My overall experience at The University of West Alabama was fantastic. I made a lot of friends, and the people and professors were all very nice and helpful. The town is smaller then what I am used to but it was still beautiful. All of the buildings and classrooms were nice and they are still upgrading! The class size is no more then 30 students which fit me perfectly. I enjoy the smaller class room size because I can learn better and the professor knows who you are instead of being in a 200 student lecture hall.
Review University of West Alabama
The University of West Alabama has to be the best college around. Everyone is so friendly, nice and helpful. I've never seen so many happy spirits around UWA. I'm sure if you attended you'd love it. It's really worth attending. The professors are amazing and so is the food! I'd recommend The University of West Alabama to any senior in high school. It's worth your wild.
I visited West Alabama for a future student preview day, and I was very impressed with the school as a whole. I am looking to walk on with the football team, so I was really interested in the campus and what it had to offer. After my visit I knew that West Alabama was where I wanted to start planning and building my future. It is a nice friendly campus that seems really safe and secure. I am looking forward to getting on campus at start getting involved with my athletic and academic goals.
