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.
