Academically, the nursing and education programs dominate. Outside the classroom, we're best known for having Terry Bowden as our football coach.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Living on-campus, at least for your first year, is a great way to get to know people and acclimate yourself to the school. Dorm life forces you to get out of your comfort zone (it's hard to be shy when you share a bathroom with 20 other girls) and is probably one of the easiest ways to make friends. Take your schoolwork seriously and learn to prioritize, even if it means ordering Chinese and studying while your friends go out. Get to know your professors and build relationships with them; you will be glad you did when you get your grades back or you need a recommendation letter. Most importantly, be yourself, even if it's not what everyone else on campus is doing. Diversity is a good thing.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In finding the right college, students should be aware that it takes time and effort and that it's something that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Therefore, when finding the right college, parents and the students should visit at least three colleges of interest and compare/contrast each one of them. This system usually helps weed out one college that will not be suitable. Also, students should make sure the colleges offer programs in which they are intending on pursuing. Finding out from the start if the college even offers the program can save alot of time and energy. Furthermore, when choosing a college students should keep in mind the social life on campuses. If the student is very interactive and wants to be involved with extracirricular activities, then schools that are greek affiliated should be kept in mind. On the other hand, for those students who are looking to get in and out of college quickly should focus more on the schools that are not so much greek oriented.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about the University of North Alabama is this number of students who attend the school. The classes are not enourmously huge and they are just the right size for me. The type of learner that I am is hands-on and I like to be interactive with my professors, which can be difficult if the classes are ridiculous in size.

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

The worst thing is that I think people put way too much into football and sports.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There are students that should stay home for the first year of college because the change is to much the balance the finaical, class schedule, work schedule, and social schedule. If someone is used to having someone do everything for them, they are one of the students that need to stay home for the first year.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to the student is that they should visit the colleges of their choice. They should get a feel of what campus life and activity is like for that particular school. They should also consider their financial status before making the decision on what college to attend. College can drain you financially and some might not find that comfortable. Most of all the student must include their major/course of study as a part of the decision on choosing a school.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish i had known the financial burden that I had faced. Otherwise, everything else was pretty well adaptable and satisfying

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To choose the right school for you ask yourself are you easily distracted from school work? Do you value your social life over your classwork? Do you know what you want to do with your life? My advice would be if you are very social, but have your priorities in line I would attend a bigger college that you have your heart set on. Do not let your friends talk you into going with them because you will always have them as your friends and will meet new people and have new fun experiences. If you are like me and worried about how you are going to pay for the college of your choice there are a lot of grants, scholarships, and student loans available to help financially. Attending college is a one in a lifetime opportunity to improve your education and experience the world and to grow as an individual. If you have the chance to go to college do not pass you by you will regret it. The experiences you have will make you, who you are today and build a the framework for a wonderful career through the education you obtained at the university you choose.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

The transition will be hard, but do not give up everyone experiences being homesick. Be open to new people it is easy to meet new people and do not be afraid to hang out and make new friends.

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

The worst thing about this school is the cheapest dorm rooms. They are small and they smell, but you will meet some a lot of people and make good friends.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

My school is very unique beacuse in the first month or so everyone knows each other. Not to mention everyone is easy to get along with and friendly. UNA has alot of school spirit like any other school but UNA to me goes all out. We are a D-2 school so ever sport that we have we cheer each one on the same. We are very supportive of one another and ITS JUST A GREAT SCHOOL to make firends and have study buddies.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When graduating out of high school and its your senior year, you look for a college that is going to best suit you and your parents. You want to make sure that you're going to have the college experiance but also maintain your grades and meet new friends. In my case University of North Alabama (UNA) was the best choice for me. Its some what of a large college which means few parties and more studying. The teachers and advisors at UNA are there to help you and makse sure that everything you need for college and are trying pursue in college is there for you. UNA would be the best college for anyone that wants to have the college experiance, meet friends that are frinedly, and teachers/advisors that are willing to help you strive for your goal in life when you graduate and are in the real world.

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

The worse thing that I can say about my school is that its a little far away from home, but once you get to know people you realize that some of the students are als far away from home and that youre really closer then others.

It's close to home, which makes it very convenient.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is important to know what you want to study before you start. That way you can find the college that offers that program. Then you can choose the school that fits into your price range. Once you find the right college and begin your studies, do your best to make good grades and to stay on top of things. However, make sure that you have room in your life for other things as well. Try to make the most of the experience, and let Jesus be your focus through it all.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When you are searching for the right college or university to attend make sure that you can recieve some finanicial assistance. Some other things to consider, college offer on or off campus living, meal plan, and what programs do they offer? You should also look at the community surrounding the college or university.

Do not choose a school for social reasons. Choose the school that you will be the most sucessful in, but do consider social factors (just do not make that the sole reason of your choice).

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

Some of the professors do not take their job seriously.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I wouldn't tell anyone how to live in college but to experience college with an open mind. Time in college will be an experience to learn how one will be able to live in the world with out any holding your hand. I would tell the parents not worry about their sons or daughter because they have to let them make their own mistakes and learned how to solve them by themselves only to have the parents help when its an extremely situation. I would tell a student coming in to college to live their life the fullest while their because this is an experience that will open their minds to difficult situations but they will have to learn how to live with it. Don't make a big situation about finding the correct college to go into just find a college that you will feel comfortable to live in and willing to spend your life their for the next four years. College will help you make who you are before starting your career in life.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

How tests would be taken and that I would need more time to study for tests. Also, how to write better papers.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any kind of person can attend this school it all depends on how the person feels with a helpful and friendly environment.
