Alabama is an amazing experience and it opens up so many opportunities for their students-past and current. The atmosphere is very welcoming and you will always see a smiling face somewhere out in the crowd. The place to be would definitely be on The Quad soaking up some sun or playing a friendly game of flag football.

I'm a senior, and looking back, I've had a great experience. I've been able to be involved in many more opportunities than I would have gotten at my state's flagship school, or any other 'name' school for that matter. UA is becoming much more well known, and more than 50% of its students are from out of state.
