Overall Experience: I am a marketing major in the Business College. This will be the first year that I am in my major, so I will be more familiar with this topic by the end of the year. I would assume, like everything else at Alabama, it will be great!!!

Athletics: Every student at the University of Alabama has the opportunity to participate in sports......varsity championship sports (football, basketball, baseball, gymnastics, rowing, golf, cross country, softball, swimming/diving, tennis, volleyball, and track and field.) as well as, sports for students with disabilities, intramural, and club sports. The university has two recreation centers that provide additional opportunities for students to participate. All of the athletic facilities are among the best in the nation.

National championships, conference championships and individual achievements are nothing new to athletics at Alabama. Alabama has the best student involvement, fan support, and school spirit in the nation!!!! ROLL TIDE!!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The past two years at the University of Alabama have been overwhelmingly the best!!!! I graduated from Meridian High School thinking those were the best years of my life! After graduating, most of my friends went to Ole Miss, Mississippi State, or LSU. I decided that I wanted to branch out and do something different, so I chose University of Alabama. The was the best decision I have made so far in my life!!! I have made wonderful new friends, enjoyed the social life, kept my grades up, and what can be better than being a part of the National Championship Football scene!!!

ROL.L TIDE!!!! What makes Alabama unique are the people. Alabama is huge, but you have a feeling of family.

Yes, I would absolute choose Alabama again if I had it to do all over!!!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors are incredible. I have taken advantage of their office hours and nearly all of them are easier to talk to than my high school teachers were. Some classes are larger than I would prefer but they are bearable. The dance classes I am taking remind me of the classes I took at my studio back home in Indiana which really helps control my home sickness. Although I thought moving so far from home would be difficult, I'm incredibly happy with my decision to come here to Alabama because everyone has made me feel right at home.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I went to a job fair and signed up for a job right away. I began working three days after sending in my application and the job quality is incredible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am living in a 4 person suite-style dorm at Riverside North which is spacious and beneficial in its own ways. The only bad things about it here is that the people above us never sleep and walk incredibly loudly. When we took the dreaded hike upstairs to ask them to quiet down, they were upset and basically told us no. When we returned to our dorm that night, they began jumping and slamming things into their ground in order to spite us. The dorm is also incredibly expensive and it hurts my heart to say I'm paying a little over $9,000 to live here. It is also quite far away from many of the halls and makes walking to class a bit of a hassle. Overall, the dorm is very nice and my roommates and I are getting along very well so far.

Greek Life: Coming into my freshman year of college, I would have never thought I would want to join a sorority. I am not the stereotypical girl that comes to mind when you think of a sorority but, I was convinced to go through rush by my three roommates. On the first day, I had no idea what to expect but kept an open mind as my group walked from house to house. I did not even know what a door song was so as I was standing, front and center, waiting to walk into my first rush house, the doors flew open and 200 plus sorority girls started singing, screaming, clapping and flipping their hair in my direction. As a tear shed down my face in complete fear of what I was witnessing, I thought to myself, "what are you doing here, Abi.......You are not meant for this." The girls dragged each of us into the house one by one and had conversations with us about pointless things just so they could "get to know us." But, as the week went one and I went through this process nearly 45 more times, I began to understand the girls were all real people and sororities benefit their philanthropies in tremendous ways. I found my home at Kappa Delta with girls who I felt could truly become some of my best friends. Once you make it through rush week and find the house you think you will fit in best, you will understand why girls join sororities, even if they aren't the sorority girls on TV.

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.
