UAB CAS HomecomingFrom art exhibitions by Bachelor of Fine Arts students to Department of Theatre performances, from Homecoming to recognition of alumni and student awards, fall was a busy time in the College.

Filled with color, joy, and enthusiasm, the semester featured our winning departmental teams during Homecoming Week (Government won the Door Decoration Contest and Biology took home Best Dressed Gurney in the annual Gurney Derby), and faculty, staff, and students in Warhol costume in the Parade, promoting the Warhol: Fabricated show at the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts.

We hosted this year’s Alumni Awards, had fun at the Senior Sendoff just before commencement, and celebrated our accomplished students at the Scholarship and Awards Luncheon.

The semester ended with the faculty Book Party at which 20 professors were honored for their publishing achievements during the year.
