Student Alumni Council (SAC)

The Student Alumni Council (SAC) is a student-run group that fosters connections between students and alumni, empowers students to be a part of the wider Grinnell community, raises awareness about Grinnell’s history and traditions, and works to develop a culture of service and philanthropy among current students. SAC fosters an atmosphere that guides students through their transition to life after Grinnell, bestowing a sense of pride in the community and a commitment to give back with their time, talent, treasure, and ties.

SAC Copresident Paul Cover

Paul Cover ’21Hello! I’m Paul Cover (he/him/his), and I’m one of the Copresidents for SAC this year. I’m a fourth year Biology major from Columbia, Missouri, and in my free time I like to swim, play music, and tinker with technology. I joined SAC my first year because a friend of mine on the swim team was an executive at the time, and talked me and my roommate Mitch Sevier into joining. SAC immediately hooked me with a blend of alumni interaction, engagement with students and the community, and just all around wholesomeness that I haven’t found anywhere else, and I’ve been a member ever since.

SAC Copresident Mitch Sevier

Mitch Sevier ’21Hello! My name is Mitch Sevier (he/him/his), and I'm a fourth-year biology and history double major from Kansas City, Missouri. Something interesting about me is that I'm on the Grinnell Swim and Dive team, and this season I'm one of the captains of the men's team. This year, I'm one of the Co-Presidents of SAC. I joined SAC to help give back to the wider Grinnell community, both within the college and the town, that has welcomed me in from day one. I love helping to build connections between students and alumni, faculty and staff, and community members.
