Transfer Affinity Groups are a way for transfer students to connect with other transfer students who share similar identities & backgrounds. Transfer Affinity Groups offer transfer students a way to meet people and develop friendships within the Bama Transfers community. As a member of an affinity group, students will receive an invitation to a GroupMe for their specific affinity group and/or receive resources & information pertinent to their affinity group. Students can join more than one Transfer Affinity Group.
This year, Bama Transfers will start with three Transfer Affinity Groups. A description of each Affinity Group is below.
This affinity group is for transfer students who are starting a new legacy as the first in their family to go to college!
This affinity group is for students who identify as a person of color and seek to be in community with other transfer students of color.
This affinity group is for transfer students who have made the state of Alabama their new home away from home! If you are an out-of-state student or an international student, this Affinity Group is for you.
