So far, my experience at South Alabama has been a great one. There are so many things to do and so many good people and I honestly love being there. The academic side of campus is just as good as the recreational side. The school is very diverse and I recommend any senior trying to find a college to come check us out. Go Jags!

The campus is beautiful! It is very clean, the people are very pleasant, and the professors are very intelligent. The on campus apartments are very nice. They have pools, computer labs, workout areas, and so much more. I would recommend anyone to go look around, and give it a try.
The faculty and staff are pretty straight forward about the guidelines and expectations. I feel I had generally diverse experience as far as general classes were concerned. As you progress through your program, classes may/may not become smaller or more concentrated. In my case they did. I had a good educational experience, but towards the end of my degree, I did not have enough funding for my final class. If I didn't have my own funding or get it from a family member or credit card, I would have had to wait until the following spring to take my final course. Everything worked out in the end and I took the class and finished my degree. Good experience
