Bama Year One Logo

Bama Year One, service and leadership small groups provide first-year and transfer students the opportunity to learn from current student leaders and discuss important leadership topics in a relaxed environment, and engage in the community through service together. Small groups of 15-20 students will be placed with an upperclassmen student leader team who have experience serving in various roles and campus organizations. These small group leaders will serve as a mentor and guide to their group throughout their first year at the Capstone. Groups will meet 8 times in the Fall semester and 5 times in the Spring semester. Each group will be filled on a first come, first served basis and students may select the group, day, and time that best fits their schedule.
