Let’s kick off the year with some fun! Connect Fest aims to provide opportunities for new UAB students to engage with their peers and staff through interactive activities, student organization interactions, food, music, and more. This event is also an opportunity for new students to practice living the Blazer Way. The Blazer Way is the university creed and encourages the UAB community to live out its tenets: honor & integrity, innovation, diversity, scholarship, and service.

Connect Fest is hosted by the office of Student Involvement & Leadership in coordination with the Blazer Spirit Council, Blazer Productions Assistants, and UAB Pathfinders.
