This closure will only block access to the Physical Plant employee parking lot. To access the Student Retreat Center, tennis courts, sand volleyball court or the back of the SAC, traffic must enter the Student Retreat Drive loop across from Peck Hall.

124th Founders’ Day
On Thursday, Oct. 8, the University of Montevallo will celebrate the founding of our beloved institution and honor the success of our students, faculty, staff and alumni and their impact on campus and in the greater community.
This virtual ceremony will be available on the University of Montevallo YouTube channel at 11 a.m.
Seniors, it is time to officially don the robes that mark your entry into the Community of Scholars. Our Provost, Dr. Mary Beth Armstrong, will lead the investiture of the senior class and robe your class president. Then, it will be time to put on your academic armor and finish the journey you began several years ago.
To mark this milestone for our seniors, a photo frame will be installed in front of Palmer Hall. Stop by Oct. 7-9 in your robe and take a snapshot to share on social media using #IBelongAtMontevallo. Please remember to adhere to face-mask and social-distancing guidelines. We encourage all members of the campus community to also pose and post! To order your cap and gown, use the following link: montevallo.shopoakhalli.com/
Although we will not be shoulder-to-shoulder that day, belonging is a feeling that we carry in our heart and head, no matter where we are.
