University of North Alabama Top Questions

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


As a small university, UNA has a wonderful staffs and professors. I'm from Vietnam and I was struggling by language, culture and educational system. I was so scared that professors will be bossy but no, all professors here were willing to help me one way or another. They don't mind if they have to sit with me for hour and explain something over and over and. To me, it seems like they treat me as a friend, a daugter, and grandaugter. I feel I'm a part of it and I'm welcomed here.


I wish that I had known that I would end up attending this school in the end. If I had, I might have simply gone here first.

I wish I would have known more about how to aquire my credits. Like how it takes 40 hours to finish up being a freshmen. It would have made things alot easier if I would have had someone to tell me everything that I needed to do , example someone to advise me on my financial aid and to just give me advice on classes and professors.
