Alabama has become my home away from home. The college and environment has allowed me to find myself and discover what I am truly passionate about. Professors are always available and advisors always answer in a timely manner. Any student can tell they WANT you on this campus and stay accessible for help. The facilities and programs offered seem infinite. With the career center, tutoring, writing center, academic coaching (just to name a few) there is no reason a student should feel like they are not doing well academically, there are so many resources at your fingertips. As for the extracurricular activities, there is absolutely nothing like spending a Saturday in October cheering on the Crimson Tide Football Team at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The South is passionate about college football, and Alabama seems like the holy grail of it all. The fan base for UA is enormous for all sports, even the intramural sports constantly have a crowd! I could write an entire essay of Alabama and the community, but I'll leave it at this for now. As always, Roll Tide!!
Being African American at the University of Alabama has proven to be great to my surprise. The University does not tolerate racism. The campus is extremely beautiful and will kept. The dorms are dorms, students live in them and you know how we are. There are plenty of activities on and off campus all the time. The University has a bus transit system that even services several of the off campus housing complex. The professors are amazing and very prepared to teach. The Greek life is on steroids but in a good way. And of course there nothing like a great BAMA football game- Roll Tide!
The University of Alabama is one of the PWI in the state of Alabama. I can what makes the school stand out to me are the faculty/staff and the student-led organizations. Once you find your people at the Tide, the campus starts to feel smaller and home.
I really enjoy going here. My classes tend to be interesting and cause me to be excited about learning. Additionally, football here is a major thing, which gives all the students the ability to have something to look forward to on the weekends. Athletics here are highly valued, but so are the academics. The professors here generally care about their students.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for The University of Alabama is 52%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Have fun but always keep education first. You will not like every professor or class but push through it. Find what you are good at and try to be the best you can be at it. You have to like what you do to be successful.
My classmates were very interactive with disscusions.
Although challenging, the academics live up to the reputation of a great school.
Life at The University of Alabama is all I could hope for. The campus is beautiful. The properties are well maintained and it has an air of real safety on campus.
I immediately got involved in Greek Life and found a sisterhood beyond compare. Being an only child and then coming the UA and Delta Gamma I have a family that is better than anything I ever imagined.
A motivated individual who enjoys a challenge would enjoy attending the University of Alabama. The academics and extra curricular activities are well suited for everyone, no matter what you like!
Everyone here is friendly and has a lot of school spirit, but they are not always accepting of different views.
Aside from football, I feel a lot of activities revolve around Greek Life. But, I'm probably bias.
I had a certain image and idea of what I thought the people and activities would be like when I got to Tuscaloosa based off of how life is in Birmingham, where my family is from. I wish I had known a little bit more of the southern culture and life because it is so different from where I grew up. This is not a bad thing, it actually has given me a new and opening experience.
so much outside activity going on, hard to stay focused
There is this energy that goes around that makes people just want to do good.
The campus is pretty big. Now that I'm used to it, it's not too bad, but at first it felt like a long way to walk just to get to classes. When your schedule doesn't allow much time between classes, it can be stressful to get to your next class. But for the most part, the professors are understanding.
It is a little embarrassing to say but while I was in high school everyone said that my college is a party college. We are notorious for our crazy football fans that often party on the weekends or after a game. Also we are well known for our great football team that has won in the Nationals this year.
I think the best thing about my school is the fact that faculty and students are able to work together to make our learning environment better for everyone. When students are in class they are expected to be respectful as are the educators. It is a great environment for learning and growing as a person.
Someone who is not interested in learning to be independent. The University of Alabama emplores you to take on new challenges and responsibilities. There are numerous oppurtunities to grow as an individual and experience many new facets of what life has to offer. Someone not prepared to branch out entirely would not be comfortable UA.
pretty much.... unless you go there
That they drink a lot. That we are abig party school.
I mostly brag about our football program.
I am Greek, and I love it. It was the right decision for me and it has made all the difference in my college experience. Going Greek isnt right for everyone, some people enjoy making friends on their own. Some dont have the time to devote to an active Greek life. Being Greek doesnt make you king of the school, it makes you a person with such a strong bond to your sisters and your campus that you cant help but want to be involved on campus. Some people find that bond without Greek life but I cant imagine my life any different without my sisters.
There are many different dorm options at the University of Alabama. Some are new than others. If you are looking for space and newer facilities, then Riverside or Ridgecrest are a good choice. Both these dorms were recently built. They include kitchens and living rooms. Each dorm unit sleeps 4 people with 2 bathrooms. However, for girls, most choose Tutwiler. This is because of the location. It is closest to campus and classes. Also, it is right next to sorority row which is a plus for those in sororities. However, Tutwiler is very old and has community bathrooms. For some people this is a major turn-off.
During Fall at Ua there is never a down time, its football football football! We play to win as it is the heart and soul of our campus. It brings our campus together, greeks with non greeks, republicans with democrats, you cant be angry at anyone on gameday. its the biggest festivities of the year! Roll Tide!
