‘Celebrating achievement’ for national honors. “Celebrating Achievement,” a new song designed to publicly recognize and celebrate students, faculty and staff who achieve national recognition, awards and honors, is being played on the Denny Chimes today in honor of the UA gymnastics team. The team won its second consecutive NCAA championship in April and sixth overall. Team members will receive national championship rings during halftime of Saturday’s football game at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Listen for “Celebrating Achievement” today at noon, 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Know how to “get in the game.” The Crimson Tide football team will play Ole Miss Saturday, Sept. 29, at 8:15 p.m. in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Students who currently have tickets or need tickets to the game will want to know how to “Get in the Game,” how the changes to the way student tickets are handled, how to enter the stadium (Gate 31 only) and how parking near the stadium affects them. For more information on the changes, visit the following sites: Action Card Office (click on My Tickets UA) or http://uagameday.com.
Game-day parking reminder. On game-day weekends during football season, many parking lots are used for Tide Pride and game-day parking. The following lots and areas must be vacated by 5 p.m. on Fridays of all home games: Colonial Drive south of Eighth Street, the south one-third section of the Coleman Coliseum lot, the Tutwiler main lot and “triangle” lot, the lower Student Recreation Center lot, the Northeast Campus Drive lot and the large lot east of the Moody Music Building. Click here for a map that shows the parking-lot closures.
An added note regarding game-day parking. Students with orange residential parking permits who normally park in the Tutwiler, Northeast Stadium or Colonial Drive lots will be able to gain temporary access to the Ferguson or Campus Drive parking decks from noon until midnight on the Fridays before a home football game. To gain free access, students can swipe their Action Cards in the A-slot in one of the two decks. Students should not use the B-slot or $5 will be deducted from their Bama Cash accounts. Action Cards will be activated each Friday before a home game. Students must return their vehicles to an orange residential zone by 7 a.m. on the Monday following the game.
Supe store to be closed for inventory. All locations of the University Supply Store will be closed Sunday and Monday, Sept. 30-Oct. 1, to conduct inventory. All locations will reopen on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 8 a.m. unless recounts are required.
