4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus living is very convenient to where the classes are

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My college experience have been extraordinarily fun

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are instances of students being the victims of crimes but they are not common. I feel that the university takes the appropriate actions and has a very acceptable infrastructure in place to keep the student body safe. Especially on campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The university works very hard and very closely with students interested in internships and other career building opportunities. As an engineering student, I feel that the importance of joining professional societies, participating in internships and conducting undergraduate research is adequately stressed and presented to the student body. I get a sense that the university cares about graduating competitive engineers and effectively aids students in securing jobs.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Most of the residential communities are now "suite" style dorms where each student has a private bedroom, usually 4 bedrooms with a living room and kitchenette. The newer suite style dorms are quite expensive in my opinion but there are traditional style dorms which are about half the price of the newer suite style dorms. Although the traditional style dorms are much less expensive, they are also significantly older buildings. Overall, on-campus living is a bit expensive in my opinion but an excellent experience and the range of amenities offered makes the cost fair.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is a very big deal at UA so if you are interested in going greek, alabama has plenty of opportunities and numerous fraternities/sororities to choose from. The greek life is very active.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Literally, It is the best. It is in no way an overstatement to say that UA athletics are legendary.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The university of Alabama has it's pros and cons for me. The cons include relatively high tuition, moderately crowded due to rapid growth plan, and parking. Some of the upsides are: absolutely beautiful campus, more out of state students than in state (diverse student body), excellent engineering school which the university is continuously trying to improve, a plethora of student high quality student facilities and endless opportunities for internships/clubs/etc.

Overall, I am satisfied with my university choice.

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: classes are pretty hard and sometimes long but nothing bad to say

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the alumni network is incredible. more than any other school that i know

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends on the dorm building, but the one I lived in was brand new so there were no problem,s.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am in one of the top sororities in the nation, Alpha Phi. Greek life at Alabama is the only way to go.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: WE ARE THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! Football rules the school. No one has a problem with it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is the best college in the nation! Amazing professors, they are always willing to help.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are other great options outside of Greek Life, but not all people fit the "Greek" stereotype so give it a chance.

Overall Experience: Best year of my life

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus feels very safe. Campus security is very active and offers many resources to ensure the safety of the students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UA offers a great variety of majors and classes. Instructors are very intelligent and have great experience in the fields they are instructing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UA is very helpful in the pursuit of internships and, ultimately, jobs. They offer a wide array of connections and opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My freshman year I lived in the Ridgecrest North dorms. The dorms are very clean and spacious, foster a good community, and offer many social experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you're interested in Greek life UA is the place for you. I am not a member of a fraternity by choice but I have many friends that are members of fraternities or sororities. The Greek houses at UA are unmatched.

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.
