This has only been first semester at Bama, but it has been an amazing experience so far. I am from out of state and everyone has been so supportive and friendly. The teachers are great. The campus is beautiful. I can't say enough wonderful things about this university. Roll Tide!
I really love it here. The campus is wonderful and all of the people are so nice. There are so many things to do all the time! The dorms are FANTASTIC and so convenient. I love all of my teachers. I wish the rec center was closer to campus but that's a small thing. Also, Greek life is a little bit overwhelming, but there are plenty of non Greeks around.
