The University of Alabama Reviews
I like the University of Alabama because it gives students a feel of diversity and security on campus. As a freshman, being comfortable with the professors and the classes are great! The student life here is amazing and there are plenty of opportunities for students to get involved in on campus. The social aspect is pretty fun too, being able to balance school and parties is something that can happen at UA and it's one of the reasons why I love this school.
My experience at The University has been amazing! The Proffesor's and staff are beyond exceptional , and are always available to help. I've only had issues with my advisor not getting back to me right away a few times, but when I do speak with her she treats me like I'm her only student. The campus is beautiful, safe and if you love sports this is the place for you...This school is filled with southern charm! The only change I would want to see for the University is for them to add more online majors in the near future. Roll Tide
At the University of Alabama, the buildings and landscaping are second to none. The gracious Denny chimes send spectacular harmonies throughout the beautiful campus. With students wandering about at every moment, plenty of things to do, and an impeccable football team, this campus has it all. I am especially excited to attend this fall of 2019!
