"Alabama is one of the best, most well rounded schools in the south in my opinion. You have everything: sports, religion, academics, community, night life, a beautiful campus and more."

"It's a very great school, but the students seem to be more focused about what they are doing after class than their actual schoolwork. I understand that the social aspect is very important in college, but is it more important than receiving the degree?"

"The University of Alabama is well-known for its football program, but its academic programs rival its athletics. I first began attending the school in 2001, and returned in 2013 to complete my undergraduate degree. Upon arriving on campus so many years after having been there before, and after having lived life and worked in the professional world, I was very appreciative of the quality of education I was receiving at UA. All of my professors were well-qualified, accessible, upfront, fair, and seemed to work as hard as they expected me to work. I earned my degree - I didn't buy it. It wasn't ridiculously hard work - but it was work, and it was fair. I didn't make the most of my experience the first time, but the second time, I took nothing for granted. The facilities are beautiful, the experience is incomparable to most, and the educational experience is superb. I am very thankful that I was afforded the opportunity to receive the quality of education I received at UA, and if you are considering attending this school, you will not regret this choice. If you are already attending, I offer this to you: every day you step foot on campus, you have a choice to make. You can make excuses or you can make the most out of your experience. I hope you choose to make the most, because there is much out there. Side note: Little Italy in the shopping center with Coldstone Creamery and Moe's will change your life. Do eat there; multiple times, if needed."

"The University of Alabama is a prestigious location to attend college. I believe it's known more for the business college (and N.S.) but it also has a great engineering program."

"UA is a great school for all students from all kinds of backgrounds with any number of interests or hobbies. The social life is open and exciting, the academics are some of the best in the nation, and the club organizations are vast and easy to join. The campus is beautiful, a great size, and provides many different opportunities to expand your mind socially and academically."

"The University of Alabama was a wonderful school for me. The class sizes were always small enough where I felt the teacher knew me and I was comfortable talking to them. The atmosphere on campus during a football game day is indescribable, though basketball games and gymnastics are also electric. UA will always be a home for me that is full of wonderful memories."

"I liked it. It's a rising star in the law school world, so even though I am a small town local girl, I had classmates from all over the country. It was extremely competitive, but I feel that I got a good education, if not realistic expectations about the job market."
