University of Alabama students constantly brag about their school's traditions and spirit, and their pride is shown throughout the town. Some say it's the incredible education that drew them here, and others say it's Bama football that brought them to this Southern school. But no matter what reason these students choose to come to UA, most believe it was the best choice they could have made.
After graduation, some students get a job, some further their education by going to UA's grad school, and some even go to UA's law school. No matter what the students decide to do with their future, they believe Bama has prepared them for it. Students advise upcoming freshmen to walk around the Quad, visit the Strip, or watch a football game to understand why so many love UA.
I have met some really great guys and girls. And some really great frat guys and sorority girls. But as a whole frat guys are very typical. They don't seem to care much about anything other than hooking up and partying
I have never felt unsafe while walking around campus, even at night when I am alone. Although game day weekends, when visiting team fans hit the bars can make me feel uneasy.
There is always access to computers at the libraries. There are also quite a few libraries. There are desktops and laptops you can check out. However, the wireless internet in the dorms will sometimes give you trouble. You'll have no problem in the library, though.
We don't have the greatest shopping in Tuscaloosa, but you can always go to Birmingham or Mobile. I think a lot of people shop online. It's helpful to me so I manage my money better. But Target, Walmart, and grocery stores are all there. My favorite thing to do is head to the lake on warm days. There are plenty of outdoor things to do in Alabama. You can also hit up the bars on the strip and downtown at night. I've never had a bad experience with local residents. They love the school.
I would say Bryant and Burke are your best choice for food. Lakeside isn't the best, but they do have late night options. There are other options than just dining halls and there are a lot of places to eat on the strip.
