Academics: I LOVED MY DEGREE! All my classes were great, you really get a good education if you take advantage of what bama has to offer!

Diversity: Good diversity, mostly white and back. They need to stop the promotion of segregation!! But I still enjoyed mingling with all different types of people!

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I eat very healthy so, I would not run to UA if you only eat organic foods, though you can find them here! However, the food selection over all is good, they need to work on the authenticity of the cultural foods, but I still enjoyed eating here!

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: I did not eat on campus a ton since I only lived on campus a semester and like to make my own food, however they had a ton of options and good meal plans! If you like buffet style food, they had some GOOD choices! You will like it, there is something for everyone!

Guys & Girls: Some guys and girls were very HOT, however there were many not so attractive people to. Over all though the campus is good looking though! I am not from the south, so I did not fit in perfectly, however there is a spot for everyone. People from the south have different views, personalities, etc a lot of times, if you are from else where in the US or world keep this in mind, however over all everyone nice, helpful, and just out to have a good time! A good percentage of the school is also from out of state, which is cool!

Parking: I always parked far and took the public campus bus. This always worked for me and allowed me to buy the most inexpensive parking permit. However, if you want to park closer you might have to fight more to get a spot. Don't be afraid to take the campus buses, the drivers are SO nice!

Health & Safety: I never felt unsafe on campus no matter what time it was. I am not a person who is scared of walking places at night, but still I did't feel in danger or anything ever. Everyone is very nice and people/students are always around to make you feel safe and at ease.

Drug Safety: It is the University of Alabama so you can expect some celebration drinking and maybe a little more! I am not a huge drinker and it was no problem, but people here like to drink! Either way it is fun, and you wont feel too awkward if you don't, everyone is too drunk to notice anyways.

5 Recent Alumnus

Computers: I did not use the computer labs as much as the computers in the library. But the computer labs in the library were awesome! There were a ton, and they had great internet access and the hours of operation are really nice!

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I lived in two different places off campus when I went to UA and loved them both! I live in California currently and miss the Alabama rent prices!!! Wide variety, however in my second apartment we did have a few bugs! But that might just come with the Alabama territory. Plus there are so many places to live, pick some place nice and you should not have any problems with this!

Athletics: IT IS THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA!!! WHAT DO YOU THINK!!!

Nightlife: All the club owners are super nice and friendly. The night life action can get a bit repetitive, but I had fun every time we went out and if you look good enough you will never pay for anything!!

Scholarships: Did not apply, so am not sure how the financial aid service is.

Overall Experience: I came all the way across the country from California, and though the people and culture was very different, and perhaps the hardest adjustment to make coming from the fast paced city life, I still really enjoyed it! Greek life is big, but I did not join and still had a great time! If I could go back I absolutely would, there are so many amazing aspects to Bama, from the football games, to the weather, to the excellent professor, I really feel like I lucked out by choosing to go to school at Alabama. If you find the right friends here, you can't help but have the time of your life!

Majors: I WISH I COULD GO BACK! I really miss the learning environment and support the University of Alabama provided me with. Looking back I wish I had taken advantage of more of the resources that Bama offers. They want you to succeed and provide you with the tools to do so. There is really no excuse not to excel here.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I graduated with my Bachelor's in Psychology and have to say that I LOVED the education I received. I was extremely challenged, but only to the point in which I could still achieve an extremely high grade point average if I put in the work. I learned a ton, and really connected with my professors. They are really awesome.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The University of Alabama is such an amazing place to go to school. All the facilities are state of the art and look like they are right out of a Movie. I loved the campus setting and the pride the school has in it's students, athletics, and campus life.

Greek Life: Greek system is prejudice and a big part of bama.

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.
