Football season is the reason for a night life in Tuscaloosa. If your 21 and up consider yourself to have a great time but under that limit watch out for the cops. To get around cabs will charge you for high fares so be mindful of that, the clubs normally start charging (21 and older) $5 and up for underage people that varies from $10 and up. The city stays busy with fans, friends and family all throughout the week and your never bored. Just walking on "the strip" which is the most popular area you will have live music playing and people eating along the restaurant patio areas. There are always parties on the weekends and endless fun on the quad in the center of campus before the games starts. When football season ends in December or January (if team wins the National Championship) the town is a complete snooze fest. However gymnastics, basketball and baseball still cause the city to still have life but being here for almost 4 years going downtown gets old.

Tuscaloosa has a wide selection of apartments the cheaper the apartment the worst off the location expensive the apartment better location and amenities to assist you. On campus they provide an apartment day fair for students in search for a new place to call home after the dorm life style ends. Watch out for the fun contests and early discount rates if you get convinced to sign a lease early that means your living there! Just do your research before making anything final by talking to current residents and there is always someone on campus that can assist you with further information.

The student organizations are enforcing a drug free campus but there are a number of students who disagree with banding smoking. Alcohol is the most common drug in social settings but other controlled substances are hidden that was until the local police did a huge drug bust of over 80 students going to jail. This incident happening alarmed others who partake in these hobbies to stop especially on campus but pushing the issue more could be better voiced . Peer pressure, stress, financial problems, and COLLEGE etc can lead one to resulting to drugs but that doesnt make it okay. Sure when that time of the year rolls around to be drug free the campus gets into an uproar of promoting it but that should always be a common topic. We could do better to save lives!!!

Drugs will be found at any college you attend. It really depends on who you associate yourself with.

Lakeside dining hall should be avoided. The food gets progressively worse the longer the year goes on. Fresh foods is continuously good. Burke is also consistently good. Bryant is the best place to eat, by far.

I mean, it's weather. It changes. Most of the time it's beautiful, but you can also go for days without seeing the sun.

Having the largest population of greek students doesn't help UA's cause, but the non greeks drink just as much as the greeks do. Adderall and weed are the two most abused drugs on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T21:20:55Z
There's not much of a tolerance for being drunk in public or being caught with drugs. Cheating is pretty hit or miss, though. Some professors will just tell you personally not to do it again, but others will report you.

My housing is great but I have two other roommates living with me in my dorm.

There are a lot of scholarships but sadly I didn't receive any awards

Campus life in the University of Alabama is always filled with school pride and lots of Roll Tides. There are thousands of student clubs where anyone can join.
College Freshman 2013-07-08T00:58:37Z
Excellent I love campus dining because it close to my dorm and with me being a freshman I get the unlimited meal plan which is great for me cause I always get the munchies.
College Sophomore 2013-07-05T16:56:38Z
Some of the dorms are pretty small if you are on a tight budget. Sharing these rooms with a roommate can be very challenging.

Health & Safety:
There are blue safety phones located all around campus for everyone's use if trouble arises.

There is nothing like tailgating on the quad for game day!! The team spirit that everyone has is awesome.

I like the diverse affordable housing that is still in walking distance to campus. Since the tornado hit the campus, many updates have been made.
College Sophomore 2013-07-05T06:17:51Z
I am a secondary science education major, and so far my experience has been fantastic. All of my classes have been very enriching, and my professors have been kind and energetic. My workload was pretty heavy first semester because I was in the marching band, but the next semester was much easier on me. The facilities on campus are beautiful. I love the campus. There are a pretty good number of job opportunities if you keep your options open.
College Sophomore 2013-07-05T06:14:13Z
Most professors really love what they teach, and their teaching performance reflects that. The honors classes are especially enriching.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
