Academics: Besides the professors that barely speak english, I have loved every professor and course I have taken. My academic experience has been excellent these past 3 semesters and I definitely recommend the Alabama for everyone.

Health & Safety: The only reason why I wouldn't feel safe is because the school is so large and you have to walk a decent walk to get anywhere. But there are always a ton of police around the dorms and fraternity row so I am not very worried, but always on my guard

Local Area: The town pretty much revolves around the school. I wish there were more interesting/fun things to do on a boring Saturday afternoon, but you can always go to the rec or walk along Riverwalk.

Weather: The weather is okay. I had to buy rainboots to walk around campus! But I'm from Florida and the weather is pretty bipolar as well.

Transportation: The buses are great, although it would be better if they could run at opposite times. They have 3 busses show up in the same 5 minutes, then you have to wait 30 minutes for another bus. It would be much more convienent if a different bus could come every 15 minutes.

Diversity: Our school is extremely diverse. Each semester I've been here (3 so far) I've had a different roommate and neighbors in my hall. Many of them have been exchange students from other countries (my current roommate is from Chile). I hardly meet anyone from Alabama. The majority of campus is out-of-state.

Party Scene: It all depends on what you're into. I've gone out once a month probably, so I don't know much about the nightlife, but I know that the transportation is good, you can always call 348-Ride

Off-Campus Dining: Being able to use Bama Cash at a large variety of places is extremely convienent. I don't know much about student discounts, but the entire city plays a part in connecting with the University so that students have a large variety of options for dining.

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options for off campus housing and they are extremely close to campus. The best part is that they provide transportation from the housing to the campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You can completely avoid it, you can partially partake or you can be fully involved. It's all on a personal level, there's barely any peer pressure.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish there were more options for out of state students. It's crazy expensive.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at AU is big! I'm in a sorority and I love it. I've met so many girls/guys that I would not have normally

met through our greek activities.

Drug Safety: I have never experienced any peer pressure to do drugs.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The University of Alabama students know how to party. There are so many activities that there is no reason to ever be bored here.

comes from non-student residents.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love it! The professors are wonderful and extreemly helpful. My classmates are a very diverse group and that's

exciting for me.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are so many options regarding academics at my school. I registration process is extreemly easy and the

workload can be as easy or difficult as you choose it to be.

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.
