The Capstone Men and Women are a group of students selected to serve as official ambassadors of The University of Alabama. They have been part of the University’s public-relations program since 1962. Originally named the Crimson Girls, the organization accepted its first male members in 1976 and changed its name to the Crimson Girls and Capstone Men. In 1991, the name of the group was changed to Capstone Men and Women.
The Capstone Men and Women ensure an extra measure of hospitality at The University of Alabama, making visitors feel they have experienced a truly exceptional place. They provide a warm reception for guests and communicate to them a better understanding of all aspects of the University. Capstone Men and Women assist the University president’s office, admissions, and alumni during functions held on campus and in other locations, as well as host daily tours of the campus for prospective students and other visitors.
