Studying in Alabama

The state of Alabama offers international students the opportunity to experience a unique blend of diverse American identities. This mix includes intimate exposure to African American cultural heritage (the state having played an influential role during the famous American Civil Rights Movement), as well as some of the nation's constituency of religiously-oriented (Christian) political cultures. In these and other ways, Alabama offers international students a wide range of experiences and real world opportunities that can serve to enrich their travel abroad experience.

Here's a regram of senior Bethany Fronk's last home game on Sunday. Our student athletes truly give it their all when wearing black and gold. Forward, Ever Bethany.

Well guys, today's the day. The last day I get to play with you guys on the field that has been my home for the past 4 years. The word sad can't describe to anyone the feeling I know I will have after our games today. However, I am beyond thankful and blessed to have gotten the opportunity to play at Panther Stadium with the many teammates I've had over the years, but especially this group of girls. Thank you guys so much for loving and supporting me through this final year and for becoming not only my teammates, but my family. 💛 #yeahSouthern -@Fronkaroni
