This college is great for hands-on experience and in class learning. The teachers really care and are very knowledgeable in the area they teach. I have been able to take advantage of my teachers' office hours and really get to know them. I learned that they care about the progress their students make and how they are enjoying college. It is not simply about book smarts, teachers teach professional skills and life lessons. My first-year experience was so amazing, I would not have spent it anywhere else, because despite everything I learned so much and I am better because of...

  • Mar-01-2016 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The scholarships for both in state and out of state students are unbelievable. I cried when I received my automatic merit aid letter. In addition, the campus is energetic, yet comfortable and homey. And the football-- what else needs to be said?

    The University of Alabama is a beautiful campus to be on. (They even have some parks you can walk through to enjoy the scenery.) They always inform you have events or opportunities that are taking place on-campus and off-campus. It's very lively and easy to meet new people.

    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.

    It is a beautiful campus with a very diverse student body. There are activities for everyone, it is not just football. Don't get me wrong, football is huge here but there are so many other activities too. The instructors/professors are amazing and very helpful. I have also found it to be a pretty safe campus.

    The best school I've been to so far because of the sports and the atmosphere. The academics is one of the best and the teachers are very relatable and make the material easy to learn. The friends I have made here will stay with me for life and are some of the best people I could ever meet.
