4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't know much about the bar scene, but parties at fraternity houses are huge and always within walking distance. Underage students have access to all these, so don't miss out on much. Bars are more popular for upperclassmen.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The best thing about Tuscaloosa is the campus, but shopping and food is pretty good.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is incredible for Greeks and probably annoying for non-Greeks. It's clear that the Greek system runs the school and has the best of everything, including parties, housing, and student representation in most organizations.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is very prominent on campus, and drugs are accessible.

Overall Experience: I've loved living here on campus. Ever since I stepped foot here, I knew this was home.

Parking: Parking is such a hassle, and finding a great parking spot is like an act of God.

Technology: Computers are great here. They're up to date and the cost of use is lenient.

4 College Freshman

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.
