The school is small but it a large campus. I love the resources the school offers. It has a lot of activities to get involve in. They are quickly to solve problems if it is bought to their attention. The cafeteria needs to be open longer for the students to receive hot food from the steam tables not the grill.

My overall experience at The University of West Alabama was fantastic. I made a lot of friends, and the people and professors were all very nice and helpful. The town is smaller then what I am used to but it was still beautiful. All of the buildings and classrooms were nice and they are still upgrading! The class size is no more then 30 students which fit me perfectly. I enjoy the smaller class room size because I can learn better and the professor knows who you are instead of being in a 200 student lecture hall.

UWA is a great place for all people. It's very diverse in personalities, and the teachers truly care about your success. It's very easy to get involved anywhere on campus.
