Very happy I chose this school! Everyone knows of their legendary football team, but the academics are stellar as well. UA has an awesome international program, and I've had the opportunity to meet many international students and learn about their cultures. The campus is gorgeous and the dorms are just about as good as they can get! However, since it's such a large school, there are many lecture classes with well over 100 people, which makes it harder to connect with the professors of those classes. The dining hall food is above average, but the menu is not very diverse and I got tired of it within the first few months. Besides these things, I love UA and can't wait to spend several more semesters here!

University of Alabama is such a fantastic environment to earn a 4-year degree; I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend school here. Football is clearly a large part of the UA community, but academics rise above expectations as well. I've had professors that I have learned from tremendously, and I hope to continue my graduate schooling here as well. It's impossible not to mention how beautiful the campus is as well. Roll Tide!
