Off-Campus Dining: Most of these are chain restaurant and have the same food as all other chains. If you want something different, you have to go downtown where this a better selection. It's not too far from campus, you can walk or ride,

College Sophomore

Administration: I do not participate in social events.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The federal financial aid program is not that bad to acquire. It takes a good amount of time to enroll for the first time, but seems to be less of a hassle when you apply for the next year.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: There several areas to eat, some are chain restaurants and others are dining halls. The food in some of these is expensive and is best used through the meal plan option. Some international student talk about how food for students is cheap in there countries of origin and that the food here is expensive.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Lots of information and opportunities provided through the Business School.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The internships look like good opportunities and seem to be from some of the older students who have experienced them.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There seem to be numerous opportunities for internship/jobs within my major offered with workshops and such through my student email.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There is good access to Math Labs and to Student Help in some of the basic freshman courses.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Sometimes the campus police are over-zealous to stop what they think might be a potential party problem, when in reality, there is not much of a problem to start with.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Fraternity/sorority food is great. Dining halls are not that good. The Ferg has some good places to eat.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Nearly all of the dorms have separate bedrooms for each person

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet, but I've seen plenty of off campus housing. I don't feel right rating though because I haven't experienced off campus living yet.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the restaurant options. Tuscaloosa is trying to boost it's ethnic scene and I think it's working. The two Thai restaurants closest to campus are pretty bomb, and there's a Chinese restaurant close enough that I heard is pretty amazing. I know that there are more ethnic restaurants farther away from the campus.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm probably not the best one to rate the party scene, but I can say that if you want to party, there is always somewhere that will accept you.

3 College Freshman

Administration: This administration is probably the least invasive administration out there. Because this is a big party school, underage drinking is rampant here, but I rarely hear of people being caught for it. It's just a mainstay. And other than the smoking ban, the admin mostly stays out of the way.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't get as much scholarship as I wanted, but the aid options were great. It's pretty streamlined and they have all the steps up on your MyBama so you don't miss out on anything.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I loved the workers at Lakeside! They made everything better, regardless of how subpar the food was that day. But Tender Tuesday's at Lakeside saved my life. Always go on Tuesday's at lunch. And limit yourself. That fifth piece of pizza will not taste any better than the first did. And try the salad bar at Fresh Food's. It has way more variety. Breakfast at Bryant is well worth the walk every morning. Best place for breakfast on campus!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! It's not the cheapest option, but for freshmen year, it's the best thing to do. Every freshmen has a place to live if needed on campus, and as an upperclassmen, I have a place if I want it as well. And there are so many options, so I will always find the best place for me. Plus, in Bryce Lawn, there's a washer/dryer unit in the actual dorm! Super cool!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel SO safe on campus and in Tuscaloosa.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: best and biggest in the country. UA basically revolves around Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Student living apartments are all around Tuscaloosa and are easy to lease and find! The have booths in the Ferguson center at the end of the year to give information as well! All are very safe and great quality.

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.
