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.

The University of Montevallo is such a unique and diverse campus. The professors encourage the best that a student can offer as well as providing them the learning techniques and tactics they need. I've had such an amazing 2 years so far and I cannot wait to intertwine myself within the small culture that the students and professors have at the University of Montevallo.
