University of South Alabama Reviews
Review University of South Alabama
I am highly involved with the football program as a member of the Jaguar Marching Band and I love supporting our players. Game days are the most exciting events I've witnessed so far in college. The students always make a large showing and are incredibly enthusiastic about supporting our team. Our team, while not the best, is improving every year- especially for such a young program! Our marching band, even though I'm a bit biased, is one of the best in the region
My experience as a USA Alumna and Graduate Student has been amazing. My experience as a college student has helped me to develop individually by deciding what field of study I want to pursue. While pursuing my B. A. in Communication with a minor in English, my academic performance soared because I was pursuing my passion in the field of Communication and English, and I enjoyed my courses. I discovered my passion for writing when I decided to have an English minor. My professors were very helpful and worked with me one-on-one to make sure that they did all they can to help me succeed. Now I am currently pursuing my M.F.A. with a primary concentration in Graphic Design and a secondary concentration in Printmaking. Living on campus has been a great experience for me because it helped me to develop my own sense of independence and freedom. Also, while living on campus I have free internet access, and it is convenient for me to go to school/work and attend campus activities.
Overall my experience at South was not bad. I attended the Mitchell College of Business, majoring in marketing, and enjoyed many of the classes offered. The university is very involved with their students and sends out a daily digest email each night for students to see what the upcoming events are. A big plus about this university is how they embrace diversity and international students, and how these students accept others as well. The big issue I had while attending was the food choices. There are only four fast food restaurants in the student center and the POD stations found around campus are very over priced for a small selection of snacks.
