The first few weeks of college life transition are critical for student success.  UNA Mane Month is our campus-wide effort to host and promote opportunities for students to connect with each other, the campus, and the faculty, staff and community partners that make it a special place.  

If you are interested in becoming a financial sponsor for this initiative, give us your information using the form linked below and a staff member from Student Engagement will reach out to discuss opportunities to support.  No level of support is too small.
