Week of Welcome

ROTC talks wins, losses, prepares for competitions

Combining values of the Capstone Creed and the U.S. Army, members of the University of Alabama Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) are consistently striving for excellence. They have achieved high scores in the classroom, and now they look to do the same at their competitions.  

Week of Welcome events to begin

University of Alabama students are once again ringing in the new school year with a week long free event extravaganza. The Division of Student Affairs is hosting Week of Welcome (WOW), a series of events set to welcome first-year students to The University of Alabama, this week until Thursday, August 27. WOW gives freshmen and transfer students the chance to connect with one another and get involved during their first week on campus.

Week of Welcome

The University’s annual Week of Welcome was extended to two weeks this year, giving students more time to explore different organizations on campus. Latasha Lewis, programming assistant for the Ferguson Center, said the goal is to get students out and about on campus and exploring their options.
