5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is the best school in the nation. If you disagree, you probably didn't get the chance to go here and for that I am so sorry, truly the best time of my life and I have loved every second of it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am only a sophomore so I am just now starting to explore more of the internships and careers side of things. but from many older peers and friends they have had plenty of opportunities come there way from jobs/programs on or off campus throughout there first years of their undergraduate studies.

Health & Safety: I always feel safe, whether I'm in the classroom, walking home or at a football game. I've never been caught in a situation where I have ever been scared for my health or safety.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I put "somewhat easy" for my response to the question defining how difficult it is to get into a sorority or fraternity on campus because it's actually the best and easiest experience out there, it's simply making the commitment and deciding you want to make it such a huge part of your life, is the only difficult part. People that aren't in Greek life or haven't made a decision whether to be involved or not are the ones that typically rely on the stereotypical reputations and rumors, but I found none of this to be true. Greek life simply shows you a little be of every possible personality there is on such a big campus and helps you decide who you can see your self studying or hanging out on the weekends with. Its the best decision I've ever made and because of my great experience I encourage everyone to at least give it a try!

Athletics: There's nothing better than Alabama, like I said, except Alabama football. I personally am not super athletic but the commitment to keep our schools athletic focus on the map is absolutely incredible. They dedicate so much time and passion to making each sport stand out and be supported by the entire student body.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to the University of Alabama! I enjoy the school traditions, the friendly environment and the wonderful academic programs they offer.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks party all the time and its hard and controversial in getting in the non-NPHC frats/sorors at Alabama if you are black or non-white. I have some greek friends that are in NPHC frats/sorors and they enjoy it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Well Alabama football runs the school, but besides that we have a great athletic department. All of our athletic teams, track, baseball, softball, gymnastics and basketball, even swim and fishing are the best of the best.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is the best academically, visually, and socially. The only thing I would like to change would be the cost and how well the advisors help us organize our future classes/scheduling and class availability. But other than that, I overall have good days with friends, fun, all while working hard and focusing on my main goal of becoming a nurse and graduating from Alabama.

Campus Housing: you can't beat the quality and spaciousness of the "dorms" at UA-never seen any like them. however, because they are so nice it does minimize socializing with other students as many tend to stay in their rooms more than you would in a typical dorm. its a sort of double edged sword-it is up to you what sort of experience you want.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: my academic schedule makes greek life not possible

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.
