The A-Team is a group of upperclassman student leaders who play a primary role in supporting incoming students and helping them feel connected to The University of Alabama. During Camp 1831, these leaders offer their personal insight and give tips for having a fun and successful college experience. The A-Team must understand what it means to be a member of the Capstone and demonstrate it to Camp 1831 participants. To prepare for their leadership experience, The A-Team spends the spring semester attending training workshops to sharpen their knowledge of UA history & traditions, campus resources, student life, and Tuscaloosa life.
