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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Off-Campus Dining: It's virtually impossible to not have your favorite restaurants delivered. So even if you don't have a car, you can enjoy your favorites. McDonald's is 24 hours!!!! Great BBQ joints---Archibald & Woodrows, Jim N Nicks, Moe's BBQ, Dickeys...and the list goes on.

Administration: UA is pretty lenient on most situations; however, please go to class. Most of the time, attendance or lack thereof will haunt you

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.
