I fall into the strongly positive side. Great experience with my major and social life. I met my wife there. Got into a solid graduate school after my time at Bama. If you don't like football, this isn't your school. If you want a small liberal arts education, go elsewhere. This place is big, getting bigger and you can get lost in the shuffle. It is Greek oriented. But you can have a good time without Greek life. You have to work a little harder to find it. Alabama is different from the Northeast. I wouldn't trade my time at Bama for anything. But be prepared to work hard to have a good scholastic and social life.

The quad is nice with many old, big trees and other aesthetically pleasing landscape. The more time i spent on the campus, the more obvious the issues became. I would first like to say that the campus is essentially "run" by greek life. Coming from out of state, this seemed like the best thing to meet new people and get involved, which it did. After being involved with this organization for two years, I began to realize just how backwards this campus is. As much as they would like to disagree, in my opinion, the greek system here just creates a greater divide between the student population, to the point of putting down those who aren't involved. This leads to a great deal of conformity and and puts down individuality. They say that they strive to make you and the community better through philanthropy and other means. While it is true some have made an impact, mine included, this is not normally the case. As for academics, I understand my major isn't the most difficult, but I also changed it several times. I would like to see the college offer a wider range of majors and minors. Recently they have began to address this and created the "new college". This gives students the opportunity to create their own major. As this progresses this could help to alleviate some of those previous issues. From my experience with advisors, some were very accessible and willing to help, while others seemed almost annoyed and unwilling to advise, as well as even give false information. As for campus safety, the immediate campus itself is fairly safe. There are many phones positioned throughout campus with a direct line to the local police department should any issue arise. However when leaving campus, this becomes a more unsafe environment. The school sends out an email to all students alerting them when issues such as robberies occur. Sad to say the past year or so these notifications have become much more frequent.

He was the only professor teaching certain major-required courses. He was unapproachable for help, a hard grader, gave really hard exams suitable more for graduate student-level work and was the reason I ended up with a lower than expected GPA. The Borie courses were combined grad/undergraduate courses, but the course work was not leveled. Everyone took the same tests and the curve was based on graduate and undergraduate performance. I felt the expectations for success were unrealistic. I was constantly struggling in Borie's class due to the lack of help or additional explanation when I asked for it. The department should look for a replacement for him.

The people here will hate you unless you are actively part of a fraternity or sorority. When signing up for classes they don't tell you that most classes are online. NOT worth the $40k+ that out of state students pay. Ive wanted to come here since I left the womb, Ive been here for one semester and I cant get out fast enough. The University covers up things like shooting threats and daily robberies. Do not make the mistake of coming here.


P.S. the wifi is out every 10 minutes.
