Second-Year Experience


Second-Year Experience

Welcome to your second year of school at the University of Alabama in Huntsville!

We are so happy that you are back and we are looking forward to another great year with you.

The University assigns a high priority to a student’s second year of college because the second year solidifies the foundation begun in the first year.
During the second year, students are focused on establishing personal and educational identities. As a result, students engage in activities in and
outside of the classroom moving them towards establishing future directions of study and growth.   

The Second-Year Experience at UAH consists of a variety of programs and opportunities designed specifically for second-year students. The goal
is to help students be successful, have fun and get the most out of their UAH experience.
