Sample Schedules from Parent & Family Orientation

In an effort to improve Bama Bound and Parent & Family Orientation programming, communication and customer service, we have designed a new Bama Bound mobile app via the Guidebook platform. We are excited about this new addition and hope our guests will benefit from its implementation.*Please remember that posted schedules are tentative and final schedules will be given at orientation check-in.
