3 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You're more likely to find a job in the South.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's nice to roll out of bed, throw on a hat and walk to class.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Those questions above summed it up well.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: It's Alabama football. I don't think anything else needs to be said.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The university police department sends out emails anytime a crime happens on or around campus which I really like. It not only opens my eyes to the reality of where I live, but keeps me alert knowing this stuff can happen to anyone.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Of my classes this past semester, I must say I was very impressed by them. The professors were very personable, even in my lecture classes. One thing I was worried about coming into college was not getting attention in my classes if I needed help, but the professors do a great job at making sure you get the attention you need.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Personally, I have not used any career prospects from the school yet as I am still figuring out what to do with my life. There are incredible opportunities though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm, Tutwiler, has a very convenient location... While it is one of the older dorms on campus, I love how close it is to most of my classes and my sorority house. A lot of the nicer suite style dorms are on the other side of campus, and are a pretty long walk to get to the quad and the sorority houses.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: As someone who is affiliated with greek life, I can honestly say that it was the best decision I made coming into college. I was very unsure if I wanted to do a sorority because of the negative things I've heard, but I have made some of the greatest friends so far and have had incredible opportunities to serve the girls in my sorority.

Athletics: Aside from being one of the biggest football schools in the country, Alabama has such great school spirit for every sport all around. Everyone loves "The Tide" and is willing to support any sport. I have been to football games as well as basketball games, and from what I've seen everyone is just as excited to cheer on our peers.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Alabama has absolutely lived up to my expectations of being my dream school. When I walk around the beautiful campus, I honestly can't help but be so thankful that I have the opportunity to be here. I love the people, the atmosphere, everything about it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have many weather alerts and all buildings have multiple ways of keeping students safe on 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.
