4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is really great to be at. I miss being there when I'm at home and count down the days until I'm back. The only downside is the financial advisors aren't very helpful and my scholarship money wasn't dispersed in the way I was told it was which has left me in debt instead of debt free like I was told. It's also very confusing trying to find what certain grades are on the mybama website.

Overall Experience: Academically, it is fantastic! Greek life and all other sororities and fraternities are destroying the campus! It makes me want to transfer and I am in tears everytime I have to go back to campus. It is extremely hostil! Get rid of frats and sororities ASAP!!!!!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am so happy with this school. It makes me not want to come back home??

5 College Freshman

Academics: The University of Alabama strives for the best in everything. The academics and career opportunities are unmatched by any other university. UA is not afraid to recognize its students who have worked hard and achieved excellent grades.

Health & Safety: Security on campus is very good. There are police phone stations all over campus, and lighted walkways at night. The few crimes that I have heard of occurred off campus or late at night when someone was alone, or when alcohol/drugs were involved.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I chose the University of Alabama over schools from all around the nation because the academics and career opportunities are unmatched. UA strives to be the best in every way, and there are infinite opportunities for students to become involved, whether in research, internships, lectures, etc.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I have very much enjoyed my first semester on campus. It is extremely diverse in academics, athletics, and career opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have enjoyed my dorm experience, and had a suite style room. It had not been vacuumed in years, though, and was a bit to clean up at first. Overall, it is a really nice place to stay.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Even though I am not a huge football fan, it is fun being on a campus with one of the best teams in the nation. The University of Alabama does well to promote the other sports teams as well, and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in fit and healthy lifestyles through phenomenal recreation centers and a variety of clubs and intramural sports.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved all of my classes. Each professor had an effective way of presenting the material, and I would always feel very well prepared for my exams. Professors were passionate about helping students learn, were helpful in office hours, and would direct students to opportunities for exploring a career field, internships, co-ops, etc. Even though I have learned academically, perhaps the most important thing I have learned in my first semester is professional working. I now have more confidence and knowledge to talk with others and understand more about accessing career opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. Do not go off campus. It is a different community. Never walk alone at night, thats common sence. be aware and you should always feel safe

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the professors know exactly what they are talking about. They understand the schools love for football and bring it into the classroom. they use real world examples and challenge me to think on a higher level

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Alumni are very into keeping alabama the best. I hope I can be a successful alumni because I also want to give back to my school in big ways! they do so much for students! I would love to show my appreciation down the road. ROLL TIDE

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: This school is booming! its becoming bigger and bigger every year! They are pouring money into the school. however they only have that money because out of state tuition is so expensive!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love the greek system it supports the university and the state of alabama. It does great things and in my opinion its in great light

Athletics: It is the best of the best. I tried out for a team and didnt make it but this was still my top choice. I plan on trying out again. Athletes are treated with the most respect

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school! I am excited to learn! I went from a 3.0 student to a 3.66 student and in the honors college my family and friends are all supportive and proud of me. I believe this school was the right fit for me

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school! I honestly cannot see myself anywhere else and I'm so happy I decided to come here. Some things could change and I generally don't fit in with my political/social beliefs but there are ways to avoid those topics of conversation. RTR!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are so many connections to make through different organizations on campus. There are also tons of clubs to join during Get On Board Day and they host activities throughout the year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in one of the nicer dorms on campus so I don't have a lot of complaints! Obviously, the dorm you live in fits the cost per semester (cheaper dorms are generally not as nice as more expensive dorms). A lot of girls looking at rushing during their freshman year will live in Tut because it is very close to the row. However, there are lots of problems and the appeal of an easy rush week will disappear after having lived in Tut for a semester. Generally, Presidential I and II, Lakeside East and West, all the Ridgecrests (HONORS), and Riversides are really nice but also really expensive.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Being a member of a sorority, I can say that I absolutely love my sisters and what my sorority stands for. However, I hate the divide between Greeks and Non-Greeks. I also feel like there is a giant stigma around Greek life here and while many members fit the description perfectly, not everyone in the Greek system is the stereotype.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: AMAZING! This is one of the best schools to go to if you're someone looking for a big crowd to hang out with. You will never be alone and there is always someone to hang out with in the Ferg or attend a football game with! One of the most noticeable issues on campus is the divide between Greek and Non-Greek people. Neither group seem willing to associate themselves with the other group unless it is for class.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is very big here. I, personally, would not like to join a sorority. At first I thought that it would be a good idea, but it seems to me that all they care about is the letters they wear and superficial things. They don't seem to be as helpful as they were back in the day and have a lot of drama. I would like to join one if they did more things for the community and to help better campus life.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Roll Tide is what describes The University of Alabama the best! This college is known for it's amazing and sometimes overly school spirit! One thing that brings this campus together despite the diversity, would definitely be the football team.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I transferred from the University of South Alabama to The University of Alabama my sophomore year for family reasons. At first, I was not too fond of UA because not all of my credits transferred. After the first semester, I began to love my school because of the various opportunities to be successful.

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.
