The chapter is devoted to supporting the University academically by assisting with the recruitment of local high school seniors and awarding four scholarships.
University of Alabama recruiters cover the state of Georgia attending college fairs and promoting the University to high school seniors. During the busy fall semester, they often must choose between schedule-conflicting events. To assist with University recruiting, the chapter operates a recruiting committee who assists the regional recruiters by attending college fairs in the Atlanta area that they cannot attend. If you are interested in learning more about the recruiting committee, please contact email BamaInAtlanta@gmail.com .
