Off-Campus Housing: difficult to find and very expensive, my mom says its like a mortgage payment, but there is very limited campus housing for upper classmen

Greek Life: very active, living in a greek house is limited due to space so it is just the luck of the draw. The houses are a home away from home, very inviting. And the camaraderie gives you the support you need

Party Scene: it Is the kids who create the night life, not the bars. We are usually just meeting up or hosting events ourselves on campus. You don't have to go far to be included

Campus Housing: you get what you pay for - expensive dorms are luxurious and the economy models are just that small and outdated, but I hear they will be replacing these with more spacious models

Health & Safety: The community does a great job at maintaining a safe and secure location on campus. Rarely do students feel threatened or at risk of danger with the security measures taken around campus.

Administration: The police do a good job keeping the peace, and are often quick to respond to situations. They hold the students to a high standard and expect that it reflect through their behavior.

Campus Quality: Student life is extremely concentrated at UA. Between the extremely heavy Greek life and countless other organizations it is hard NOT to be involved. Generally, students share a deep sense of pride and excitement over sporting events and are very supportive of other clubs and organizations as a whole.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: While I love the environment and the overall pride of campus, it is very easy to get lost in the mass population. Many students also have an air of entitlement, which may stem from the pride of the community itself.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are often many options when it comes to nightlife at UA. Most centers around Greek life, however everyone is welcome at the bars and rarely to people feel excluded if they are independent in these party scenes.

Campus Quality: My school is unique because it harbors so much tradition, which is not something that many schools can still attest to. The University of Alabama boasts its rich tradition, often seeming a bit stubborn when it comes to updating policies and rituals, however, it is its pride and deeply rooted history that make it such a prime location for generations to confide in and rely on year after year.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The advisors aren't much of a help and I don't like that almost everything you do is online. I feel like I could be doing the same stuff at an online community college and save a lot more money.

Academics: Academics are not a focus for a lot of people on campus, but Alabama is really stepping up their game when it comes to academics. The Honors Program provides a great support system for the students. They even give all the honors students one of the nicest dorms. If you want to succeed, the school will give you the opportunity to push yourself.

Academics: The Business School is one of the best programs at Alabama. You know what is required of you for the lower and upper divisions. There is a nice business library and the other buildings aren't bad either. People in the business school are generally a part of greek life or driven for success. There are also a ton of business clubs and organizations, including Alpha Kappa Psi, a nationally known business fraternity.

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.
