What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love being a student at UA. We are a diverse community/campus that unite as one. The professors, academics and overall student life is great. Each specific college has something unique to offer to each student. University personnel strive to live by the “Capstone Creed” and make the university a prestigious place to be obtaining your degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama is probably the best decision I have ever chosen. Just by attending orientation, I knew the school was for me. The teachers and staff want you to be successful and you can tell by the way they teach, their availability, and the amount of encouragement they give you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I’m asked where I am about to attend college, and I respond The University of Alabama, I’m asked the follow up question: are you going to play football? While I usually see this as negative perception due to my weight and skin color, it could also be a testament to Bama’s extremely influential football program. Bama has great academic programs that benefit all students on campus, yet it is overshadowed by its massive success of its football team over numerous decades, the Crimson Tide. The massive following of Bama’s football team is quite amazing as it makes the school very recognizable to nearly everyone you meet. I cannot count how many times I have heard someone yell Bama’s rallying cry “Roll Tide” everywhere I went because of the merchandise I have worn. Honestly, having your school recognized by people you have never met makes you extremely proud of your school. Besides the popularity of the football program, Bama specializes in various majors such as business, marketing, engineering, and journalism. Knowing that journalism was a very popular major on campus added to my interest in the school. There are many organizations to join outside of academics, yet many students are drawn to its Greek life. Bama has the number one Greek life organizations in the United States and some of the biggest Greek houses in the nation. I won’t be joining a fraternity myself, but the influence on campus culture is tempting. Overall, my advice to anyone who is considering The University of Alabama is be prepared to love football and yell roll tide regularly, but do not slack on what matters most: education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama is a fantastic school to attend or even just visit, It offers if students so many courses, and opens up door for fine opportunities. If you are looking into schools, UA should be one of the picks. Nothing feels better than feeling loved the minute you walk onto a campus. As always Roll Tide!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school that's not for the weak minded. You have to be determined and not easily distracted if you want to enjoy the experience while doing right in the class. There isn't anyone holding your hand to make sure you're going to class. If you can balance fun and getting your work done it's the best experience ever because there's always something to do to enjoy yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama. Some people come here for the football. Having won six national championships under Nick Saban and seventeen overall it is easy to see why. Others come here for the Greek life. With over eleven thousand students actively involved in fraternities and sorority’s once again it is easy to see why. While yet others will come for the academic experience and the extremely generous scholarships that the University gives out. For those unaware a 32-36 ACT and a 3.5 or higher GPA earns you $25,000 a year from the University. So once again it is obvious why students chose the University of Alabama. Whether you want to join a fraternity, get your law degree or enjoy game days Alabama has experiences, clubs, and events that cater to every whim and fancy. Just like me you’ll be able to find a home here. For the more traditional review criteria Alabama also manages to excel. It is ranked 129th in the nation in terms of all colleges. There is a plethora of recreational facilities, from tennis courts, to fully equipped gyms complete with saunas. There is also an array of dining halls to choose from with my personal favorite being the one located near the engineering quad called Fresh Foods. Continuing there are clubs for every taste. There is a fantasy football club, a spike ball club, and for the ladies even a Victoria’s Secret club just to name a few. Alabama really is the place where dreams are made. I cannot recommend it enough and have enjoyed thoroughly my time here.
