The Camp 1831 experience provides first-year students with the opportunity to make friends, have fun, and develop the pride that comes with being a UA student. Through Camp 1831, first-year students will explore where they fit in this new environment and feel part of the UA family before they ever step foot in the classroom.

Participants are led by The A-Team, current UA students who are passionate about supporting the transition to the first year of college. These students offer their personal insight, advice, and give tips for having a fun and successful college experience.

Camp 1831 participants have a head start in making connections with other UA students, faculty, and staff. Students leave Camp 1831 feeling prepared and excited for their first year!
