ipadSo the holidays are over and you didn’t get the Apple iPad 2 you desperately wanted? The UAB School of Business wants to hook you up!

We’re kicking off 2012 (and what we expect to be a great year) by giving away a FREE iPad to one lucky UAB student at the UAB-Memphis Bartow Classic on January 7, 2012. If there’s a better way to start off the Spring Term, we don’t know it!

Here’s the game plan:

We’ll draw the name of one lucky student shortly after tip-off at the Bartow Classic, the most anticipated UAB men’s basketball game of the year vs. arch rival Memphis. To be eligible, students must do three things:

  • Be enrolled at UAB in the Spring 2012 term
  • Fill out and submit an entry form at the game
  • Be present at the game when their name is announced

Oh yeah, the winner must also be comfortable with the spotlight, as they’ll have 9,000+ eyes and a TV camera on them when presented with the iPad on the court!  Need to see the Official Entry Rules? Read them here.

Now, we realize that only one student can win the iPad. That means 1,199 other students won’t. So in addition to the iPad, the School of Business is giving away a green #GoBlazers t-shirt to every student in the student section so we can all show our Blazer spirit on television with a student section GREEN OUT! Many thanks to Snoozy's Bookstore for making our t-shirt sponsorship possible!!

Be sure to get to Bartow Arena early on January 7 (if you don’t camp out the night before). You don’t want to miss out on your free t-shirt and your chance to win a brand new iPad 2! In the meantime, check out the UAB School of Business on Facebook and learn awesome and practical ways to use an iPad at UAB.

Go Blazers!!
