I Fell in Love – The campus is beautiful, the people are almost always nice and friendly, and the courses I've taken have been pretty decent so far. If you want a big school experience, you will love bama.

Tuscaloosa is a famous large college town with many new apartment buildings and housing. All conveniently located to the campus. Your freshman year you are required to live on campus. After that you may choose to stay on campus or explore the off-campus housing.

Really Not Sure Yet – I will be going to BAMA Bound this week and will be instructed in more detail. During our campus tour we were told there is very little need for a car, that everyone walks to class,. Your dorm is located within the area of your school of study making it much accessible.. Each semester there is a $250 parking permit for both in state and out of state students. As many students that BAMA has and limited parking spaces there is little to no need your freshman year for a car on campus. They do have multilple parking decks for guests, professors and some students at a reasonable daily rate. At BAMA Bound I will find out where I am assigned to park by my dorm to and where on campus as well. They have different colored decals for different areas on campus. I will be finding all about the parking soon.

I had a terrible expierence. My advisor wasn't helpful, my classes were over filled. If i had to choose again, I would not choose ua.
College Junior 2012-06-05T14:54:11Z
Everything about the education that I recieved at UA was average, from the teachers, to the classes, tests, and quizzes. My highschool career was more vigerous than my time spent in class at UA.

Drinking Is Life – If you don't drink and party, there is nothing to do on or around campus. Before and after every big event everyone gets together and drinks. When there is nothing else to do, you get together with your friends and drink. Tuscaloosa has nothing else to offer but alcohol to bored college students.
College Junior 2012-06-05T14:41:53Z
Large Variety. No Real Tolerence. At UA many races, religions, creeds, ethnecities, and peoples are present, but unless you're a white male, your opinion doesn't count for anything.

The Teacher Are What Make the Class – Many teachers are people first teachers second and by that I mean, if you go to your teacher and explain a certain situation be it attendance or help with work they will do the up most to help you. The school it's self do have policies that make some classes hard to bear, but as with most school if you have a teacher who knows what he is talking about and what he is doing you should learn something while also getting a good grade.

It's Very Fickle – The dining halls on campus all open at 7 and close at various times. There is only one dining hall open during late nights and it's on one of the edges of the campus, so if you're on the opposite side get ready to spend money. The food it's self is very hit miss other than Fresh Foods which is the best place on campus to get food. The staff is very rude at times but have kind hearts and will open up to you after awhile.

Greek Is Sheek! At the University of Alabama if you're a Greek you probably are known within a large group of the school. The Greek chapters are very friendly with each other so you will almost always have a friend who is in a different frat or sorority than you, but still be best friends.

Getting to the School Is the Hard Part! The school's nearest airport is in Birmingham which is a few hours away, so if you live a few states, the Virginia's and Ohio's, it's a hassle getting home for break. Once hear the school provides you with more than enough transportation. They have a bus system which runs from 7 to 11 and after that they have a taxi service which is free which you can call to get where you need to go. They also provide plenty of parking spaces for those who come with cars, so feel free to bring you car on campus.

The University of Alabama has a huge tradition of excellence in sports. We have fourteen national championships in football, six under Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant.

I'm a premed biology major, so my classes are challenging, but my adviser and my prehealth adviser is a tremendous help in picking out classes and making sure I am on the right track for medical school.

I have not personally had an internship yet, but my roommate went to a fair and was offered a summer internship to Mercedes Benz as an engineering major. In addition, the Honors College has resources for finding internships, and AED, the prehealth association, will help in finding shadowing opportunities.

Science and Engineering Complex – The University of Alabama is in the process of completing stages of the brand-new Science and Engineering Complex. Located by Shelby Hall, which houses chemistry, and Rogers Library, the science library, the buildings are super nice and feature modern labs and classrooms. Professors do their personal research in these buildings, and they all surround a nice courtyard.

Biology Major – As a premed biology major, I have many challenging courses as well as lots of hard decisions to make regarding class choices and certain professors. However my major advisor is a huge help, and the premed advisors will make sure you are on the right track for medical school.

Health & Safety:
Bama on Safety – Bama's campus is generally very safe. It's a small area and is very well lit.
Recent Alumnus 2012-05-24T00:55:08Z
Bama at Night – The main two areas to go out in Tuscaloosa are student areas and they are relatively small. Everything is within walking distance. There are plenty of police around so its pretty safe. There can just be some race discrimination at certain places sometimes.
Recent Alumnus 2012-05-23T04:29:12Z
There are alot of people of different races on this campus, of course the majority are caucasian but there are no real problems dealing with racial issues. Racial issues are somewhat present in the greek system due to the white greeks and black greeks ignoring each others presence, but that is a small community of a very large school.

Roll Tide – The University of Alabama is known mostly for the Football team and rightfully so. Alabama currently has 14 National Football Championships and is in the best conference in the nation, the SEC. The students come out and support and are filled with school spirit for every sport especially football and the school is dedicated to the support of all teams. Almost every sport has their own stadium and training facility on campus. Alumni and fans near and far come to tuscaloosa for home games making every game a spectacle.

The Best – Tuscaloosa is a college town, so there are apartments galore for students all over. Student apartments are all inclusive for the most part to help students keep costs low and still enjoy the college experience.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
