| I gradauted in May 2010 with a degree in Biology. I moved to six hours from my hometown to attend UNA. It was a great choice. The faculty is very helpful and tried to make learning fun, even with the basics. I highly advise students to consider UNA. The only down side is that Florence is a small town so there is not much to do at night or on the weekends if you are not involved with campus extracurriculars. |

| I went to this school expecting to make new friends and be welcomed into Florence's small town atmosphere. What I got instead was a whole town full of traditionalism and close-mindedness. This southern town is the type of town that condemns change of any sort. The people of this town do not and will never accept people that are not born and raised Alabama residents with clothes matching their peers. If you are looking for a diverse college with lots of helpful staff and a town full of things to do, this college IS NOT FOR YOU.If you are somebody who is reading this and does not follow every single social rule that society had laid out for you, I am asking, NO, BEGGING you to reconsider this as your college. |

| Beware: Florence is a small town full of old, self-righteous Christians. There is nothing to do there, and you can't get a beer on Sundays. That said, if your only goal is to get your degree and not be distracted, UNA is in the perfect location for you.|
Like most schools, the Greeks here think that being Greek raises your social status and makes you a generally more valuable member of the student body. What they don't realize is that watching Greeks makes non-Greeks want to stay that way. They all dress and talk the same. They have no personality, but apparently that's what's "cool".
the Biology program is not proactive enough, in my opinion. I would like to see some profiles on the department homepage of UNA bio grads, how far they went in school, and what they're doing now. In the department, it's very "every man for himself". You might get some help if you bug the faculty long enough.Overall, I rate my experience at UNA so far to be neutral. There are positives, there are negatives. I just can't wait to get my degree and get out of here.
