Roll Tide! Welcome to the online home of the Broward County Chapter of The University of Alabama Alumni Association. This chapter is an organization for all Broward County area alumni and fans.


We regularly organize events for our local Alumni, Friends of the University and local UA Students. Each fall our website will list our Chapters game watching parties for a few of our bigger nationally televised football games.  In addition, we organize an annual South Florida Student Recruiting Reception at a local hotel and host a Freshman Send-Off Cookout for our new local students attending the University each fall. We need a number of Alumni volunteers to staff these events and coordinate various roles with our local Student Recruitment Coordinator, Casie Tate, so please join in and help support us with your time.

As you visit our new website, please share it with other local University of Alabama supporters. You will find that our local chapter is a fun group of Alabama supporters who enjoy celebrating UA's rich tradition of excellence in all that we do. Please reach out to us and revisit the website often for updates!
