It's good but nothing special. But it's just a dorm, so what can we expect? Overall good

I have never been to any parties on campus. I am a mom and work full-time!

Our Greek life is average. They are cliquey, but not exclusive.

Our campus Lion pride is very visible...on and off the field.
College Junior 2013-11-22T14:25:34Z
Our campus police are very nice and tend to be seen a lot. They are in cars and on bikes all over campus. Being an off campus student, I have boy dealt with them for parking violations, but they are always friendly and helpful!

Guys & Girls:
Because most of the students at this college are from the area, they know each other prior to college, which means that most of the girls can be cliquey. The guys don't tend to be, and i have made friends with the girls, though it is harder than at other universities.

I'm under a full tuition-and-book scholarship from the military, but there are still some fees that you must be aware of that most scholarships will NOT pay. mine amount to $620 per semester, but additional aid can cover that.

I live in my own apartment off-campus, and my rent is $550 a month, including furniture and utilities. the only down-side is that its in a complex with eight other apartments, meaning that it's TINY. I can step inside my apartment and see my bedroom... literally. That isn't the way with all apartments, but when you don't have a car like I don't, you take what you can get that's close to campus.

The athletic center is one of the best i have ever seen. Classes like P90X, Zumba, Yoga, and Pilates are all offered free of charge, and the equipment they have is kept clean and in working order. The student center is being rebuilt as of now, and so I cannot really review it, but it promises to be nice, with a Starbucks and a Froyo. The library has three floors, a series of twenty rentable sound-proof study rooms, vending and snack machines, a computer lab free for anyone to use, wifi that is also free to use, and a phenomenal reference section for any school work. The campus has two LIVE lions as mascots, Leo and Una, and the campus is kept clean and lively with plenty of plants and animals. Squirrels can be seen almost anywhere on campus at any minute. there is some event or other on campus every week, and every weekend a movie is shown, free of charge. there is also often music played from the amphitheater and events hosted by bands from across alabama.

The two live lions on campus are something that not everyone can say of their college. On an average day, the male can be heard roaring from all the way across campus. There is also a huge variety of foreign students, which all host an appreciation day one week in November, involving food, music, movies, and clothing from their culture.

When applying for admission into the Nursing program, you have to pass an entrance exam called the HESI exam. It's reportedly not any worse than any other standardized test and they question only basic things that your classes already covered. Your advisor will kindly help you through the whole process and let you know how to apply and how you will be considered.

Laid back and calm, yet firey and exciting when night comes about! Always something to do, like live music in the park or karaoke at Flobama.

This school is just strict enough to keep everyone safe, but not so strict that students feel oppressed or over-protected.

Though this particular region of Alabama is often plagued by rains, it is usually light and over fairly fast. We get rain three-four times per month, but only during the summer months does the weather ever get worse than that.

There are a dozen transport buses that will take you from the dorms, the on-campus apartments, the public library, to your classes, and then back again, completely free of charge with your school ID.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T03:07:26Z
The overall rating of my school would be a 100 on a scale of one to ten. Absolute best choice i could have made, from the athletics to the academics to the social life.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T03:06:14Z
I'm a nursing major. I love each of my classes-- from the basinc to to major-centric classes. my last two years will be all nursing classes and clinicals, but my first two have a range of variety which i am able to decide upon. all of my professors are accommodating of my non-school life and even my nursing life.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T03:06:14Z
This school has the perfect balance of small, student-focused classes and large, anonymous lectures. Two of my current classes are held in large lecture halls that resemble theaters, and three of my classes are held in ordinary classrooms, ranging from twenty to fifty students. When you are registering for class you are given the option to decide which of these you like best. As far as night classes go, there is an on-campus escort program that will drive you from your building to class then back to your building, or even to your car. There is also a police force that maintains all of the campus fairly safely.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T03:01:53Z
I don't have a car, so the parking info is all stuff i have gleaned from other students and friends. Therefore any opinion of mine would be unhelpful.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T03:00:48Z
I am not a huge part of the athletic life, so any input i have to this topic wouldn't be at all helpful.

Although expensive, Florence Alabama has great local restaurants and a few great bars, barely two blocks from campus. A few of the cheaper places to check out are Trowbridges (old-fashioned ice cream shop/ old-fashioned lunch-type diner) and the Subway.

Personally, I like the weather. I'm from the North, so I am used to going to school in 3 feet of snow if it hits. Here, if you get 3 inches, class is canceled and the town shuts down for a snow day. Furthermore, the hurricane weather is new to me, so I'm always anxious to see a tornado touch an open field (call me crazy). also winters are never below 0 degrees F (typically).
College Junior 2013-11-14T05:38:19Z
It's a nightmare, I'll be honest. You're only safe if you're an 8am class, or a 2pm class or later. That's when more spots are available. Also, with all the construction or new buildings going up, UNA keeps gaining, then loosing even more spots. Furthermore, we keep accepting more students, and this means more cars. Not so many people stay living in the dorm life, so a lot of people have cars and live off campus. Imagine the number of cars. You do the math.
College Junior 2013-11-14T05:36:01Z
I would by no means say that a lot of people do drugs. People definitely drink alcohol, that's college for you. I've met nursing students who say that they wouldn't have made it through nursing school without a few glasses of wine a week. Then I've heard people need other drugs (hint) to make it through a year. People have their own vices and ways of social interaction drugs. Peer pressure is not an issue. Do as you like (within reason). You're accepted as is.

My last college in New England (MA) was no where near as diverse as this school was. I have never seen this many foreign exchange students in such a smaller University, and especially in the south. On top of that a fair array of different races, colors, and orientations.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
