3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If there's something involving drug usage, the school would try to fix that right away. Unless it's a major issue, the issue on drug usage is average here on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience taking classes at Alabama has been enjoyable. The school is flexible on all the classes they can offer, along with planning out your schedule. Class size will vary greatly on what major you have, some class can hold up to 500 students all the way down to eight students. Whatever class you choose, be it required or not, the professors are good at what they do. They enjoy connecting with their class, getting help after class wasn't a problem.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Anyone eligible for work study has a fair chance at getting a good job on campus. The school helps you to a point find jobs on campus, often holding career fairs and meetings. There's always room for people to work on campus, including off campus jobs for those who wants it. From merchandising, school programs, gardening, varsity teams, the number of jobs available exceed better than most schools. As long as you're willing to work for it, getting a job is a fairly simple process.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety issues isn't a big issue on campus, often more than anything the security guards are on the job constantly. If there;s a big concern that comes up, the school tries to fixes it right away.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing on campus isn't bad, it depend mostly where you live on campus. Those who live in Lakeside, Ridgecrest, and Presidential Village live more nicer compare to the older dorms. I live in Martha Parham, one of the older dorms and it was just fine. There was equal space for it;s residents and it's kept clean. It wasn't up to date compare to the newer dorms, but some of the old dorms are alright. It wasn't a big deal on who lives where, it depends on your's preference. But living on campus has it quirks, so I;m thankful I got the chance to live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I can't give a real review on Greek life because I'm not involved, but from what I've heard, its great. The fraternities and sororities here holds many students, each one unique in their own way. From what I've seen , their constantly involve in volunteer services around Tuscaloosa, which is good on their part. Of course, there's the concern with hazing incidents, more so with the fraternities than anything, but I suppose things will get better. Regardless of what people think of them, Greek life is here to stay at Alabama, its not leaving anytime soon.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: This school revolves around sports, it wouldn't be the school it was without sports. Football, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, including other sports. The amount of support for the athletics students and teachers have is amazing. :Roll Tide!' is a consistent catchphrase heard around campus; there's not a day that doesn't go by without hearing it. As well as our teams perform on field, the facilities are state of the art. There's something for everybody to get physically involve with, regardless of anyone's interest.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is the best school in the nation. If you disagree, you probably didn't get the chance to go here and for that I am so sorry, truly the best time of my life and I have loved every second of it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am only a sophomore so I am just now starting to explore more of the internships and careers side of things. but from many older peers and friends they have had plenty of opportunities come there way from jobs/programs on or off campus throughout there first years of their undergraduate studies.

Greek Life: I put "somewhat easy" for my response to the question defining how difficult it is to get into a sorority or fraternity on campus because it's actually the best and easiest experience out there, it's simply making the commitment and deciding you want to make it such a huge part of your life, is the only difficult part. People that aren't in Greek life or haven't made a decision whether to be involved or not are the ones that typically rely on the stereotypical reputations and rumors, but I found none of this to be true. Greek life simply shows you a little be of every possible personality there is on such a big campus and helps you decide who you can see your self studying or hanging out on the weekends with. Its the best decision I've ever made and because of my great experience I encourage everyone to at least give it a try!

Athletics: There's nothing better than Alabama, like I said, except Alabama football. I personally am not super athletic but the commitment to keep our schools athletic focus on the map is absolutely incredible. They dedicate so much time and passion to making each sport stand out and be supported by the entire student body.

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.
