Can I pick up my shirt before the event?
