Due to COVID 19, my classes were switched online and the University provided a smooth transition they had prepared for an event like this to occur. Exams and assignments were unlocked early in the day therefore I could keep a sane routine of waking up early and making most out of my assignments. The professors not only cared about our emotional well being but motivated us to keep pushing. I love UM!

My time at Montevallo so far has been amazing! The people and diversity throughout campus is wide but great. There are so many different walks of life on campus and I have learned so much from the tremendous professors on campus along with the students on campus. I would definitely recommend others to attend this university. The only down fall is there's not enough activities off campus around, you have to sometimes drive 20-40 mins to do fun things, but other than that its a great atmosphere.
Montevallo has a really good sense of home around campus. The people are nice, the coaches are great, and the professors are really helpful. I committed to Montevallo on a soccer scholarship in December, and my teammates have been nothing but supportive for me on this journey. I wait to be a true Falcon in the fall!
