Thank You 

The Fall ’16 and Spring ’17 GOBD experiences were a success

Check back with us soon for details about Fall Get On Board Day, which will be held on Tuesday, August 31, 2017 from 5:30pm-9:00pm.  For those who have never participated in GOBD, it is an opportunity to engage with UA and the community, discover new possibilities,  and to learn new skills through joining student organizations.  More information for students interested in attending will be distributed this summer and registration for organizations/departments and community vendors will begin in late Spring.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Ashley Cofield, Coordinator of Student Involvement at 205-348-2002 or amcofield@ua.edu.

Get On Board Day, hosted by The Source, is held near the beginning of the fall and spring semesters each year. GOBD draws large crowds of students and faculty members to learn about a great number of our campus groups. From the large number represented, students can connect with the organizations that are most interesting to them. Participating organizations include interest areas such as military, political, advocacy, service, honorary, professional, recreational, social, and religious groups.
