Thanks to everyone who participated in the Homecoming Festivities!


SON-WINSThis year's Homecoming theme was "Our Town, Our Team," the SON showed team spirit in a big way - the front of the school was decked in Blazer Pride!  From a 10 ft tall, pomped Vulcan statue to building-sized murals designed by the SON's own Heather de la Piedra - the SON students, faculty, and staff did Homecoming RIGHT!

The SON took first place in the campus-wide Building Decoration Competition and won the 2012 Blazer Pride

The School’s faculty and staff were surprised to find their headshots on the football mural cheering on our football team consisting of the Dean and Associate  Deans…Dr. Harper, Dr. Moneyham,  Dr. Selleck, and Dr. Meneses


 4th semester students served  as cheerleaders leading the SON team to a victory.  A special thanks to all the students, staff, and faculty that participated in the Homecoming festivities.Vulcan-students











Gurney-2Nurses on the Move!

"The CRNA Gas Passers”
represented the School in the Gurney Derby competition.  Congratulations to team members Aaron Ainsworth, Elizabeth Fuller, Jessica Diamond, and Michael McReynolds for placing 5th in the race. 

This year is the first year that the UAB’s CRNA students raced for the SON.  In August 2012, the program moved from the SHP to the SON to link it more closely to other advanced-practice nursing programs and better align its research, practice and education outcomes.  

Thanks to CRNA Student Gurney Racing Team and a special thank you to Todd Hicks for being the "Nurse-on-call" for the Gurney Race.

Burgers on the Plaza

SA-Big-WigsHomecoming 2012 marked the beginning of a new tradtion in the SON and SHP- a joint cookout was held on the recently renovated plaza.  Burgers, beans, and fixin's were enjoyed by faculty and staff from both schools.  Cookout activities included a photo booth and a corn-hole toss.

Student Affairs Administration joined in the festivities - enjoying the food and the new plaza!

Recent transplant from Penn State, Dr. Rita Jablonski joined right in showing her Blazer Pride - serving up tasty vittles and decked out head to toe in Blazer-wear - even Blazer jewelry!
