Party Scene: All the club owners are super nice and friendly. The night life action can get a bit repetitive, but I had fun every time we went out and if you look good enough you will never pay for anything!!

Overall Experience: I came all the way across the country from California, and though the people and culture was very different, and perhaps the hardest adjustment to make coming from the fast paced city life, I still really enjoyed it! Greek life is big, but I did not join and still had a great time! If I could go back I absolutely would, there are so many amazing aspects to Bama, from the football games, to the weather, to the excellent professor, I really feel like I lucked out by choosing to go to school at Alabama. If you find the right friends here, you can't help but have the time of your life!

Majors: I WISH I COULD GO BACK! I really miss the learning environment and support the University of Alabama provided me with. Looking back I wish I had taken advantage of more of the resources that Bama offers. They want you to succeed and provide you with the tools to do so. There is really no excuse not to excel here.

Majors: I graduated with my Bachelor's in Psychology and have to say that I LOVED the education I received. I was extremely challenged, but only to the point in which I could still achieve an extremely high grade point average if I put in the work. I learned a ton, and really connected with my professors. They are really awesome.

Campus Quality: The University of Alabama is such an amazing place to go to school. All the facilities are state of the art and look like they are right out of a Movie. I loved the campus setting and the pride the school has in it's students, athletics, and campus life.

Campus Quality: Student life on campus is booming to say the least ! There is always something to do no matter what your interests are.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are plenty of spaces to park, although spots fill quickly.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is very important on campus. The white Greeks have better houses and whole rows dedicated to their frats or sororities, compared to the nine frats and sororities that blacks have combined. There are only one house for one black frat and one house for one black sorority, and they are nowhere near as nice as the other houses.

Transportation: The campus shuttles are very accessible and convenient. They run at all times of the night and once they stop running, campus offers shuttles to come to your exact location and take you where you need to go.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is everything on campus. One of the main reasons a lot of people enroll in the university and people from all over come visit to be apart of the action.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The local atmosphere of Tuscaloosa is average. There is not really too much to do outside of campus, especially on the weekends and outside of football season.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Campus is so diverse. I meet people from all over the United States, from other countries. Overall, everyone is friendly and fun to be around, going off of the friends that I have mad, personally.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is not very strict on visitation. The alcohol use is a problem if you seem drunk or if caught on campus with an open container of alcohol, if your alcohol is in a plastic cup then the campus security will not stop you.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in campus! It is always clean and taken care of, even after weekends of people making a mess, the campus is always clean the very next day. The cost of the dorm I am currently living in is $4400. The most expensive on campus, I feel that it is worth it for the quality of the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I am very satisfied with my professors, they take things slow and are always available whenever I need help or have questions.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Being a fashion marketing major, I take a lot of art history classes. Overall, my workload is easy and not too much. The advisers work with you to show you what classes are necessary towards your major.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I was very surprised about the dining options, because we have so much variety. The dining hall closest to my dorm stays open late and has great quality food.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe walking alone on campus, day and night.

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.
