Unpack The Pride

We Need Your Help!

Unpack The Pride is the kick-off event to MANE Month at University of North Alabama. We invite faculty, staff, students, alumni, individuals, and organizations from UNA and the Shoals to help us welcome the Class of 2023 and our returning students as they arrive on campus and move into the residence halls. Volunteers are encouraged to bring smiles, muscles, and PURPLE PRIDE to ensure this event serves as a great beginning to the year. Volunteers will be provided with a free t-shirt! Roar Lions!
