5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: We are the best at football and we are very good at many other sports such as baseball and basketball.

3 College Student

Transportation: It is very good. I love how their are many buses and shuttles around. I also have a truck on campus

4 College Student

Facilities: Athletic Centers – Our school just built a brand new 10 million dollar athletic complex which is very nice

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Foods around my school is that of McDonald's and Arbys. I usually go to McDonald's because it is the closes and most affordable.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are some great homes to rent and apartments many of which are walking distance from campus!

4 College Student

Campus Dining: A little bit of something for everyone and there are some great local resteraunts. Though if your a vegeterian like me, rememeber this is the south.

5 College Student

Facilities: A very beautiful campus! Though a real college experiance if you plan on living in dorms like Tut.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking permits are very expensive, I believe they are somewhere around 200 dollars for a year. If you take into consideration how much tuition we have to pay, we should not be charged for parking.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at the University of Alabama are very good, especially our football team.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have joined a sorority and I have made a ton of friends and I absolutely love every part of it. The football games take over the campus and it is the best part of the year. ROLL TIDE!!!

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Alabama football takes over the town during the fall. It is an absolutely amazing experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The quad becomes a mass of tents and televisions and tailgating and it is just awesome. There is always so much to do on campus and off campus and the campus is beautiful.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers at the University of Alabama are all excellent and up to date. There are brand new computers in some of the labs, but sometimes it gets a little crowded. But the wireless connection is also great everywhere on campus.

4 College Student

Facilities: What attracted me the most to the University of Alabama was its surrounding campus. It truly is a "college town", the town is centered around the campus not vice versa. It is 33% (don't quote me) greek, and offers many different organizations along with that. Apart from the football stadium row, my favorite part of the campus is the quad which offers a perfect balance to nature and campus. It represents that the college contains both a place to have fun and be academically challenged.

3 College Student

Weather: Summer is hot and humid. Not a problem for me since I am from Florida, but if you are coming up from the north--beware.

Winter time was most brutal for me. Not too harsh, but when it rained it was very cold!

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Planning to rush? Tutwiler is your best bet girls. An all female dorm, Tut holds 966 freshmen women. Seems like a lot. But the location is hard to beat.

Possible Cons:
Community bathrooms
--they are not as bad as one would think, but if you have any doubts... just bring some shower sandals ;) !
Slow Elevators
--I believe it is 12 or 13 floors, pick a low floor ladies, as it takes quite awhile to call an elevator when the dorm is in full swing. But the elevators are quite fast when riding.

Food Options
--No biggie. There's no deli or restaurant below (unlike other surrounding dorms), but there are snack machines and a connivence store along with an University Supply Store.

Pros:
Furniture/Organization
I thought the rooms were nicely equipped for a dorm as each room has a mini fridge/freezer with microwave (less for you to pack/dispose of later).
Closet space is nice and there are built in drawers.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION:
You seriously can't beat the fact that this dorm is right on sorority row. Not to mention that it is
within walking distance to the football stadium.

Summary: If you're looking for a college social experience, I would recommend this dorm with all my heart.

Campus Strictness: I feel as if all of the policies are fair. I personally feel secure when I am on campus because of the strictness of these policies. The campus police are very fair and understanding. They put safety first. This surely impressed my mother.

5 College Student

Greek Life: greek life is diversed and welcomed in the communities. It is looked upon as a great chance to socialize and to be part of great organizations.

5 College Student

Nightlife: Fraternity/Sority Parties – Ther are always fraternity or sorority parties going on. It is a good mixture of ages, races, religions, and ethnic backgrounds.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: AS ANYONE MAY KNOW DRUGS ARE EVERYWHERE AND EASY TO COME BY.IS DRUGS ON CAMPUS VISUAL NO!, BUT THERE ARE DRUG ACTIVITY GOING ON.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: THE GIRLS AND GUYS – THE GIRLS AND GUYS AT ALABAMA ARE FRIENDLY.IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO MEET NEW PEOPLE AND WHEN YOU COME TO ALABAMA THEY MAKES YOU FEEL WELCOMED.

4 College Senior

Diversity: GETTING ACCEPTANCE IS NOT EASY, BUT IF YOU WORK HARD YOU WILL SUCCEED.I DINT SEE ANY SIGN OF RACISM ON THE CAMPUS.EVERYONE ACCEPTS YOU THE WAY YOU ARE.THAT'S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ALABAMA

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Before I came here, I had no intention in following in my mom and older brother's footsteps. Once I got here, I have never regretted my decision for a single moment. The fall semester is especially wonderful because of our National Championship winning football program. The whole campus unites on Saturdays to tailgate on the Quad and enjoy all of our wins in Bryant Denny Stadium. The social scene is a lot of fun here, and the academics are top notch. I could've gone to a number of other schools on full scholarships, but I am so glad that I got to find not only a school but a home at the University of Alabama.

3 College Junior

Academics: As a student in the business college, there are a lot of opportunities to network with other business majors and alumni from the University. There are so very difficult classes that you have to take, but chances are you will make friends to study with for these classes. And the great teachers in certain courses make all the hard work worth it. The buildings are very nice, and the business library is the best on campus.

2 College Senior

Transportation: Central Alabama Community College has no buses offered and no taxi available. However, everyone pretty much has a car. There is one building complex of apartments and only athletes use them. That apartment building is located across the street from the campus so if an athlete does not have a ride he or she can walk to class unless it's raining or cold. As a result of this, they will catch a ride with a teammate.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most of the student population is greek. I guess there is some greek unity occasionally. I'm non-greek and I view greeks cool people. I have no problem with them

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.
