4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The only con is the prices. If you want a safe apartment that doesn't have mold you will be paying the big bucks ($600-900)

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is good if you are involved and not so great if you're on the outside. Greek students control the SGA and have a lot of influence so non-greek students do not always have a voice on issues with power behind it.

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.
