SIerra - 04/23/2024

I like being at UNA. When I first came here it was a little hard because I moved away from my family but I made friends quickly here. I was on the color guard and that was a lot of fun the games were always the best. I struggled with my major for the longest and I do have to say that some of the courses here are tough. I left nursing school and became an English major soon after. They can be strict here if you're a nursing major but it can be worth all the stress to be the best nurse you can be. Classes are fun and the professors are always ready to help. There are many events always happening on campus so you will never be bored.

I think it is a good school. There are many opportunities to learn and grow as a person. There are many events that happen throughout the week and it is easy to meet people. The professors are generally good and are available for meeting either in person or online.

The University of North Alabama has been great so far. I have only been here for a semester, and will be leaving before the spring semester begins, but everyone has been so welcoming and helpful! Teachers are quite accessible and really push you to succeed.

Terronica - 05/10/2022

Very good school ike any school, this was our first year back since COVID and you can tell this school really tried to make an effort in bringing our North Alabama community together. I attend this school and love their teachers. They always attend the events that are held. I loved the real lion mascot and creative ways to get students to do something outside their school. I really enjoyed all the projects they held even though we couldn't be on campus. This school really cares about their families and wanted the best for these children's education.

  3. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    University of North Alabama is a small school, where we have small classes and all porfessors and staffs are so nice and willing to help individual when they needed help but the worst thing about it is it has small number of parking places. As a feshman, students are not allowed to park on campus, they have to park couple miles away and take a bus to school. Sometimes, we have to drive around for 15 minutes find a parking place and sometimes we ended up by late for class. I hope school will ix that problem soon.

  13. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    This school has a very beautiful campus and is large but not too large to where you can walk to pretty much all the buildings. The teacher to student ratio is 1:20 which I like because it's much easier to talk to them about stuff I might be having problems with and the classrooms aren't super packed with students. Everyone I have encountered in every department like financial aid, admissions, etc is very friendly and helpful. My advisor is very helpful and seems to care about my future. I've seen this with my other teachers too.

    A day that I will never forget is this one time me and a few friends were playing Dungeons and Dragons, and we didn't have class the next day so we stayed up VERY late.
