It's more than a week. It's the excitement you bring and the Blazer pride you share. Don't miss out on being a part of Homecoming 2015.
The theme for 2015 is BLAZER STRONG - Go UAB. Go Blazers. Go Birmingham.
This year, the UAB National Alumni Society is excited to be able to have Hoops on the Haasephalt as the featured Homecoming event. Hoops on the Haasephalt will tip off on Thursday, October 8 at 7:00 p.m. on the Campus Green.
Shirley Salloway Kahn, Ph.D., Wes Smith, Michael Grier, Eric Jack, Ph.D., Gillian Goodrich, and Lois and Barry Luther were honored by the NAS for their personal, academic and professional achievements, service to the community, and philanthropy.
UAB Alumna Ashley M. Jones will be honored in New York City on September 18 as a 2015 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' award recipient.
Jones is one of a half dozen emerging women who has been singled out for the award and its accompanying $30,000 grant.
Honored for her poetry, the 2012 UAB graduate is currently working on Magic City Gospel, a collection of poems examining history, identity, religion, race, and gender.
Hunt graduated from UAB in May 2008 with a bachelor's degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences.
The one-time Blazer quarterback will be hitting the road when Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert start a new stadium tour. Hunt and Old Dominion will be along for the ride.
Hunt has enjoyed a meteoric rise with three Billboard number one songs - "Leave the Night On," "Take Your Time," and most recently "House Party." All three are off his debut album, Montevallo.
While the dates of the 2016 tour have not been released, be sure to keep an eye on Hunt's official website for updates. To see where Hunt's current schedule is taking him, click HERE.
