University of Montevallo Reviews
The campus is beautiful! The students are very diverse so it is not hard to find someone that you would get along with. Greek life is not like anywhere else! There are not too many students so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved. Homecoming aka College Night is the longest running homecoming tradition any school has in the country. The town is small but it is not far for the city of Birmingham so there’s always something to do! The only things that I would fix are some of the dorms and the food in the cafeteria but you would probably want to fix those things at most schools!
The past year and a half of my life have been the most wonderful years because of my fellow students at the University of Montevallo. There are a few problems that do seem to persist, the main one would be campus food. There are many problems with it from food being undercooked nearly everyday to a horrible fly infestation and cafeteria workers who yell at students all the time. I would not be nearly as happy as I am if it were not for the constant support of my parents, brothers, and of course my lovely girlfriend Elizabeth Lassy.
UM has maintained a friendly, nurturing atmosphere among faculty with students. UM can brag about having the best Theatre department in the state!! The Speech pathology department has grown into a world class level of training. The English department has boasted of talented, prize winning writers and educators for more than half a century. The Music department stands superior, far above much larger universities on the state. And athletics is thriving with winning seasons in baseball, basketball, & volleyball. Montevallo is in a class by itself, retaining Southern gentility and an innate appreciation for culture, manners, and acceptance.
