 Rekindle Your Heart

Alumni Memories of Place and People

"During the fall of 1963, Mobile College began its first academic year. This was a giant step into the realm of higher education and it made a new way of life available for many students. This first year at Mobile College shall always be hallmarked as the light that opened the world to these people, as well as to the ones who shall follow in the years to come...We hope that some of the spirit that filled Mobile College that first year may be rekindled in your heart."
