The 49:                 

"The 49” is a student coordinating body that works to connect out-of-state students with opportunities for campus/community involvement, mentorship programs, and social activities. The mission of "The 49" is to help acclimate out-of-state students to The University of Alabama, to cultivate relationships and dialogue between out-of-state students, and to foster a campus community that is welcoming and inclusive of all students.  "The 49” will advocate for issues and policies important to out-of-state students, while also promoting an awareness of the many ways out-of-state students contribute to The University of Alabama community.
