Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
The University of North Alabama is a well-known university for producing educators. In its early years, it was known as Florence State Teachers College. That reputation has not regressed at all. The level of education at the university is comparable to any major state school. The community atmosphere fosters a sense of intimacy and the faculty's accessibility makes the learning process effective and meaningful. The amount of schools in the area make observing and working with educators in the field easy and impactful. The experience that I had at UNA prepared me for my career and gave me an unforgettable college experience.
The University of North Alabama is a great school and has a wonderful social work program. The beautiful campus and surrounding town's home-like environment make studying more enjoyable. The University of North Alabama's student services are very helpful and reduce the stress of the work load. The social work program encourages and challenges students to give their best efforts. There are some of the professors in program that seem to not have the students' best interest in mind, but overall the staff and program are generally helpful.
The University of North Alabama is a hidden treasure of North Alabama. Not only is the campus beautiful, but the whole city of Florence loves college kids and makes it a really homey college to attend. The school is currently growing and changing, and I was honored to be apart of this growth and development. UNA loves their students and does everything they can to make college a very fun and educational experience that prepares you for your future journey!
The University of North Alabama is known for Education and Nursing; however, the Social Work program that the school offers is phenomenal. The teachers assist, teach, and personalize the classroom as the students learn and participate in class as well as hands-on experiences throughout each semester. It is definitely a lot of hard work, but the professors are there to support and build the foundation for our future careers. The professors have no issue with meeting with the students in order to get a better understanding on the material. The classes are extremely educational and role plays were done in order to experience how situations could either be good or bad; there was not a class that was not enjoyed. It taught the students insight on how different people work and how important it is to build positive relationships with the people. The best part was the hands-on experience; interacting with diverse individuals and getting to do several different volunteer work was eye-opening for the plethora of possibilities and career choices that social work has to offer.
The University of North Alabama truly offers the full college experience while preparing their students for a successful career in today's competitive work force. This university inspires you to dream for your biggest goals and provides you with the tools to get there. Caring professors, academically rigorous curriculum, amazing tutoring resources, generous scholarships that make college affordable for anyone, opportunities for student employment, a fun and vibrant city and campus life... there is nothing more you could want for your college career. My highest recommendation goes to my alma mater.
