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.
I'm glad I decided to go to UAH. I was worried about starting college, because high school counselors made it seem like I was going to flunk out by just setting foot on campus, but UAH proved them wrong. They give the students here so many opportunities, and have events going on every week as a break. The housing on campus is great as well. We have suite style dorms where there are four rooms, and four roommates. If you're thinking about UAH definitely go on a tour, you can see the campus and view a dorm room. Class size depended on the subject, but my largest class this semester was probably about forty people. The professors are very friendly, and there will always be people in your class that are willing to help work on problems with you. Study wise, there are tutors for almost every subject if you need them.
