4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most teachers here are amazing and really put forth the effort to help you succeed. Class sizes are mostly small and some are very large depending on what class you take. There is a good variety of majors as well.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: One of the things I love about this place is how safe I feel here. I don't hear of anything bad ever happening.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I commute, but charger village is the best overall and everywhere else is okay.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a non-Greek but do believe the Greeks help the community in many ways. They are pretty open to those who are not a part of a fraternity/sorority.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have a pretty good basketball team and the games are fun to watch. We do lack a football team which makes it hard for people to get in to the spirit.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a nice simple campus with great people. I enjoy going to basketball games and working out at the fitness center. Wish there was a football team but it isn't a big deal.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The police station is central to the campus and supports a large group of officers. There are also safety "Call Boxes" located through out the campus to allow anyone in trouble to call for help.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career prep is a big deal. There is a large career fair every spring that is well attended by top companies as well as current students and alumni. There is a lot of resume revues, talks with companies and what they are looking for, tours of company facilities, etc.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is very low key. While there is on campus greek housing and poster boards advertising different greek charity events, little else is apparent that there is greek life on campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: UA Huntsville is not known for its athletics program. We are one of the few universities in the south that has a hockey team but besides that, sports are not paid any attention.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: UA Huntsville is known for two things: engineering and nursing. Both of these programs are the top programs in the state and rank highly regionally. But being at the top comes with a price. The amount of work that needs to be done to maintain the level of academic success that these programs demands is formidable. This, in turn, affects the students well-being as well as the professors. While university is a place to prepare for the difficult times that are in real life, UA Huntsville can take itself too seriously sometimes. A more relaxed approach to a lot of the courses would better serve a large portion of the student and faculty population.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: UAH has excellent reviews from past and current students. It is known as an academic school not a "party school" or a "breeze school". The professors are dedicated to providing the best education and experience to every student. I am excited about attending UAH and starting my college adventure.

Party Scene: The party scene at UAH is very limited and not all that great,. The bar/club scene is limited as well, but I believe the students at UAH make it work. There is a transportation system, called safe ride, its nice to have but don't give rides to only from downtown.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The quality of parties is decent. I would say the best parties are any sports parties. I believe personally that a healthy party scene has a positive impact on a students experience. You don't want to say when you get older that all you did was stay in room and study and not get out, make friends and enjoy life.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are nice and approachable, the curriculum is rigorous, the registration process is reasonably easy. As for the workload it can be heavy at times but is bearable. There is limited special study options. The popular study areas are in the CU.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug isn't visibility on campus and alcohol is somewhat visible on campus, usage is limited and the presence of peer pressure is little to none. Policy enforcement is good.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime is rarely heard of at UAH. I personally feel safe on campus, I don't have a problem walking to class alone or anywhere else of campus. I'm unaware of any special security measures at UAH. The police can be annoying at times but they of their jobs well, safety services are decent.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of courses is really good at UAH. I am a business management major and I'm extremely happy to be enrolled in UAH's business program because its one of the best in the state. The professors are good and are very nice and easy to talk to. There is a limited variety of courses offered, mostly science classes since UAH is an engineering school, it would be nice to see a more diverse selection. Class styles are limited to traditional, online and a hybrid classes. Class size is reasonable with the largest being 60-70, only certain classes make are 100 people.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality go employee recruiting on campus is very good considering UAH degrees have the number 1 return on investment in the state of Alabama. Job/internships prospects and quality of career center/services on campus are good as well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Charger Village is among the best dorms at UAH, the freshman choices are not that good of a living situation. Amenities are decent, the social atmosphere is good, however the cost of living is high at Charge Village because I used to live there but I don't really know about the other living options.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: UAH has a very limited Greek presence on campus. But those we do have, have a good reputation across campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a part of the women's basketball team, I would rate the student involvement very high although the attendance to women's events are low the students at UAH still get involved. Team performance is good, have one of the best division men's basketball teams as well as our women's lacrosse team made it to the championship in their first year as a program. Hah has incredible fan support, school spirit and facilities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experience so far at UAH is meeting different people, of all races, ethnic background and life story. Its what makes my school unique, something else that makes my school unique is that its located in the "Rocket City" with a perfect view of the rocket at all times of the day especially at night.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I can walk in to the clinic and be out in minutes.
