4 College Freshman

Administration: The rules make for a good school. The rules that need to be in place are there and enforced. It's not overwhelming or restricting.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus, but a bunch of my friends do. They all love it!

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Out-of-State Scholarships are AMAZING. I got a lot of scholarships and I wouldn't be attending this school if it wasn't for the aid I got!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Try to avoid SHC because it's VERY slow. I'm sure the care is great, but it takes a very long time to actually get any.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football season is the best!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Usually buses should be last-resort for transportation, but they are good nonetheless.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into upper-division Nursing school is very hard and competitive but there are many resources for help. Tutoring and advising are among the ones I use.

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.
