The IRSC Student Alumni Association (IRSC SAA) kicked off in the fall of 2011. The Mission of this organization is to promote a positive image of Indian River State College to the student body, alumni, and friends of the College and community. The Purpose of the IRSC SAA is to enrich the academic experience of IRSC students by offering opportunities to network with alumni, attend enrichment events, and to grow in leadership skills with the goal to increase school spirit, produce strong leaders, facilitate interactions between students and alumni and enhance the student experience by providing opportunities that strengthen their lifelong loyalty to IRSC.
Student members of IRSC SAA have the opportunity to attend the Fall Etiquette Dinner during which they learned how to present themselves at a social business meal, give and make a proper introduction and handshake and give and receive a toast.
The members are also invited to participate in the annual IRSC Alumni Association Lifetime Member and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner where they serve as emcees, photographers, musicians, and greeters. They also have the opportunity to have dinner and network with these valued alumni
In addition, the members have the opportunity to participate in a Speed Networking event with IRSC Alumni to learn about various careers and professions. This year, the event included a mini-workshop on creating a proper LinkedIn and/or other professional social networking sites.
Throughout the year, students are offered opportunities to meet Alumni, attend Fine Arts productions, help with Alumni and College events, and kick back with fellow members at club-sponsored exam study breaks.
This year ended with the Alumni Professional Development Workshop during which participants attended workshops on Cover Letter and Resume Writing, Job Search and Interviewing Skills as well as a Dress for Success Workshop and Fashion Show.
