The University of West Alabama is a fantastic University. UWA is fantastic because it is a small university so that means everyone is familiar with each other. Knowing each other provides a family type environment that makes me like feel I'm at home.
The professor knew who I was just by my major. That was a big thing for me. The campus is the right size, everything is within walking distance. The dorm rooms were very spacious as well as the bathroom. I loved the atmosphere of the school and how everyone was so helpful and nice.
Great school! The professors and teachers are are really dedicated and available. The campus life is interactive and offers a broad range of activities available for everyone. It’s located in a small town so there isn’t much to do but neighboring towns are pretty active.
This place is a great place. It's a home away from home for sure. I love it here and would advise to those wanting a safe college to attend here. Our football team is one of the best in the NCAA. The scarlet band is an amazing band. Overall this school became my top choice after a tour took place.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of West Alabama is 53%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would give positive advice telling them to choose a college that best fits their personality. If they enjoy being away from and love meeting new people then maybe they would like to attend a big college or if they like smaller classrooms and one on one interactions with their professors then they might want to look into a smaller college. I would definiately tell them to tour schools and talk with advisors to see what college their more comfortable with. To make most of their college experience i would tell them to study hard, meet new people, and get involved in the classroom.
My sons are ettending here so I get to spend more time with them!
UWA is a great school. The classes and teachers are great. The campus is beautiful and spread out. The school offers wonderful extra activities. UWA offers things such as concerts,activity nights, clubs, comedians and illusioists come for intertainment. Although UWA is small it is not to small. You get to know alot of people and really feel like you are entering a family. As for faternities and soroity life it is graet. they are not all about alchohol realated activies. They focus on tradition and good clean fun. As you can see evrything abou the uwa life is wonderful.
That studying in college was needed a lot more than in High School. It took me a long time to learn the proper way to study.
