Campus Strictness: Campus strictness is generally tight but only to ensure the health of the students, specifically on underage drinking.

Athletics: The amount of school pride in sporting events is enormous and it is possible to go to as many events as you want. However if you are not into athletic events you can still find things to do on campus instead.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are all very close to classes and are generally well-kept and clean. They are all very social if you get involved and the application process is easy. Some dorms are more expensive to live in but you get what you pay for.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's not a great school in terms of academics. A lot of kids are not very smart. But it is a good school. I got a lot of money to come here and got a degree that will benefit me just as much as one that would have cost a whole lot more somewhere else. It's also a really fun place to be year-round. Join greek life if you like to party at all.

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.
