Lucy’s Legacy is a living-learning community (LLC) for women interested in exploring the historical significance and experiences of women of color at The University of Alabama. This living-learning community is named in honor of Dr. Autherine Lucy Foster, the first African-American student to attend The University of Alabama. As a member of this community, you will be part of a group of first-year women who enroll in a shared academic course, benefit from mentoring and resources, and form a peer group to share in their freshman year experience. Additionally, the Lucy’s Legacy community has a group of sophomore-senior level peer mentors to support the women in the community, as well as a resident advisor (RA) who was once a first-year Lucy’s Legacy student herself. Lucy’s Legacy is currently housed in John England Jr. Hall. Women interested in being a part of Lucy’s Legacy should complete the application that is linked in the section below.
