The University of Alabama in Huntsville provides a lot of great opportunities for all students regardless of race or ethnicity. They offer trips and movie nights which is all free for admitted students.

Every year they have "week of welcome" which consists of a lot of events. This year we had casino night,rock the rec, capture the flag and a glow in the dark paint party. Casino night was where we played black jack and poker. They also had a "bar" which consisted of virgin drinks. Rock the rec consisted of key logging, silent disco, glow in the dark dodgeball and rock climbing. We played capture the flag until 2am and last but not least, we had a huge rave paint party with an awesome DJ until close to midnight.

Class wise, the classes aren't huge unlike UA or Auburn which is great for one on one time. My biggest class has 100 people in it and my smallest had around 20. It varies but still great class sizes.

The university of Alabama in Huntsville also offers FREE TUTORS!

The University of Alabama in Huntsville is a great school! It has tons of opportunities for student involvement and free tutoring! It is a very academically challenging school with great professors, I strongly recommend this school! I am personally glad I chose to attend this university.
My experience here has been amazing. I've had so many opportunities; they've been offering me research positions since freshman year! And student life is amazing - so many clubs, and the residence halls are all private bedrooms.
