Each year we partner with The University of Alabama Student Center to host Organization Takeover, a complementary event to continue the momentum of Get On Board Day (GOBD). The two-day event occurs the week after GOBD each fall and spring. During this time, student organizations register to take over The University of Alabama Student Center from 5 – 9 p.m. each night to host one of three activities:

  1. The organization’s first meeting
  2. A meet and greet
  3. A demonstration, workshop, and/or performance

The first night of Spring OTO will be held in the UA Student Center. The second night will be held virtually. Meeting links and schedules will be posted upon confirmation.

There is no cost for organizations or students to attend Organization Takeover sessions.

Fall Dates

  • Tuesday, September 6, 2022 from 5 – 9 p.m. (In person)
  • Wednesday, September 7, 2022 from 5 – 9 p.m. (In person)

Student Organization Sign Up

Space and time slots are available on a first come first serve basis. Student organizations can sign up for Organization Takeover here.
