The entire atmosphere is amazing at The University of Alabama. The campus is beautiful, from all the flowers, birds, squirrels and the wonders of nature. Walking to class is comforting, because everyone seems very friendly. My teachers have all been very willing to talk to me and answer any questions I have ever had thus far. They have very many students to keep track of, but actually going to them for guidance is your choice. Overall, I have been very pleased with the entire college experience given to me to this point.

Football spirit. I'm a sports fan so school spirit is so much fun!


The spirit and pride that my school displays is unlike any other!


The campus is beautiful and there's always something fun to do. It is a football school with southern traditions but there is something for everyone. Alabama feels like home to me. So many students, but we are all so close. I couldn't have made a better decision.


Our football team has won fourteen national championships. Football season is a fun time where high-spirited fans get together to have fun and share their common interests. Southerners are very nice, and we know how to have a good time together without judging.


It's spirit, community, social life, greek life, and competitive nature.


Something that is unique about UA campus is the "Quad". Here everybody loves to just lie in the grass and read books while people on the side of the quad just have a good time playing football or throwing the freesbie.


We have the quad where we tailgate on before games, as well as the famous Denny Chimes which lights up at night. It has a cute southern feel and is very well kept. It has a lot of personality with all of the huge fraternity houses and sorority row, with the large white columns it adds a homey feel.


The best thing about the University of Alabama is the pride. There is a strong comradery between those who attend the school. High expectations are the only acceptable standard at the university as everyone strives to be better. The university is ranked as one of the top public schools in the nation; and there are plenty of reasons to support that fact. Our academics are very strong, UAPD and the Tuscaloosa Police keep campus safe, and best of all, we have a spectacular campus. I'm proud to attend The University of Alabama and I've made the right schoice.


The academic challenges that are present here have puushed me to become a more effective student and an even more productive memeber of society. Another thing that the college has to offer is multiple opportunities to choose from and to participate in.


The UA has made a very large university a small university. Alabama has nearly 30K students but I do not feel like a number. UA offers progrms such as the Blount Initiative, the Honors College, the Fellow's Experience, and other programs and colleges to give a new student the ability to find like-minded people to help with networking, studying, and socializing. UA offers a large university with a small college feel.

I cant consider just one thing because I would be lying but, I must say our football team is the best thing at our school. Considering that we won the SEC championship game and the National Championship as well, Tuscaloosa and the university show a lot of support everyday!

I feel that my school has one of the greatest retention rates because their is an atmosphere of togetherness and family.
