What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama is the perfect place for me to explore who I really am as a person. I am getting a great education that will set me up to become such a successful person and do big things in this world. I cannot be more satisfied with what this University has offered me. I am so blessed to have access to so many opportunists to help me succeed in life. Whether it's free tutoring or intramural sports, this University has it all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The quality of the academics is fine. Their tuition is over priced, like any college. Book use is restricted to those written by the staff to prevent outside purchase of less expensive books. This is a problem. Sometimes sports interferes with classroom time, even if you are not in one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before visiting The University of Alabama, I have only seen pictures of the campus and heard about it from others. All I heard were good things, so I HAD to see it for myself. As soon as I stepped onto the campus I was in love. Every single person there is so polite and sweet; something you normally don't see in my town. There were many staff and students that were very approachable all throughout the campus. I had made three friends from just going on one tour. Two of those people being Juniors at the school already. The campus is even more beautiful than the pictures shown on social media. The University of Alabama has everything I want from housing to academics, and I really want to make it possible to go there without having to worry about being in debt.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama is the perfect school. Everybody down here is super friendly and is always trying to help you out of the goodness of their heart. The professors and teaching assistants will help you in any way possible; all you have to do is ask. I definitely feel like the University of Alabama is giving me all of the resources I need to succeed in life, and I wouldn't trade that for the world. The social aspect on campus is fantastic as well. There are hundreds of different student groups to join, so people can build great relationships with people of similar interest. While Greek Life is somewhat common, it is by no means necessary in order to have a great time. Students here also have a lot of fun watching sports from football to basketball to even gymnastics. The environment here is always excited and pleasant, and I highly recommend the University of Alabama to every high school student out there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama is a place of opportunity and value. It pushes students to be the best they can be and to catch their dreams. This university is such an awesome place with so much opportunity. Socially, and Academically, the students succeed and the University pushes them to succeed. I want to graduate from there and succeed as well!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school, a little heavy on the party scene. Football dominates everything in the fall. Greek life is prevalent, but not all consuming. There are plenty of ways to get involved if you're not Greek. It can feel like academics can fall to the way side sometimes, but the University focuses on keeping strong academics, small class sizes, and passionate professors who are great at teaching. There are lots of opportunities to give feedback.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school, full of passionate people but it is difficult to socialize outside of Greek life or any other organizations. The teachers are usually passionate about the material they teach, but they always appreciate it when student show initiative and visit them in office hours, especially if it is a larger class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama is a great place to get the college experience. There's something for everybody here, no matter who you are. Even though this is a big campus, once you get into the classes pertaining to your major, the class sizes get very small and very personable. All of my professors know my name and seem to really care about my success. I love the opportunities that are available to me, right at my fingertips. If I want to join a sports team, I can, or if a scholar bowl is more your speed, you can totally do that. You're into religious studies? There are bible studies and Islamic groups all over campus. There really is something for everybody, and the staff/ students are so nice. You really get a taste for southern culture.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama really is a very good skill. Although the Academics are not ranked the highest in the nation, you'll find that the professors are very invested in the students and are almost always accessible. I had my reservations about the school before I came, mostly about the academic rigor I was going to be subject to, but it held up to my standard. It may not show on the rankings but you'll be more than happy about the education you'll receive.
