The Avanti Team

The name “Avanti” comes from the Italian word for forward, as in to go forward. Founded in 1975, the Avanti Team is a distinguished student service organization that assists new students to The University of Alabama in moving ahead with higher education aspirations.

Well-acquainted with UA’s academic programs and co-curricular opportunities, the Avanti Team provides essential support to incoming students and welcomes high school groups to campus for large-scale recruitment events.
