2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I came here from California because I got a full tuition scholarship and it made sense. I wish I had gone somewhere I wanted to go instead of what made sense financially and academically. Surely there was a middle ground. I am transferring now. Don't make the mistake I did, go somewhere you actually want to be.

Overall Experience: The University of Alabama is a great school. It's a beautiful campus and full of activity. There are lots of clubs and activities. The classes are pretty good and the professors are helpful. It requires hard work but there are lots of resources for any help you might need.

Overall Experience: The thing about such a big university is that your experience is what you make of it. Opportunities don't come to you, you actually have to put forth effort. Sometimes I feel a little lost because it is such a big university but that's not a very big deal. Football is insane down here. I have never really watched football and now I definitely do. The games are so much fun. I would choose this school again because of the fantastic merit scholarships they give, but if money weren't an issue, I would have gone to Vanderbilt. Other wise I really love the school and my whole experience here so far has been a lot of fun.

Overall Experience: Some of the professors really go the extra mile to foster your academic and personal growth! The campus offers a variety of resources for students, including the amazing counseling Center. I probably wouldn't choose it again because the focus is more on Athletics than anything! Also, tuition is a killer! But I've enjoyed myself over these past four years!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love going to school at Alabama. It can be hard because I am really far from home and its a big school, but once you find your place on campus it is amazing. There is so much school pride and really great academics. Greek life has definitely been a big factor in why I have enjoyed it here so much.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my time at Alabama, but at times I regret going away from home. At a school as large as Bama, it can be very hard to find your niche. I know a lot of students struggle with this and although the greek system is advertised as a way to make the school feel smaller, this has not been my experience. Beyond this, the school has been great. The campus and facilities are pristine and beautiful. Everyone has a lot of school pride, especially when it comes to football (obviously). It is a very conservative school, and while that works for me, others may disagree with the general conservatism of campus.

Overall Experience: The Capstone is an amazing place to seek higher learning. We host a vast amount of majors, organizations, lots of resources to help you achieve here, and an amazing faculty/staff. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, but here. Roll Tide.

Overall Experience: The University of Alabama is absolutely incredible. The atmosphere and energy on a daily basis makes going far away from my hometown worth it. From football games to just going to class is an experience itself. I've met so many energetic people as well. There are so many activities, clubs, and people that are willing to help a student with anything at any given time. Roll tide !

Overall Experience: Roll Tide. It's a battle cry, it's a greeting, and it's even become synonymous with success for me. Initially, I was determined not to go to Alabama. It was the school both of my parents, as well as both of my siblings attended, so I HAD to be different and try to break the mold. Not that I didn't love Alabama football (how could I not?), but I didn't want to do what everyone expected me to do. However, once I set foot on that tree-dotted, sprawling quad, with Denny Chimes cheerfully clanging away, I knew it was all over. I was also drawn to Alabama's prestigious nursing program, which I am now about to graduate from in December. These past four years and have been some of the best of my life. I've made lasting friendships with girls from across the country. I was challenged academically, while I also enjoyed spending time in social settings. I would do it all over in a heartbeat.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Alabama is perfect college choice for me. Being a student athlete, the amount of school spirit reflected upon the athletics and the pride for the Crimson Tide is absolutely outstanding. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Not only is the school spirit second to none, there's an abundance of organizations to get involved in. That is to say that there is never a dull moment on campus. In addition to athletics and social life, the academics at the University of Alabama rank among the top 50 public schools in the nation. The professors are more than willing to answer additional questions and assist you outside of the classroom. The University of Alabama has given me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people, further my academic aspirations, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Overall Experience: It's a beautiful school, most of the teachers are great, it's very comfortable and there is always some activity going on. So much that it got me overwhelmed I didn't know which one to do.

But it was still a wonderful experience.

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.
