The University of Montevallo is the only public liberal arts college in Alabama and is part of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. The center of campus is a designated National Historic District, which features the James Wylie Shepherd Observatory, one of few in the world accessible to people of all disabilities. Montevallo is also home to the Ebenezer Swamp Ecological Preserve, 60-acres of wetlands and trees that are dotted with recycled-steel artwork created by UM students. “The Swamp” is used for multiple biology and environmental science classes.
This school has small classes sizes which allows a more focused and close relationship between student and teacher which is very beneficial. The campus itself is beautiful and antique with its tall trees and fresh walking grounds. Montevallo is a Arts and Science school and expresses great appreciation for students abilities and talents in everything from theatre to basketball.
