Overall Experience: So far most instructors have been very good. Like smaller classroom size rather than lecture halls

Greek Life: Greek life is my high school is more like social debutant-ish stuff. Your parents have to be in the social scene to get invited.

Athletics: However, so much money is devoted to the athletics that other programs like the arts do not get as much.

Health & Safety: Until this year, I very rarely heard of student safety issues. Most of the time when I did it was due to poor decisions influenced by alcohol. This year, the number of reports of crime in the areas surrounded campus has increased, referring to robberies.

Overall Experience: I've had some amazing professors here and some that are only teaching to get funding for research. Being in the Honors College can be very tedious to meet all of their requirements, but the priority registration and amazing seminars you can take make it well worth it. I have not had all bad professors in my science classes, but there are definitely some that do not care about their students at all. However, in the Honors College, every professor I had went above and beyond for their students and helped them network and have experiences to learn from outside of the classroom.

Overall Experience: Most of my friends have a job lined up for after graduation (in a few weeks). The career center makes a huge effort to connect students to employers by hosting multiple career fairs, in person and virtual, and distribute resumes to potential employers and companies.

Campus Housing: I lived in one of the old dorms and although it was spacious, it was kind of gross. The new dorms are apartment style and they are spacious, clean, and private. They have a second student recreation center (gym) near the new dorms and everyone has their own room.

Greek Life: Greek life at this university is very dominant, but that's not to say that non-Greeks don't enjoy their experience here equally! As a member of Greek life, you will have plenty of opportunity to live in the sorority/fraternity houses on campus and enjoy a lot of Greek community events. All of the sorority and fraternities support each other and plan socials and philanthropic events together. If you are a part of Greek life here, there will never be a dull moment because you have a new family of brothers/sisters to rely on.

Athletics: If you're into football, this is the school for you. There are so many traditions of UA that revolve around our sports teams, especially football. It's nice that students also regularly attend baseball, gymnastics, basketball, etc. games, too.

Overall Experience: The college experience at UA is what you make of it. It can be loaded with fun at social parties, fundraisers, and of course football games, or it can be full of studious days and nights. There is a wide range of student interests and many organizations to reflect those. Even as my interests have changed over the past four years, I have always felt an appreciation for what this university has to offer. It's also one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen, so the walk to class is always enjoyable!

Academics: The overall experience at the University of Alabama is excellent. Everything from the professors, curriculum, courses, social, study groups, registration, and workload. Roll Tide!

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I do not see where a person will not accept another due to their ethnic, political, sexual, or religious background.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on the campus. Whether I am taking an early class or late class the campus is fully lit and security rides around all the time. There is public transportation to help get you safely to your destination. They have set up through the police department a security where if you go from on place to the other to alert them when you arrive. If you don't they will come look for you.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are excellent they have office hours if you need extra help. They also want you to succeed in their class so they go above and beyond to be their for the students. The class sizes range in size but even the bigger classes you get the same experience as long as you apply yourself. The University of Alabama offers a variety of courses for your major and minor classes. Roll Tide!

Campus Housing: I was very pleased with the dorms on campus. I am in a suite style dorm and there is plenty of space and privacy. It was nice to be able to review possible roommates before we picked our dorms not that you were placed with somebody you didn't know. The social atmosphere is great too everyone is very nice and always helpful. The housing process was not hard at all. Before I entered the school they had online help and step by step instructions from live people to help me through the process easy. Each floor had their own laundry room, study room, and trash room. Everything is very clean and the laundry room is easy to work the machines. They just need a couple of more washers and dryers. Overall my campus housing has been a great experience. Roll Tide!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of the University of Alabama. They have the largest overall fraternity and sorority membership. The only thing I feel that is difficult is the expense of being apart of a sorority. I love the social aspect they are very nice and welcoming. Being that I pay out of state tuition I can not afford to be apart of a sorority but I do go with my friends and I love it. Roll Tide!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The University of Alabama does a great job with the athletics in the school, especially football. Football gives the school spirit and definitely has fan support. Between the parades, games, and the teams performance the whole school becomes involved. They also encourage all the other sports to get fan support. Roll Tide!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My over all experience at the University of Alabama has been unbelievable. This is my first year of college and I am 10 hours away from home and the school has made me feel like family instead of a number. All the teachers go out of their way to help and encourage me to succeed during my college experience so far. I have joined crimson kindness and been involved in a community faith group. In the fall I plan on trying out for the equestrian team. I have made many friends and feel very fortunate and confident that I will succeed in my overall college experience. This school is unique I feel because of the football. Football seems to bring the whole school together in spirit. I am very fortunate to be able to be apart of the University of Alabama. Roll Tide!

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.
