4 College Freshman

Computers: We've got plenty of computer labs, and our main library is open 24 hours per day, 5 days per week!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Roll Tide Roll! That is a phrase you WILL hear everyday during football season, as The Crimson Tide is the best team in the country! Also the fitness center here is easily one of the best in the country.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: As one can imagine, big fraternity parties have lots of alcohol.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: We have buses that will take you anywhere you need to go, campus is beautiful and so are the areas around campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness here can be summed up into one phrase; strict but fair.

College Freshman

Parking: Since I don't have a car, I don't know how good or bad the whole parking thing is.

3 College Freshman

Weather: One day it will be 70 degrees and totally sunny, then the next will be 55 degrees and it'll rain all day.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls here will drive you a good kind of crazy.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm building (Presidential Village) is amazing! I have my own spacious bedroom, along with a common area that consists of a kitchen, full sized fridge, and a living room.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: We have the option of living at our own houses, gated communities, and apartments. The fact that we have so many choices to make on our own in terms of where you live is fantastic!

4 College Freshman

Academics: Being an undecided major at this point, I have been taking mostly core classes. Some were difficult, and others were not. However, none have been impassable or unmanageable.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life here at the University of Alabama is not only huge, but it also plays a large role in how the school is run. I for one, love that. Being involved with Greek life myself, it is the best thing I have ever joined and so far I have no regrets.

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: My school's town is incredible, but I would not like to live here. I would prefer to live in a bigger city; however, my school is in a great place, and maybe some day I will change my mind and decided to move back!

3 College Student

Greek Life: Many Greeks are pretentious, but there are some who are enjoyable to be around. The biggest problem I and many other non-Greeks encounter is the fact that the majority of Greeks believe they hold some sort of power over the rest of us.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Many students are obvious about the fact that they partake in the use of drugs. Others, on the other hand, stay a little more low-key in their uses.

4 College Student

Diversity: The diversity on campus is just short of great. Apart from a select few, the vast majority of the students on campus are very accepting of others.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The classes are demanding, but you should be able to manage them. Every major is different of course, but I am in Mechanical Engineering. It's hard, but I like my classes.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You'll really enjoy living in the dorms as a freshman, but after your first year, you'll probably want your own place. They are really nice places, and are really close to your classes.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Generally, the ladies here are very pretty. There are so many people here that you can find who you want.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is really big here. I have met so many people made a lot of friends through it. It's an incredible experience I would definitely recommend. It's by no means necessary, though. I have friends who aren't greek too.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am a freshman, so I have not had the chance to have an internship yet. But the co-op education program here is very big and offers a lot of opportunities. Many engineering employers look for students who have co-oped.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I really enjoy my classes so far. They are difficult but still manageable.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's awesome. There are plenty of fraternity band parties and date parties. The bars are pretty popular too.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It feels great outside during the fall and spring. Summers get a little hot, though.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: 5 teams currently ranked in the top 10.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

University of Alabama students constantly brag about their school’s traditions and spirit, and their pride is shown throughout the town. Some say it’s the incredible education that drew them here, and others say it’s Bama football that brought them to this Southern school. But no matter what reason these students choose to come to UA, most believe it was the best choice they could have made.

After graduation, some students get a job, some further their education by going to UA’s grad school, and some even go to UA’s law school. No matter what the students decide to do with their future, they believe Bama has prepared them for it. Students advise upcoming freshmen to walk around the Quad, visit the Strip, or watch a football game to understand why so many love UA.
