    I'm on a great scholarship, and if you qualify, UA is very generous to high stat students, and this makes UA very affordable for most families. The suite dorms are expensive, so your first year on campus will be expensive no matter what.

    Don't get me wrong, The University of Alabama is amazing, but I am paying almost $40,000 a year out-of-state and that is with scholarships. I had a 4.0 GPA in high school, so the higher your ACT score the more money you will receive.

    At the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter they do puppy happy hour. You can take out a dog from the animal shelter for the day (within the time constraints) for FREE! You need to have a car or know someone with a car to be able to get there. Definitely worth the 10 minute drive of campus!

    UA has great scholarship opportunities which make the price more manageable, however the cost of college in general is still very high, from tuition to books to class fees to any other costs. While sometimes its easy to get caught up in the money issue, it is also easy to see all of the benefits of UA. There are some great professors that really teach you valuable things for your future career. There are advisors willing to give you career advice. There are ways to start networking or conducting research to get a leg up in your intended field. UA can be as worth it as you make it.
