Avoid this place like the plague

Sep 13 2014Telecommunications
Avoid this place like the plague. One of my biggest regrets in life. Love the campus and the communications program but the people here are some of the worst people on the planet. If your goal in life is to join a sorority of fraternity then this is the place for you but you probably won't graduate so don't bother spending mommy and daddy's money.

I am a freshman at the University of Alabama and I honestly do not like it at all. People here are very self-absorbed and rude. Most of the girls are complete brats who only care about going to parties EVERY NIGHT. If you don't dress "like them" with long T-shirts that cover your shorts, you will most likely be judged. Also if you are not wearing designer clothes/shoes/accessories, you're probably seen as "poor". If you are not from the Alabama or the South, I would highly recommend reconsidering this school. Especially if you are not planning on joining a Fraternity or Sorority.

One of my friends was rushing for a certain Sorority and when they walked in they had to take off their shoes and an active member of the sorority came around and checked to see who was wearing designer shoes and who wasn't...

They are complete brats who care only about themselves and their image. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole greek system flunks out.

The culture shock is tremendous. Everything in the "deep south" is different than any other state. I am from Chicago so the culture here is not something I like. I'll just say it is very different in every aspect, (how people dress, act, talk, carry themselves). It is just not something I like. There really is no "southern hospitality" on this campus. People down here call Chicago a "war zone" but in reality people from Chicago or anywhere in the Midwest are a heck of a lot nicer than anyone on this campus.

Lastly, there is absolutely nothing to do on this campus except party. Don't get me wrong I am a big partier but I don't want to go out every single night because it gets old really fast.. The Strip is super boring and quite scary at night. There are a lot of weirdos driving around it looking for drunk college girls coming out of the bars late at night.
