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!

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.
