University of South Alabama Reviews
I love South Alabama! The classes are smaller than the average and the instructors are awesome! The advisors are very supportive and ensure that you stay on track. The campus is beautiful and is very well maintained by the landscaping department. The athletic department is awesome and the teams are very supportive of each other. South Alabama has a small town atmosphere but is close to all the perks of a larger city. The beaches are close enough for a day trip, the Mobile downtown area is great with a diverse group of people and places to go. South Alabama is a very expensive school, especially for an out of state student as the out of state tuition is double the rate for Alabama residents. Overall, I am happy that I chose South Alabama. I will be applying to the medical school there this summer.
South Alabama is a fantastic school that has superfluous amounts of academic opportunities to be explored with an ever-involved staff that genuinely care about their students' success. The campus is kept very pristine and although undergoing construction, still holds a comfortable feeling of home; the only modification I would make would be the addition of more lamp lights along pathways and throughout the school grounds. Mobile itself is a beautiful city to call home for your college years and a move to such a place would not be regretted!
University of South Alabama is my true love.I am a girl from Wisconsin who hates the winter but has a love for science, culture, the city.When I found University of South Alabama, it was like finding a hundred dollar bill in a pile of one dollar bills.The other colleges I looked at, never had the qualities that South Alabama offers like a rich culture, warm atmosphere.However in reality, what sold me is the fact that they have a program for physician assistants. Physician assistant is a rare career path, therefore many colleges do not offer that program. So because University of South Alabama offers my program; I knew this was the place for me.The campus was green, alive, safe, and clean. All the people on and outside of campus were so wonderful and generous.It was right when I walked off campus that I knew I had to be back there, because it had already felt like home. This is how I knew University of South Alabama was going to be my happily ever after.
