It is not really all in your face, but you can find it if you are looking. The University requires all freshmen to take classes on safety.

It changes every day sunny to rainy and cloudy then back to sunny

It constantly rains here making the walk to class and dining halls miserable. With so much rain sometimes I can not bring my computer with me because i am worried it might get water damage and no longer function properly.

A problem students face with the Yellow Pass is the distance they must walk back when there is no parking available near the students dorm. When the parking lot for Presidential, Highlands, and Ridgecrest is full students must drive to the Ferguson parking garage in order to park. The Ferguson parking garage is over a fifteen-minute walk for each one of these dorm rooms. This becomes very stressful when its raining or a student has groceries to carry back
With the lack of parking space available a second problem students with the Yellow Pass encounter is the distress of leaving their spot. Students are afraid they will lose their spot and have to park fifteen-minutes away.

Since Alabama's football team has won three of the last four national championships the university is able to constantly build up to date facilites.
For example, the university just built a brand new dorm called Presidential. Presidential is one of the biggest if not the biggest dorms on campus. Presidential houses nearly a thousand students. Currently the university is building a second Presidential building with a fitness center connecting the two buildings together.
The construction of a second building will mean close to two-thousand students will be living near each other with a brand new fitness center
to keep everyone healthy alongside a friendly social place.

The facilites on campus are like no the other university. The athletic facilities are top-notch, as are the labs and libraries.
With constant construction of new buildings the campus is always up to date with the best and most technological facilites.
The construction of the new facilites also match the look of the older ones to keep the same scenery.

We actually reviewed the transportation on campus in my intro to Civil Engineering class last semester. The buses suck: they don't run on time and are overcrowded when it's raining. There aren't really enough bike racks near the really big/popular buildings and sometimes you must choose between riding on the sidewalk or on the roads, which is dangerous at points due to lots of car traffic and reckless student drivers. Then when you're walking you run the risk of getting hit by a bus, bike, or car. You're almost better off just not going to classes.

ALL the cars and NONE of the parking spaces! The construction on campus really magnifies the lack of parking on campus and the current construction on the parking deck by Riverside has escalated the problem.

Mostly it's for 21 or older because lots of bars that under age kids can get into charges expensive amount of money and it's really overrated. I rather recommend you to go local parties or get into fraternity party. It's much fun and easily socialize

I honestly don't see that many drugs problem because Tuscaloosa police department have always secure with the drug problem so students gets not that many scene.
College Sophomore 2013-02-24T03:21:25Z
The computers are okay. Printing is .05 a page, which can get very expensive. Overall, computers are usually available yet being able to print can become a problem because of the price.
College Sophomore 2013-02-24T03:17:48Z
Everyone is very accepting of everyone else. The campus itself is very welcoming and warm.

I came into Alabama undeclared but quickly found that food and nutrition was my calling! The courses are really interesting and each of my professors are always so willing to help me! I feel very prepared for each class following the prerequisites and think that having good study habits will help you!
College Sophomore 2013-02-23T18:23:27Z
Professors are always around to talk! Also, the course that is very manageable! I feel well-prepared for my field of study!
College Sophomore 2013-02-23T18:16:56Z
Pretty Affordable and some are really close to campus! Many have shuttles to assist student without cars when they live off campus. They have high security and I never feel unsafe!

There are several restaurants and desert places within walking distance from the campus.

There are many international students and several different race students. But most students at this university are white.

University of Alabama is in a town called Tuscaloosa. The town its self might not be the best but the college area is. There are many strips with bars, restuarants and shopping that make it extremely fun and vibrant.

Being a student that is studying operations management the opportunities are endless. By the i graduate I will have completed a co-op with mercedes-benz manufacturing in vance al, an internship with chattanooga seating systems in chattanooga, tn (build the seats for VW) and an internship in Germany with ZF. Once i graduate I have no doubt I will have an array of jobs to choose from.
The major is also really small, so all your professors know you by name and want to you succeed and become a successful student and adult.

Where there is a will there is a way. You surround yourself with the crowd you choose to be with. So if you are with people that do drugs, then most likely you will end up choosing to do them eventually. It all depends on how strong you are to say no. For some, its easier than others.
College Senior 2013-02-18T03:45:44Z
liked living on campus. the only thing i didnt like was the fact that I lived in a jack and jill type room and had to share the room with another person. The space was small enough and it caused occasional problems
College Senior 2013-02-18T03:42:26Z
I live close to campus and dont have a car right now.
College Sophomore 2013-02-17T22:00:19Z
There is a lot of options but the food is not quality

The library has both mac and PC's that are always available for students. They were able to print for a small fee with the use of their action card. Lloyd hall has a computer lab on the bottom floor with PC's and Reese Phifer, directly beside the stadium, has computer labs accompanied with macs. The internet connections are always fast and reliable in any location you go.

We have tornadoes here during the spring. The only major tornado that affected the area drastically was the April 27th tornado in 2011. Classes were let out early that day and the people that were on campus were put in safe places. The university did a good job of communicating to students through email and text messages, especially for those who didn't have access to a television. The f4 tornado left a horrible impact on the campus and the city of Tuscaloosa, but as a community we have come together to rebuild the area and make it even better and safer than before. Other than tornadoes, we have thunderstorms and lots of rain here and there, but the university usually delays classes if the weather is harsh enough.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
