Degree: Political Science and Government, General
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall, my experience at Alabama was amazing. My degree was in the arts and sciences department and every class was fulfilling. I enjoyed the different schedule options, one on one support from professors and there were so many jobs on campus to help me pay for school. The only drawback I will report is dont have a balance on your student account cause they will let you participate in the graduation ceremony but you will never receive your diploma or transcripts if you owe them money. I graduated in 2014 with two degrees and I have never seen my diplomas because I owe them 4600$ Im trying to pay it off but its hard to accumulate that much when Bama is also charging interest on your school debt.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

While the University of Alabama is an excellent institution with many valuable resources for current students, sometimes it is easy to get lost in the sea of 40,000 students. I found it quite difficult to receive advising for scheduling, internships, and career resources. I became involved in research based on my own initiation and was not recommended by any advisors, even though getting involved in research was vital for my success in psychology during undergrad and beyond.

Degree: Education/Teaching of Individuals in Early Childhood Special Education Programs
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Alabama is a great school. I thoroughly enjoyed all that the Capstone had to offer. The School of Education is great as well, I felt like the classes to prepare me for my degree were helpful. However, during my time in my degree's specialized courses, the program was working on hiring new faculty and we had multiple adjunct professors. I do not feel that the courses were as beneficial as the practicums and internship experiences, however those were very beneficial to the teacher I am today.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

Excellent school, staff, and students. Teachers go above and beyond. They make you want to come to class and learn. They also believe in an "open door" policy, which makes it easy to access them for questions, concerns, and help. Also, the school is big on traditions and has an incredible alumni, which proves that it is an amazing school.

Degree: Human Development, Family Studies, and Related Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

The University is a great institution for furthering your education. The resources the University has exceeds many other Univeristies. The school is more than willing to accommodate to any educational services wanted. However, the cultural diversity is very low and limited. There are injustices that happen quiet often and get swept under the rug. The Greek system is very discriminatory, degrading, dangerous, and racist.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

It is best to come to UA as a freshman. That is the only year they offer merit scholarships and will allow you into the honors program. UA is improving the quality of its students every year, increasing its reputation as a respected regional power. Though I was a transfer and did not receive aid, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at UA. As a psych major I was able to get involved in research labs with well known psychologists. That combined with some excellent professors and classes really prepared me for grad school. As a big school, there are a million resources for students to take advantage of. I used the career center to edit my resume, and conduct Skype interviews with grad schools. Though I'm a northern girl and not the biggest fan of AL as a state, I still have to say UA is an excellent place to earn your education. It should not be underestimated.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2017

I loved attending the University of Alabama. I felt that once I finished my basics and go to the classes with relevant information towards my major, I fell in love. My teachers explained things in a very passionate way and took a huge interest in my success.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Alabama has an excellent scholarship program for high-achieving students. This was crucial for me in my future career, because I am now pursuing a Master's Degree, for which I will need to take out a lot of loans. Not having to take out loans for my undergraduate degree was extremely useful. Also, the organizations and people I met on campus have greatly helped me grow and develop as a person. I would highly recommend UA to any high school students looking for a productive, challenging education alongside exciting extracurricular activities.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Alabama is a great place to learn in order to be successful in the professional world. The availability of professors and the involvement of the career center are what I loved the most about UA. The professors are readily available whether by phone, email, or office hours. Gaining that relationship with different professors helps exponentially in the long run. The career center is great because they sit down with you for every step of the job search process. They go above and beyond to make sure you are ready to succeed post-graduation. The campus life is amazing and you can not forget about the amazing football team. The connections and networking opportunities really helped me to grow both personally and professionally. Overall I would suggest the University of Alabama to anyone who is thinking about attending.
