It’s amazing, incredible, and legendary in itself. There’s not enough words to explain how the camaraderie , atmosphere, and experience is here. It’s everything you’d want it to be and more and I’ve only been here 2 weeks. I’m ready to experience more , have more, and do more. :)
The University of Alabama is, in my opinion, the best college that the state of Alabama has to offer. The campus itself is huge, it has some much to see and do you almost get lost. The students, staff, faculty, and professors are all very respectful and it would be out of the ordinary to see someone not being kind or at least open up a door for you. The university has two on campus dining halls that always provide a large array of food and selection options such has vegan, gluten-free, or any type of diet that a student would be on. It allows for accessibility so that way students don't have to spend extra on their lifestyle. Of course, the school has a big football culture, majority of students come to the university because of the football games and athletics. Not to mention the communities the school has to offer too, there are so many groups, organizations, clubs, etc. that one could join and thrive in. The University of Alabama has a lot to offer and doesn't disappoint their students. I recommend the university to whoever wishes to have a great college experience.
I am not an official student of The University of Alabama, but I hope to be one day. Alabama is a wonderful school! I’ve visited Alabama on multiple occasions. Some of the greatest people I have met graduated from Alabama. I have been inspired by many to apply and go here because of the wonderful faculty, staff and student body.
The University of Alabama is the best school anyone could go to. The professors were always available to help at any time. The amount of opportunities that were offered are endless. Whether you need tutoring, tech help, or even just someone to talk to, it was always available. The social scene was also amazing. There is something at BAMA for everyone. I could not run out of good things about The University of Alabama if I tried.
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
I mostly brag about our football program.
That they drink a lot. That we are abig party school.
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.
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!
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.
