Montevallo AKA Monte"hellno'' please don't do it, i'mQuite BrightOther
Montevallo AKA Monte"hellno'' please don't do it, i'm begging you, DON'T DO IT. Okay I take that back: if you were home schooled, never had a life really, liked the high school thing, and like seeing the same exact people every single day, having the SAME EXACT routine every single day, and doing not a DANG thing during the week or on the weekend..then the University of Montevallo is probably where you belong :) I know everyone has their own opinions, of course, but I absolutely hated it here. I'm miserable. Never found that "friend group," considering i'm a very friendly, outgoing person. No one here quite gets me, i guess. But then again i guess that's on me...okay no it's not I blame Montevallo (haha!) The actually school work is not challenging whatsoever. It's just like high school, basically 13th grade. DON'T DO IT..JUST DON'T...PLEASE UNDERSTAND, COINCIDE WITH ME. College Night MIGHT have been the only good part about this school...they use it to "reel you in" but don't let them fool you! It's only a month of your whole year and it's not worth it. It is a fun time, don't get me wrong, but no. Just no. Population around 3k, no one is ever on campus. You feel so alone, you get depressed, and you eat a lot like I do...then you get fat...then there you have another problem. I'm telling you, coming from a girl who can easily make friends, wasn't ever a weirdo or anything, just please don't go here. I promise you'll thank me later. Oh, greek life here is kind of funny. Not disrespecting whatsoever but it's all kind of lame to me....never any parties..OH and there's one bar downtown. Which smells like crap.Okay, i'll stop ranting, but i'll leave you at this: You can do better, unless you just want to die here :)

Don't go to this school unless you seriouslySuper BrilliantArt & Design Department
Don't go to this school unless you seriously want to die!! Montevallo is a place where you wouldn't send your worst enemy to. Montevallo feels like purgatory. You will meet some of the most craziest looking and acting people here and they will act like somethings wrong with you because your not crazy like them. Many months I only ate pizza and a cheese burger. What kind of cafeteria is that? Alot are undercover racist and they act like their still in highschool.They are not friendly and mostly everyone was a loser growing up and now they think it is their turn to be mean. Unless you like crazy people who suck!! or you like ghost or you really want to die or your just a complete lunatic..GO TO MONTEVALLO!! I HATE THIS PLACE OMG I CAN GO ON AND ON! If you love this school u have got major issues and you should check into the nut house!

Montevallo is nothing but a suitcase school forQuite BrightUndecided
Montevallo is nothing but a suitcase school for misfits. If you are a misfit you will really like UM. There are a lot of slums and gay people. People that are even mildly normal should go somewhere else. If you have less than 50 facebook friends or your name is Leroy Jenkins you should go here, other than that, STAY AWAY! Parties are lame. Frats don't have parties, and the 1 bar in the one-horse town is awful.
