5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school and couldn't be happier in my choice of schools.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Southern Pride are two words to explain the university of Alabama. My school takes pride in its education system. Not only do we have great athletic teams but clubs and majors too. The University of Alabama is a great college and Tuscaloosa is the beautiful college town that complements it. Roll Tide.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School is great, school spirit is insanely high and runs throughout the school and state, for that matter, during football season. Primarily downfall is the greek like. If your not associated with it, then it is extremely hard at first to make friends. Especially since at the beginning all freshman believe they "have to go greek" in order to party and enjoy college. Greek life, in the end, just creates a separation between students, and in order to party and have a social life greek is the way to go. This just makes it a pain to make friends as everyone on campus tends to just be to themselves in day to day life.

Overall Experience: I love going to a large out-of-state school with tons of school spirit. The scholarships are fantastic and the housing is great. I have tons of great opportunities. I would not change my decision even if I had the choice.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I was 10 years old, The University of Alabama had been my dream school. I was totally in love. In fact, it was the only school I sent my transcript to, that's how sure I was about attending. Two years later, I am still very happy with my choice. I know that no place is perfect and the University of Alabama is no exception. However, I could not see myself being truely happy or at home anywhere else.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The university of Alabama is a fantastic school filled with many opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Univ. of Alabama is a school that provides many opportunities for the students. Coming from Michigan it makes me feel like I'm at home.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Absolutely love the college! Beautiful campus. Super-nice faculty, staff, students. Varied curriculum and plenty of extra curricular activities to choose from. Offered degree I was interested in. Great choices of classes and scheduling. Outstanding dorms. Great southern hospitality and weather!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I thought I would hate this school, but I love it. The academics are outstanding and every program is guaranteed to give you skills required to enter the field of your choice. There plenty of different clubs to suit a variety of interests. Despite being a large university, the classes are typically small to give the professor and students better communication.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I chose to attend The University of Alabama because it is the most diverse and welcoming school I visited among my school tours summer before senior year. My overall experience at Alabama has showed me hundreds of opportunities to be involved, meet new people and succeed in my aspiration to become a successful business woman. I have no doubt in my mind that I will have the most influential and exceptional time at UA and am beyond thrilled to start this journey. Roll Tide!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Alabama was wonderful my freshman year. I loved living on campus and being apart of everything going on. I lived in the newest dorms and had a two bedroom suit to myself, it was perfect. Gameday Saturday's were the best thing during fall semester. You could feel the mood change throughout the entire campus. Nothing makes me smile more than hearing thousands of people yelling "Roll Tide". Now I am a junior and live off campus, but nothing has changed. I still have so many great opportunities. I would without a doubt choose Alabama again if I could.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a place for everyone, it just may take some work to find it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although lacking much diversity. my school encompasses a safe and accepting environment that overcompensates for the overwhelming majority. It is known or its phenomenal law school, but also has many great programs for people with other interest.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the University of Alabama. The people are great. The atmosphere is great. The professors are amazing. The class choices are great. What else can I say. Oh yeah. Roll Tide.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. I wouldn't choose a different school. I have the very best experience and I can't wait to be back in the fall! My school is unique because it fits every personality. It's a home away from home. It has something to offer fro everyone. From greek life, sports, clubs, and degrees, everybody has something for them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Enjoyed my high school. I wished I would have pushed my self harder my freshman year.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being a student at the University of Alabama means simultaneously being a football fan and a lover of all things crimson and white. My university has taught me the importance of tradition and how enriching it can be to join in on them. Before 17 year old me got on a plane to visit Tuscaloosa, I had never dreamed of living in the south (or anywhere that meant I couldn't be in the heart of Chicago in an hour or less). But my choice to spend the most important four years of personal growth in my life in sweet home Alabama has made me a more culturally aware and truly curious individual. I love that I can recognize the difference between a Louisiana accent and a southern drawl. I am proud to say I've tried grits, biscuits and gravy and real southern sweet tea. I have impressed myself with not only how well I adjusted to a completely different environment, but how deeply I've enjoyed it. Being part of the UA family is not an experience that could be replicated at any other school, and while I don't think I'll call Alabama home forever, it has been the perfect home for me to discover who I am and what the world I live in has to offer.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being away from home in the beginning is never easy, but once I started to settle in I could not have been happier with the choice I had made. It was the best decision to go to the University of Alabama and I would not change for anything.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is the best because I am a very social person. There are over 35,000 people at my school so to me it's just more opportunity to make friends. Also my school has on of the top athletics programs in the country and we've been national champions in almost every sport and most recently Football. Great campus, great atmosphere, and great people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: ROLL TIDE! I am an out of state student and I would recommend everyone at least visit Alabama. The southern hospitality and way of life is amazing. I am part of Greek Life and it is bigger here than anywhere else in the country. It is always beautiful weather here and the sunsets are incredible. Alabama is the typical college town, the bars are packed Monday-Sunday but we still manage to go to church. Bruno library is the place to be to study! We have incredible parties with many famous artists (Waka-Flocka, Soulja Boy, Wale.. ) Just to name a few. And of course we have the best football program in the nation!

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.
