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!
Review University of Alabama - Huntsville
It is a good school if you want to be a nurse or a mechanical/aerospace engineer, but nothing else! As a former student in a smaller engineering, my course load forced me to take courses in all of the other engineerings. This probably would have been okay, if my mindset and my major weren't practically based rather than theory based.
My experience at the University of Alabama-Huntsville has been good, but not great. The good is that it is a small university so every building is an easy walking distance and class sizes are small. Another good thing is that most of the professors reach out to their students and will help when someone asks for it. The one thing I wished would change is that there are not a whole lot of scholarships in my department and mostly only for engineering students. Also, the athletic department does not seem to care too much about our cross country/track team. Last, I would like for the university to try giving more opportunities for commuter students.
