Welcome to The University of Alabama and Bama Wesley! We’re so excited that you’ve chosen Alabama, and hope to have the chance to meet you soon.

Bama Wesley is the United Methodist campus ministry at The University of Alabama. Whether you’ve grown up United Methodist, as part of some other faith tradition, or have never been in church before, we want to be a place on campus where you’ll feel at home and can find a community to be part of during your time in Tuscaloosa.

Week of Welcome

Week of Welcome is the best way to check out Bama Wesley, meet our current students and staff, and generally, have some fun as soon as you get to campus. We’ll have something for you to do nearly every day beginning the weekend before classes start.

We’re still finalizing our schedule for the week, so if you want to make sure you’re in the loop and haven’t already signed up for emails at Bama Bound, just fill out this form:

For Students

Heading off to college can be incredibly exciting, but also a little scary. We get it and, more importantly, we’ve been right where you are now. At Bama Wesley, you’ll find a place where we have lots of fun together – whether that’s through retreats, intramurals, or just hanging out between classes – but mostly we’re a community where you can find your place on campus.

For Parents

We know, you’re proud of your son or daughter but are also a little nervous about sending them off to college. In addition to creating a community for your child to be a part of during their time in Tuscaloosa, we want to put your mind at rest about what they’re up to. Feel free to check out who we are at Bama Wesley on this site and, if you have questions, click here and we’ll be in touch. Want to get emails from us throughout the school year? Just fill out the form below.

P.S. You’ll definitely want to be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Especially the first couple of weeks we’ll be sharing a lot on there, and you might just see a familiar face!
