Show Me the Money is a free financial planning seminar, including presentations on such topics as budgeting, home buying, and investments.

The Take a Cougar to Lunch (TACTL) program is a unique opportunity for students to meet and network with an alumni mentor in a friendly lunchtime setting. Our database includes a list of BYU alumni who are willing to share their knowledge with students pursuing similar fields of interest.

This formal ball has become a BYU tradition for alumni, students, and friends. The evening will include dancing, live music, dance instruction, refreshments, and complimentary photos.

Held each April in the Wilkinson Student Center, Senior Celebration is the send-off for graduates at the end of each year. Event Management plans the event and BYU Student Alumni organizes a huge booth, giveaways, and advertising in an effort to gather seniors' contact information and to inform them of their responsibility as alumni of Brigham Young University.

Participating in the Y Book traditions will help you begin to develop the heart and soul of a true blue Cougar. Whether you are a freshman just beginning to discover the many traditions at BYU or a seasoned veteran of traditions, we hope you will find this compilation useful and fun!

The BYU Student Alumni Association and descendants of former BYU president George H. Brimhall honor the founders of Brigham Young University each year at Homecoming with the Brimhall Essay Contest. The competition is designed to encourage high levels of scholarship among BYU students and promote understanding and appreciation of BYU’s mission and legacy and the challenges of its great founders.

One of BYU’s most enjoyable traditions is Hike and Light the Y. Since 1924, hundreds of students and alumni alike have participated in lighting the Y every BYU Homecoming, Freshmen Orientation, graduation, and Y Days. Students hike Y Mountain and light up the 380 foot high Y with more than 200 lights.

Student Alumni participates in recruiting events throughout the year. Look for us at the following events:

- Foundations of Leadership
- New Student Orientation
- Homecoming Parade
- Involvapalooza
