UWA Timeline Story Submission Schedule of Events 175th Anniversary Merchandise News Links

In 2010, The University of West Alabama celebrates its 175th anniversary. Founded only five years after the signing of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek between the Choctaw nation and the United States, Livingston Female Academy was created in 1835 to educate potential teachers for west Alabama. Today, students obtain degrees through not only the Julia S. Tutwiler College of Education, but also the College of Business, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the Division of Nursing and the College of Graduate Studies. In addition, many of UWA’s students complete their studies through a vibrant online program. This year, the University honors the connections between yesterday, today and tomorrow and invites everyone to be a part of the celebration.
