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!
Review University of Alabama - Huntsville
The University of Alabama-Huntsville is a surprisingly nice university. I am not from the south but I absolutely love attending UAH. It has the southern atmosphere which is very welcoming. Everyone is so nice on campus and there are always fun activities and events to go to. I like that it is a very academic driven school and it is not too large in population. Overall I love the campus and I plan on staying here for my entire college career! Go Chargers!
University of Alabama in Huntsville is a fantastic school. The university is catered heavily to STEM fields, so if you're interested in studying engineering, computer science, or the biomedical fields then you will not be disappointed. UAH also has an outstanding nursing program. As a liberal arts and business student, however, I wish the university would put more money towards those two departments. There are not as many internship opportunities for students outside of the STEM field in the Huntsville area.
