Every year, colleges and universities around the nation celebrate National Transfer Student Week. This year, FYE is recognizing our transfer students with “Celebrate Your Bama Story”! During the week of October 21 – 25, FYE and Retention Initiatives will host a series of events to engage and recognize transfer students at The University of Alabama. A list of events is below.
