"The University of Montevallo is a gem in higher education in the state of Alabama. It is Alabama's only public liberal arts school, and a liberal arts education has been invaluable to me in my career since graduating. A liberal arts education aims to give students a more well rounded education by having students take at least one course in every discipline. I can honestly state that I have used things that I learned in my general education courses with almost as much frequency as I used information from my major courses. Every discipline on campus has highly qualified professors, and I never took a class taught by a graduate assistant. Even the few adjunct professors I had were experts in their fields. The class sizes were so small it was hard to believe. Most of my friends at other large universities had English or math classes with over one hundred people in them. My English classes only had twenty-five people in them. The largest class I ever had was my Music Theory I class that had forty students in it. In addition, the music department from which I received my degree has been accredited since the 1930s. I had classes with almost every professor in the music department, and they are all wonderful educators. I really felt like they all wanted nothing more than to see all the students succeed. The University of Montevallo was then and always will be home to me."

"The University of Montevallo was a wonderful place for me. I had the opportunity to learn from some of the top professors in their fields. UM is small and the faculty likes to get to know their students. They will help you in any way that they can. You will also have the opportunity to meet and network with people from everywhere. There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus as well."

"College was the best time of my life. Looking back, I really wish I had taken more time to sit back and enjoy the experience, rather than just speeding through classes (and even skipping a lot of classes). I met some of my best friends in college and learned what I needed to be prepared for my future."

"I deeply enjoyed attending the University of Montevallo. The campus is small and tightly-knit, and we value diversity and traditions very much. The class sizes are very small, so students feel more engaged in classes. The dorm life is really nice. Not too loud or dirty. I lived there all four years. Overall, I would recommend attending this school. The biggest downside was the lack of networking or job placement, but that could be said for other universities as well, not just Montevallo."

"The Education program was rigorous. This was quite useful in the real world of education. The professors were professional, the program was very comprehensive and the school itself is beautiful it's quiet and its college without too much of the distractions."

"I love how dedicated the professors are. You can really tell that they love helping people with speech and language disorders through the way they instruct in the classroom."

"The MBA program at Montevallo is exceptional, to say the least. The faculty is committed to each student's success and have worked hard to create an environment where students feel safe and encouraged. Every single professor makes an effort to focus on each individual student. In many cases, the professors have actively assisted in their student's job search. I know in my heart that if I ever needed anything, each of my professors would do everything in their power to help me. Even the administration department attempts to create a sense of comfort and care within the program. I have never felt left out or invisible or like I could not reach out to any one in the program. There have been several classes, however, where the majority of the student body was dissatisfied with the workload and found it difficult to balance their schoolwork with their jobs and family life. Regardless, Montevallo's MBA program is, in my opinion, an amazing place to earn a master's degree. I will miss it when I graduate, but I know 100% that I will be prepared for the business world and for life in general because of Montevallo."
