Greetings from UNA!

VPEM Newsletter

Welcome to the inaugural e-newsletter. The University of North Alabama is excited to share the news that we will be communicating with you more often. An e-newsletter will be coming your way each quarter. As you can imagine, my first few months on the job have been a whirlwind. I am honored to join the UNA family. I have been re-familiarizing myself with the University of North Alabama and the Shoals and all the rich history and traditions, building relationships with my colleagues in my division (e.g., Admissions, Registrar, Student Financial Services, and University Success Center) and across campus. UNA broke three records this fall! We enrolled a record new first time freshmen cohort class of 1,177 (compared to 1,159 last fall). We also have a record of 1,397 living on campus this fall. Last, we have a record 7,492 overall enrolled students compared to 7,323 fall 2007. This fall, we enrolled a very strong academic class. Our average academic profile this year was: 3.27 GPA and 23 ACT. We are working hard to recruit the fall 2017 class. The admission staff is traveling throughout Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Our current student population is diverse and is represented from 40 states and 37 international countries. According to, Florence, Alabama is considered one the best college towns in the south. We are excited about all of the excellent opportunities that are available to your students. Roar Lions!
