Reviews for University of Alabama, Huntsville
I enrolled at UAH with a negative mindset. I did not want to attend a college in hometown, Huntsville. I was not looking forward to it nor did I think I was going to enjoy it or make mutual friends with the same interests as me. I was highly proven wrong. I began my journey at UAH with freshman orientation, I was welcomed by sweet, humble people who loved the school. They turned my negativity into a slightly more positive attitude. I was still not convinced until I partook in their WoW which stands for week of welcome. This highly energetic week of free food, games, meet and greets, just made me put myself out there and meet people I thought I would never connect with. For me, the most memorable experiences include going to the sporting events. I love sports taken in account that I am an athlete myself, I think I bond well with people and get to know people a lot at the different sporting events. UAH is a family atmosphere for me with a very home-like feel.
University of Alabama in Huntsville is definitely not the school you want to go to if you want to take the easy route. Classes are challenging and professors push to strive for your best. The workload may feel overwhelming at times, but majority of my teachers have always been very involved with me if I go one-on-one to them and ask for advice, tips, and help. Class size is perfect, for example; small classes such as Speech 113 (a beginning speech class) has about 20 students in it and gave the class some time to connect with each other compared to a biology or chemistry class where you have 50+ students to listen to a lecture every class period. Each class setting is relevant and positive for that specific subject.
UAH has great places on campus to catch up with friends or hang out to eat. There are many clubs on campus, one for every personality! You can't say there isn't a club or organization there for you. They all advertise events they are putting on and everyone is really involved. Athletics are a huge deal at UAH as well and are free to all students. This makes many students get out and go support their teams because it's something free to do as well as meet new people and catch up with old ones.
UAHuntsville is a great school. They have a wide array of subjects to study, many degree programs to offer, and all the necessary relationships, connections, and resources to help their students with job placement upon graduation. They also have several different departments, whose specialization is helping you to understand the career path you've chosen, help with important life changing decisions such as: what you want to do with the rest of your life, and helping those whose major is still undecided.
As with most schools, the freshman year classes are the most difficult to get through. It's not necessarily that they're so much harder, just that the professors are harder on you about getting things done, doing it exactly the way they want, and mostly just challenging you to go past the limits of what you've already learned. Classes are larger, professors much stricter about attendance, and generally there is a lot of homework. Once you get past 100 level classes everything is so much more relaxed with both professor and student. smaller classes give a much more personal learning experience.
There are many different clubs, ranging from music to math, to religious clubs. There's a campus-wide Frisbee Golf course, frequented by everyone, students and teachers alike, There are multple musical productions throughout the year, and that's not even considering the Greek life.
