First Year Experience and Parent Programs
Mission Statement

First Year Experience and Parent Programs will support the successful academic and social transition of new students and families into the University of Alabama community.
Transition: "Any event, or non-event, that results in changed relationships, routines, assumptions, and roles...stress the role of perception in transitions...transition exists only if it is so defined by the individual experiencing it."

(Schlossberg et al., 1995, as cited in Evans, Forney, and Gido-DiBrito, 1998, p.111)
