3 College Junior

Weather: The weather can be "bipolar" at times especially during Spring and Fall since we can have days that are hot, but some cold. There's been days where the mornings were freezing,but afternoons were hot.

Summers are hot especially if you're not used to the southern heat and humidity and winters can vary, some years colder than others. It hardly ever snows but if it does, usually all schools will cancel for the day.

I suggest if there's a chance of rain, bring an umbrella just in case. There's been times when there was only a 20% chance and it rained while there's been a 50% chance and no rain.

Overall though I would say there are more beautiful weather days than not.

Campus Food: It is a typical campus buffet/dining set up. It is not awful but it is not the best/ healthiest food you will ever eat.

Campus Quality: I believe that Alabama has one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. I fell in love with the traditional look of the campus and they take really good care of preserving the older buildings and modernizing the dorms.

Parking: Everyone hates the parking. It is probably the most complained about aspect of the university.

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.
