"The student experience was very positive. The campus and town are beautiful, and these were some of the best years of my life. The College of Communications and Information Sciences faculty and staff were very helpful when sought out. They were true mentors and always willing to help me succeed."

"Overall, I'd say I love this program. Of course there have been a few hiccups along the way. The professors are very passionate about what they do and also helpful. They always want to help you gain research experience or work on something with them so that you learn authentically for the future. Most classes have been great, and the course work applies to the research aspect of educational psychology."

"Going to University of Alabama was a dream of mine that I was lucky enough to achieve. There is a sense of family on the beautiful campus. Nothing beats seeing a giant group of people decked out in their Bama gear cheering and screaming. I love my school."

"My journalism professors were incredibly helpful in preparing me for my career. I feel I was given an education on par with the most highly regarded journalism schools in the country. Nearly each professor had an extensive career in media and could give real advice on how to succeed."

"UA's online classes are just as good, if not better, than any classroom instruction I received from other schools. I took a few classes in brick and mortar institutions such as The University of Maryland in Europe and UA's classes were just the best. After I finished my AA from The University of Phoenix I decided I wanted my Bachelor's Degree from a State school. Alabama's class schedule is a traditional 16 week semester with one homework assignment due each week. I was able to double the classes and still work/ volunteer coach with no issues. The video lectures were great and the financial aid (Pell grant) helped me cover everything not covered by my employer. I learned a lot during my time there and would highly recommend this University to anyone interested in Human Environmental Science."
