It has its perks and benefits in some places and doesn't in others, but I've found that Montevallo is the best school for me and I absolutely love it! My only complaint would be the WiFi. It's not always reliable and we have (from what I've heard) one person and maybe two interns managing the WiFi, and the one in charge doesn't know what he's doing. They are doing their best, and fairly decent, but three people and unreliable WiFi is not a good idea for a university our size with the amount of students we have who needs Internet access in order to do most assignments.

The homecoming tradition, College Night, makes it an easy pick as far as liberal arts schools in the Southeast go. Since the classes are small, the teachers are much more readily available than say Auburn University or University of Alabama. I would choose this college again just for the experience of Montevallo! Ask anyone who is attending or has attended and they will tell you it is a completely unique experience.

I literally have my four years paid for at Montevallo (and I still have some left over), but only if I keep my grades up which has never really been a struggle for me. I was a "go getter" when it came to scholarships. I applied for anything and everything I could find. Montevallo's website has everything laid out perfectly. They are very helpful when it comes to financial aid. I emailed them about one scholarship and they told me I had already been awarded it without applying. There's your example right there!
