Saturday, May 20th, 2023 at 11:00am, the Rookies of the Regenerate Society, Inc. will be hosting an event for high school juniors and seniors to learn from the experiences of college professionals and students about the “behind-the-scenes” of true college life! The panel will take place at the Hill Student Center on the campus of the University of Alabama-Birmingham. We encourage everyone to attend!

The event will feature opportunities to connect both students AND parents with resources that will assist their future college students to thrive. The program will feature two separate panels for both parents and students, which will feature panelists that are currently in school or specialize in student services with students.

This is event held in co-sponsorship with UAB’s Blazer Male Excellence Network or BMEN.

Purpose of event

Each year, our first-year members or “rookies” are tasked with coordinating and executing their own original service initiative.
