I'm a junior at UA majoring in Marine Conservation and Environemental Science through the New College. Within the New College, I have the ability to take control of my courses and work closely with my advisor to plan out the best path for me and my future. This spring, I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad for a semester at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. While there, I took unique classes such as Corals and Coral Reefs, and Beaches, Reefs and Climate Change, as well as volunteer at a stranding lab in Kaneohe Bay. It was my first time on the island, and every place I went was more breathtaking than the last! The ocean was so clear and blue, and I went on a different hike almost every weekend. This picture is from my first hike, Kuli'ou'ou Ridge. It was about 2.5 miles to the top, but the view was stunning. My friends and I even went to the Big Island one weekend, where we got to see one of four green sand beaches in the entire world! UA has provided me with such great opportunities and experiences that I will forever be grateful for.

Alexis Van Winkle


Hey Y'all,
My name is Alexis Van Winkle and I am a Sophomore at the University of Alabama. Ever since I stepped foot on campus, I have looked for possibilities to expand my involvement in campus life beyond the classroom. Some of my activities include competing on the Equestrian Team, obtaining my Scuba Diving license and then being elected as the Treasurer for the Crimson Dive Club, working for UA Housing as a Resident Advisor, and becoming a member of the Premedical Honor Society, Alpha Epsilon Delta. I spend the majority of my time working hard on my studies, but I do make time for CrossFit workouts, Alabama Football Games, and riding my horse. I have absolutely loved my time at the University of Alabama and I continue to explore the many and varied opportunities that UA provides  -   which is truly what college is about! Roll Tide!
