5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am so happy I went to Alabama. The environment here is exactly what I wanted out of college. It's very studious but at the same time there are so many fun things to get involved in.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The student health center is available to you, but a bit of a hassle. It takes a long time to be seen and I've heard of people being asked "well what do you want us to do?" which seems a big ridiculous. I go to crimson urgent care, which is not far from campus at all and have had great experience with them. UAPD offers alerts for major crimes and ACT cards are required to enter dorm buildings. 348-RIDE is one of their main selling points, but is honestly not good. People wait long waiting times and have grumpy and impolite staff.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the experience that I have gained here. Most of it comes from outside of the classroom, but the classes are good too. Class size varies from 20-400 students (the freshman electives being the largest I've had). I've liked most of my professors

Campus Housing: I honestly love both rooms I have been in, but my problem is with the price. There aren't many housing scholarships and I pay an awful lot.

Greek Life: I personally don't like the idea of being in a sorority, but the fraternities are great! I will be joining an honor fraternity hopefully this semester to see what all the hype is about! Will report back ??

Athletics: ALABAMA FOOTBALL AM I RIGHT?! Basketball is also very big and gymnastics dominates. I myself am on the lacrosse team and I love it. Roll tide!

Overall Experience: I really do love it here at UA, but the cost is a bit outrageous. They reel you in with big scholarship opportunities, but hidden costs are awful high. This is one of the only real problems I have had here at the university. The atmosphere is wonderful, it is hauntingly beautiful, and the activities are great (ROLL TIDE 16 in 16)!

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus, but outside of campus can get sketchy

Overall Experience: I love this school. If you can get into the Honors college, definitely do that, because it makes a world of a difference

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings are getting pretty run down, but it's pretty nice

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty important, but yo ucan definitely get by without it

Athletics: 2016 National champs, need I say more?

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I didn't expect to fall in love with this school the way I did. Alabama is exponentially growing to be very prestigious and buildings are being constructed all the time. The football team is bringing in a lot of money and even though we get some hate, it really is the best school ever

Campus Housing: On-campus housing isn't horrible, but it's not something I would do for more than the required freshman residency. Dorms are small and at least a 10 minute walk from classes.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Non-Greek students are more uppity than the Greek students. They constantly degrade other students who are a part of the Greek system on baseless facts, such as the idea that sorority girls are stupid or something of the sort.

Athletics: I mean, we have the best football team in the nation. What else could this school ask for?

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the school itself, but the theatre department has much to be desired. There is a very clear favoritism of the musical theatre majors, which sets the theatre majors extremely behind the musical theatre majors, because the department seems to not care about the success of the theatre majors.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not too many security officers can be seen at one time but they are around if you are ever in an emergency.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are great along with the professors. Sometimes trying to hear the professor in a large room can become troublesome but because of the friendly students in those classes you wont fall behind if you approach someone for help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Internships based on your major are somewhat easy to find. It becomes easier as you seek help.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the older dorms are the best in quality but they are adequate. The newer dorms are the best in quality provided that the distance to classes is a bit of a hassle.

Greek Life: Other than the fact that most guys wont enter any Greek parties, Greek life is almost as huge a factor here as is Athletics.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: There is no school better in the department of athletics other than the University of Alabama

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If i had the chance to choose another college I wouldn't choose any other college other than the University of Alabama the experiences you encounter throughout the school year is great. 1the teachers are excellent and the students are friendly and fun to be around. The students make the college worthwhile to attend based upon the atmosphere of campus.

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.
