There really is something about this place.BrightNatural Resources
There really is something about this place. Most of the people are fairly nice and easy to get along with. The teachers are extremely approachable and are there to help you if they can. However, like many colleges, the financial offices can give you some serious grief. They like to play the blame game and send you running around to different offices if they don't happen to know the answer or don't want to deal with you, but again, you will find such annoyances everywhere. I live in the state of Alabama and was a little hesitant to leave home considering there was a university a lot closer to where I lived, but the small town feeling of Livingston really is comforting. You don't feel pressured into greek life and everyone is really easy going. I've met some really wonderful people, and quite a few not so nice folks, at this school, friends that will be there for me no matter what. That's what kind of school that every school should be. It's not just about what you learned in class, it's about what you learned in life, and the University of West Alabama can help you learn a lot about life and about yourself.

I am originally fromNot so brightEducation
I am originally from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. I thought that I would be out of place coming to school here. I was wrong. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The class size are small re so you are not a number. I would recomend this school to anyone.

I am from a town in central FloridaBrightEducation
I am from a town in central Florida about ten hours away from UWA. I came to UWA as a football recruit and knew little about the university. After quitting football early into my first year, I had planned on transferring back to a school in Florida to receive in state tuition. Then, I fell in love with this place and knew this was the place for me. Everyone here made me feel right at home and I could tell they took a vested interest in me getting a quality education. All the great things that I have to say about UWA can't be limited to this "brief" summary, so if you want to know more just ask. I will gladly respond to any emails you have about the university.
