4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments themselves are all mostly new. The tornado helped boost the apartment field. It is extremely expensive and you have to decide where you are going to live a year in advance.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different options but I tend to just go to my regulars. All close to campus and all pretty reasonably priced.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I haven't seen anybody cheating so I don't know first hand how they handle these things. I have heard some people say they got caught cheating but nothing happened to them. I think if the policy states you get kicked out if you get caught cheating, then they should follow through. There are too many people who think rules don't apply to them.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is a party almost every night, but Thursdays seem to be the best night. I prefer going to fraternity row and since I am a girl I have no problem getting in. If you are a guy you either have to be in that fraternity or have a friend to get you in.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Living in Tut I eat at Julia's almost every day. I like the fact that it stays open til 2AM so late night snacks are easily available. Pizza at Burke is delicious! There is a wide variety of food options but I tend to stick with the same old ones. If you wanted really good food, go to Bryant Hall. Some days lobster and steak are offered, but it counts as 2 meals.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in the oldest dorm on campus and although it is a traditional dorm, double occupancy rooms with a community bathroom, I love it! Close to classes, the buses are right outside the dorm and I can walk anywhere.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The closer to campus the shi**ier it is. Compared to the far away places that are just as expensive, but way nicer.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple options, but there are so many students that it is always packed.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: You can get away with most anything. They don't care.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Do the engineering program, the other colleges don't give out as much money.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Anyday you want to go out there is something going on. However, if you are a guy you aren't allowed to fraternity parties unless you know something.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We have a lot of options of fast food from Chick-fil-a to Pizza. However if you want anything healthy it is going to hard to find.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love my dorm building and how it is always so clean and up to date. I also love the setup and how new everything is. However, it is a minimum of 15 minutes walk to any class. It is also an extremely far walk to fraternity and sorority row, which is very inconvenient.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You definitely have to get on looking for off campus housing sooner rather than later, which is stressful as a freshman. I'm living in a house next year, but a lot of people either live in Greek housing or in apartments.

Off-Campus Dining: Southerners love their fried food and chain restaurants, so its mostly a lot of that

4 College Freshman

Administration: As far as partying goes, as far as you're not the drunkest person walking down the street and you're not holding an open container you're fine. On gamedays there are zero rules. In the dorms I would say it depends on the RA, but for me and all my friends in different dorms I only know people with really lenient RAs

Scholarships: I do not personally have a car on campus, but I know a lot of people really struggle with what a pain parking is.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is pretty good, particularly during football season when its a home game. Saturday nights are weirdly pretty dead unless you are 19+ and can get into bars. The fraternity scene can get very old, but its usually a good time when you're a freshman.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Very little as far as variety and healthy options, although the food at my sorority house definitely offers a much better array of foods that I like. The food on campus isn't necessarily bad, but it certainly isn't the best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Definitely depends a lot on where you end up living, I live in Lakeside West and while the dorm itself is nice, the dorm is not social at all and I always have to go over to my friends dorms to have fun. From what I've seen both the tradition and the suite style dorms are quite nice, and you will typically be a 10-15 minute walk from your classes max.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very convenient. Almost every academic building is located less than twenty minutes away from the dorms. Every residential community has a dining hall located less than five minutes away. The dorms are also well-maintained.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
