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!

This school sets you up for success, all you have to do is utilize the school's resources that they provide for you. The only thing I would change is the student culture is not very interested in the athletics compared to other schools. I would hope the athletic program will soon gain interest by the student body!
The University of Alabama in Huntsville can be a great choice to further your education. The University capitalizes on the strong engineering presence in the area offering many co ops and work study opportunities to the engineering students. There are three hospitals within the city including a level one trauma center, a privately owned hospital, and a small non profit hospital that allow the nursing students to experience all of those work environments.
