At the start of the fall and spring semesters we invite our new and returning Blazers to join us for Blazer Welcome! Blazer Welcome is designed to assist first year students in their transition to UAB by offering programs and opportunities that cover a multitude of topics from getting involved and learning about UAB to staying safe and navigating the campus. This year, Blazer Welcome has gone mobile— find our app in the App Store!

The Office of Parent & Family Services in conjunction with many departments around campus will be hosting a Fall Family Weekend from October 7 – 9, 2016. We hope you can come back to visit campus, engage in a variety of programming, meet faculty and staff members, and most importantly visit with your student.

Move-in weekend can be hectic! Stay organized and de-stressed with these tips on how to make your move-in the best it can be.

Greetings from the UAB Division of Student Affairs! I have just completed my first year as the vice president for the Division, and am honored to be a member of the Blazer family. During these last twelve months, I have been invigorated by the passion and commitment of our team of nearly 100 student affairs professionals who are committed to creating transformational experiences for our students.
