I've been attending the University of Alabama for about two months now, and I absolutely love it! The campus is so beautiful, especially around fall. The quad is amazing during football games. You can see the sense of community during the school days and on the weekend during games. On school days you can see how hundreds of students from different backgrounds come together to study or socialize. On the weekends you can see how much all the students love our school by their support for the football team. You can also see the support through alumni who continue to come back to campus. Another thing i've started to realize is how blessed we are with some of the greatest teachers. The teachers I've met so far have been not only welcoming but seem to know exactly what they're talking about. They actually seem as if they enjoy teaching and enjoy their students. I've greatly enjoyed school here so far due to the beautiful campus, friendly people, and brilliant teachers.

The University of Alabama is a school that either you,ll hate or love. There are many clubs and organizations to join, so there's no way you wouldn't be left out. Greek life dominates majority of the school, but there's plenty to do outside of the stereotypical Greek life. Students here are fairly nice, but there are occasional snobs to watch out for. With so many things to do, one cant say the school is boring. Things get exciting when football season comes around, it's certainly entertaining to be a part of. But despite the major role sports play here, academics are important. I wouldn't redo my freshman year over because I'm looking forward to the upcoming school year!

I love the University of Alabama! It is a school that prides itself on both academics and athletics. I'm not Greek, and the Greek presence here can be overwhelming, but only if you let it. Almost everyone here dresses similarly. If you're into partying, this is the school for you. There are also tons of other activites if partying isn't your thing. The students here prioritize comfort on a daily basis and don't dress for class, at all. However, we do dress up for game days. The humidity here is awful, but you adjust to it. The campus is huge, and it's only expanding. But it's true what everyone says: you can always make a big school feel small. Find your people, discover your interests, and make this campus your own. We're all kind down here. So if you choose to come here, welcome to the south, and roll tide!
