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 samples. Final schedules will be given at orientation check-in.

To access the Bama Bound App, download Guidebook to your smart phone or tablet (the app is free), search for University of Alabama Bama Bound and download.

Features of the Bama Bound Guidebook include:

  • Bama Bound schedules for every session (includes Student, Parent and Sibling)
  • Pre and Post Orientation Checklists
  • Campus, Ferg and Rec Center Maps
  • Capability for guests to personalize their own schedule and checklist
  • Campus Resource and Capstone Connections Information
  • Capability to push out schedule updates, room change notifications, etc.
