Favorite place on campus

E.J. Thomas Hall holds a very special place in my heart. As an avid musical theatre fan, I am thrilled that UA students, faculty, staff and community members have the opportunity to enjoy national tours of Broadway musicals right here on campus. I’ve seen A Chorus Line, Mamma Mia!, Beauty and the Beast, and Rock of Ages in E.J. – just to name a few! Commencement also takes place here, so there is a great deal of nostalgia associated with this facility as well.

Nonverbal communication

Best question for students to ask when they visit campus

Asking about deadlines is always wise. From when the best time to apply is, to the due date for the on-campus housing application, these are very important questions to consider. Being proactive in the college search and enrollment process is essential, and we are here to help you do just that!
