Founders Week at UM

This week marks the 111th observance of Founders Day at the University of Montevallo. In addition to Thursday's official ceremony at 11:00 a.m. in the McChesney Student Activity Center there are a number of events on campus this week, including:
  • Spruce-Up Day this afternoon, coordinated by the Environmental Club
  • The inaugural Heritage Concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, in LeBaron Recital Hall featuring the Miami String Quartet
  • “Battle of the Bands,” which will tentatively include at least five bands competing Wednesday evening, Oct. 10, at the Alabama Coach Company restaurant (time: TBA)
  • The hiding of the Crook, a UM tradition since 1926
  • The 10th annual Life Raft Debate on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. in the McChesney Student Activity Center
You can always celebrate the founding of UM at your campus library. Perennial favorites in our collection include Years Rich and Fruitful: University of Montevallo 1896-1996, by former library director and UM alum Mary Frances Tipton, and White Columns & Red Brick: the University of Montevallo Buildings, by Lucille Griffith.
