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.

My overall experience at Montevallo was great. Met great people from all over the state and even the world. I was a student-athlete at the University and enjoyed the diverse group of students among the athletes. Outside of the athlete population you had talented theater students, very involved greek students, and your occasional Alabama student. More diversity, better food options, and more activities would benefit this campus.
From the moment I stepped on the campus bricks, I knew Montevallo would be home. The University provides excellent teaching and an amazing community without making students feel like they are lost in a crowd. Thanks to the small size of the student body, everyone can pretty much know everyone on campus. The homecoming events and history of the school provide students with an enriching experience during their time at the University of Montevallo.
