Second-Year Experience is proud to host the SYE Halfway There Celebration! This unique event welcomes UAB second-year students to come out and commemorate reaching the halfway mark to graduation. Coordinated by UAB Student Housing and Residence Life, Second-Year Experience aims to support and empower second-year students to become more involved with the UAB campus community.


SYE Halfway There Celebration will take place on April 18 from
5-7 p.m. in the Blazer RLC (lower level) and the Commons Plaza. In the case of inclement weather, the celebration will be held in the RLC. All second-year students, based on number of years at UAB or credit hours, will receive a ticket via email by April 11. With each ticket, attendees will receive a complimentary swag bag and be entered to win a special giveaway.

The cookout will feature burgers, hot dogs, vegetarian-friendly food options and more, and Blaze Radio will be on site dropping the latest beats. If you haven’t had a chance to take a coveted selfie with Blaze, don’t worry; Blaze the dragon will host a photo booth to help compliment your Instagram aesthetic.

Don’t miss the opportunity to reward yourself for an excellent semester. Second-year students, you’re one step closer to graduation!
