Meet Our Bama Bound Freshmen!

Over 40 freshmen and their parents met at Fueled Collective for the 2023 Send-Off on July 23, 2023. Can you imagine the excitement of going to The University of Alabama in August?

UA Admissions, led by Kelly Watson, our Recruiter for central/Southern Ohio and northern/central Kentucky, collaborated with CrimsonAti officers and volunteers, to provide a fun-filled afternoon for freshmen and their parents. Current students (some attended to Adopt a Freshman), alumni, and other volunteers attended. Around 100 attended this event.
