3 College Freshman

Campus Food: the best place to eat is bryant but that meal plan is more money

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm having trouble finding a place but I looking months after most people have their contracts in place. There are still a variety of options.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the places not on the strip you need a car to get to. There is a variety of prices and some really good bar-b-que places.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have no issues with them and they are pretty relaxed as long as you not obvious and illegal

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't partying so I where the party scene is or how it compares. However, there are tons of people on campus who don't. There no pressure one way or the other, except may be in the greeks they have weekly swap parties that are like required.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure to meet all the deadlines!!! But the scholarship app works like the Common App so it's easy to fill out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food can get repetitive fast if you go to the same dining hall. But all of them is so far apart that getting to them can be a pain.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms come with access to HBO Go and tons of movie channels. The suite style are the best, private bedroom and you share the bathroom with only one other person.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Easier to live on campus

5 College Freshman

Administration: Great professors some harder than others

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: They gave me no aid

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: All food is very convienent

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at the dining halls is really not that great other than the pizza however there are so many other option on campus that you can still use your ACT card for that it really makes up for the lack of quality and options in the dining halls.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My time at the University of Alabama has been absolutely amazing! The campus is gorgeous, the people are friendly and the school spirit is second to none. The buildings are humongous and beautiful. Almost every professor is incredibly passionate about the subject they teach and the advisors are very helpful and truly interested in helping you accomplish your dreams. There are very few negative things for me to say about the University of Alabama and Tuscaloosa.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally chose the Greek life and I love it. Greek life is huge here so it can feel overwhelming sometimes. Certain fraternities/sororities have a negative reputation and some have a great reputation. Greek houses with a good standing with the university get great seating at football games. If you're looking to rush, look into the fraternities and sororities that have great block seating at football games because that means they haven't gotten in trouble with hazing, arrests, assaults, etc.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is okay. It can be cheaper than living in dorms for the most part. The only problems are the crime and management. Off-campus apartments have a rep for higher crime, and management in certain (not all) apartments seem to not take their jobs very seriously.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is amazing. You can find literally anything around town. A lot of places offer student discounts. The best places to eat off-campus are City Cafe and Midtown Village are the best places to eat.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school isn't overly strict. It's about average. It's pretty easy to get away from underage drinking because of the huge party scene. Alcohol is easy to sneak into dorms, but the university takes drugs pretty seriously.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is amazing. There is a party and place for everyone. No matter what you're into, there is a party themed for you. The bars on the strip always have something going on. It seems like everything happens after the sun goes down especially during football season.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received the financial aid I needed within a decently time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is great. The only thing that caused me not to rate 4/5 stars is the lack of healthier foods in most of the dining halls.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I currently do not live off campus.

College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I have no experience of off campus dining.

College Student

Administration: I have no interaction with the administration at this time.

College Student

Party Scene: I will start school in the Fall of 2015.

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.
