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.

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.
