SAA is born out of AU’s department BTECH in Herning, and the main focus is on AU Herning students. As the only AU Herning activity association with events for all students regardless of chosen education, SAA receive frequent funding from the department. The funding is however generally in exchange of planned general activities and occasionally of activities with specific purposes. A typical specific purpose activity could be the annual Freshmen Trip and the Freshmen Day.
