College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had any experience with off campus living yet. I would not suggest it for incommoding freshman. I would recommend New Hall.

Administration: I have to say that it is the worst due to one cop who acted very rude and terrible to me. he even flicked off my friend. BUT not all campus cops are like that, most of them are pretty nice. However i still have to give it a one star because of that one cop that should be fired.

Scholarships: It was as easy as any other College Financial Aid. There is no separate application for scholarships so that was really nice.

Campus Food: Campus Food is Campus Food. It's not going to be Fantastic anywhere. I'm Pretty pleased with the Cafeteria, it just lacks variety sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a Freshman. I use to live at Beta, but it was extremely lonely. My roommate was never there and the Beta/Gama community is so excluded. everyone just kind of does their own thing. It's Great for Upper clansmen. but I HIGHLY recommend going to New Hall your first year. that is where i live now. It's so much nicer.

Overall Experience: Same applies to professors and courses. This place is nothing more than a sham and disappoint, USA is giant joke in regards to providing a good quality service to any student.

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Career and all Center Services on campus or off campus, where ever they may be, while associated with USA are deplorable. In phone, in person, email, etc.

If by chance you can actually get through to someone; they are rude, uninviting, always seemed bothered by your questions, don't want to help you, and will normally continue to transfer you through to an office where no one is (or they won't answer anyway), or they will give you an email address of someone they think can answer your question (in all reality they won't answer your emails either).

The place is a total joke and proceeds to amaze me how people go to work everyday and should care about their job but instead don't have to worry about a thing or be held accountable for any amount of customer service.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There's only 2 or 3 off-campus options for a college of thousands of students, in all age ranges, marital statuses, family situations, etc. So I don't see the few hundred off campus apartments at okay quality with outrageous prices helping anyone.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: It's Mobile, Alabama the food and restaurants represent the quality you would expect from a city like Mobile. Normally gross, greasy foods, with no higher standards or focus on quality or variety.

2 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: The parties on campus or downtown I went to just a few times until realizing it was a bunch of misbehaving, twenty year old criminals and wanna be thugs.

It was not a party scene I would want to affiliate myself with, it was dangerous, unruly, and inappropriate for college students to be acting that way.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Never lived in them (thank goodness). However, friends I visited in the dorms I felt very sorry for, poor quality, old, and extremely small with no amenities.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have heard mediocre things from people who live off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are mostly the typical fast foods places and restuarants. There are some places with variety but they are hard to find if you don't know where to look.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It doesn't seem to be very strict.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply early and for as much aid as you can.

Party Scene: I'm not a party goer.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining hall is overpriced with bad food and limited options. There is a Starbucks at the library which is good. The Java City is also bad and overpriced.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are a little old. There are some social events but aren't very varied in my opinion. The housing process doesn't take very long.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: best choices of fast food on campus

Off-Campus Housing: There are 3 main "student" apartments around campus. The price is okay but safety may be a concern.

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to go. From fast food to a sit down restaurant, you can find exactly what you are looking for. Well, except for if you are looking for German.

Administration: Unless you are making a huge scene you can get away with a lot of things
