3 College Freshman

Computers: Computer availability at UA is great. You can go to one of the many libraries and find one with no trouble. Our wifi, however, is absolutely awful. It is slow and crashes all the time. There have been plenty of times where assignments have been pushed back or cancelled because of the wifi being down.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It was pretty easy getting into my program. You just have to make sure you involve yourself and join clubs.

5 College Freshman

Majors: My program is ranked in the top 5 of the country, so im pretty proud to be apart of it. They push you and help you all at the same time. There are plenty of opportunities to involve yourself in and the professors help you out with internships and such.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is awesome. You are close to everything that you need and meet a lot of great people. Some of the dorms arent the best but then again we have dorms that are absolutely beautiful. If you do everything on time its pretty easy to get what you want. The cost depends on which style you want.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: We have a really big racism problem here at UA. It was very overwhelming especially when i come from such a melting pot. If you arent white, rich and pretty, you pretty much are looked down upon. Our greek system has been in trouble because of racism twice this year.

Academics: Public Relations at UA is ranked in the top 5 in the country, I am extremely blessed to be able to learn from them and grow with their help. Im very excited to learn more and meet more of their connections. I am very hopeful that i will be getting a job right after graduation.

1 College Freshman

Parking: The parking at UA is awful. Even if you have a parking pass there are only certain places you can park. On football Saturdays, our parking usually gets taken away and there isnt anywhere for anyone to park. Its WAY too easy to get parking tickets.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Again, UA is an SEC school, we party really hard and really well. Everyone that visits always has a good time and is impressed by the way things go down here. We know how to have a good time. Roll Tide.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Im very proud of my school and why wouldnt i be? UA has some of the best facilities for athletes and non-athletes alike. The rec center is absolutely fantastic and there are other places you can go to get the work out you are looking for. Everything is clean and easy to use.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing selections are really awesome. There are a lot of great places to choose from. From apartments to houses on campus. The only problem is how expensive everything is.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Tuscaloosa isnt exactly fun when football season is not going. There isnt much to do and the closest city is 45 minutes away. Tuscaloosa is very ideal for college, just not to live afterwards.

Drug Safety: Its a college town, nonetheless a SEC school. We party hard and most people do a lot of drugs and drink a lot. But we are in college, we are allowed to make mistakes and be stupid. We are young and dumb.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Everything about the Greek life at UA is bad. The way they think, act, and accomplish things. We've been in the news a few times for our greek system, im not a big fan of it.

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys and girls at UA are greek. Literally 85% of the population are part of a sorority or fraternity. The rest are athletes and just normal students. You wear big t-shirts and norts around and the guys wear whatever they please. The party life is awesome as well as the academic life. Everyone works hard and plays even harder here.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is well-regarded here at UA.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: More scholarships for out-of-state students.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I look forward to an internship as a Journalist.

4 College Freshman

Majors: We have great professors that know a lot about the field.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Alabama doesn't know how to prepare for snow.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The shopping in Tuscaloosa is great!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the resident halls need to be renovated.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: UA needs to be more accepting of diverse groups.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Students have pride in all things athletic. Roll tide!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: UA has a beautiful campus, with great brick buildings.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They should be more strict about noise issues.

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.
