If you are going into science go to the University of Alabama. This school has a strong chemistry and biology department, but it lacks experience that students need to succeed in the workforce. This school does not have too many internships for you to gain experience. In other schools that I have visited, they have undergraduate research with industrial companies. This undergraduate research is required for graduation and I have seen this help students. Unfortunately, this school does not have this program for some undergraduate degrees. In addition, on December 19, 2014 an individual working for financial aid was caught for embezzling 180,000 dollars from this school from 2010-2014. If I was a new student, I would not go to this school because you don't know where your money will go in this school. I would recommend if you do go to this school to carefully plan out your time here and do not major in a science at this school. Sometimes, it can take you more than four years to complete a B.S. degree in Chemistry, Biology, or Biochemistry. Your money and time are best spent in another school that does not cost 40,000 a year. If you try to get a degree in a science, transfer classes in and take as many credits as you can handle each semester. Good luck with this school.
“I know everyone is entitled to their ownQuite BrightNursing
I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I found it quite surprising that there were so many negative comments on my school. People give up on SpringHill so quickly. Maybe people don't meet the right friends right away, or it's just easy to give up and transfer to a bigger school. This school is my home because I stocked it out the first semester and found where I belong. It's the REAL world. When you get into a career or job, you don't just leave because the first couple of days were rough. This life and it will be hard at any institution that you choose to go to. All of my teachers are amazing here. They really take the time to know you and they KNOW when you aren't there. It's really important to show up to all classes. This school is about learning, not partying. I'm a nursing major and it is really challenging. You will make an A if you study. The nursing program has gone WAY up. It's one of the top in the state now. Springhill has taken a turn for the better. I love it in mobile and people need to remember this is COLLEGE, you eat crappy cafeteria meals at every college and you're gonna be broke anywhere you go. I wouldn't choose to go anywhere else.
Do not go to Spring Hill if you want a college experience. This is like high school all over again. You meet the same people everyday and do the same ting every day. A better way to describe this hell hole of a school is that its a boarding school. The only good thing about this school is that it's pretty. I have 2 good professors and the rest are absolute crap. The math dept. is pathetic. You have to do online notes and homework and the Nursing Dept. here is a joke. If you want to become a nurse skip this school. It is know to have a horrible nursing program. Night life is a joke all the bars in downtown mobile are a joke and you just waste a ton of money for cover charges. Another thing is that this school is very expensive even with a scholarship you have to pay abot 43 thousand dollars to go her with out a scholarship and i got the biggest scholarship of 25,000 and my parents are literally paying out the wazoo for me to go to this shit hole. When you are a senior you get to the in the good ole apartments. They are crap. One is condemned thanks to the negligence of the staff. If you decide to go here, you won't be seeing me because Im transferring the hell out of here to Alabama or LSU.
