As part of recruitment efforts in the Chicago area, a “send-off” party will be held this summer for local students who have been accepted to UA in the fall. This will be a casual afternoon event (perhaps an ice cream social), and we’re looking for someone who lives in the northwest suburbs who would be willing to open their home to these students and their families. The send-off party allows the students to meet one another, establish relationships with students from their region, and have a support system in place before the semester even begins. And having the party hosted by a chapter member makes the event more personal and shows the loyalty that alums have to Alabama. Please contact the UA recruiting officer for the Chicago area, Bethany Forrest, if you are willing to volunteer your time and your home for this event: firstname.lastname@example.org. Expenses such as beverages and food will be covered by the University. Specific dates will be worked out once a volunteer has been found.
