Date: Sep 23 2003 Major: Education (This Major's Salary over time) I would not trade my experiences at Alabama for anything. Although this is a review of my grad school years, I could say the very same about my undergraduate time as well.Graduate study was, for me, much closer to my view of what the elusive "ideal" college experience should be. Class sizes were consistently small… spirited discussions between students from widely varied backgrounds, with disparate viewpoints were common, but never permitted to cross the fine line that separates academic disagreement from "just plain argument." Professors were well prepared, knowledgeable, and available. Course work was challenging, but did not become a "grind." I even had one professor who mustered the class once a week or so at a local pub where we staked out a table and discussed the assigned readings over frosty pitchers and baskets of wings.Alabama, like many state universities, is what you make of it. It is large enough for you to be anonymous and toil away at your studies and never feel that you fit in… but this school has so much to offer to those who are willing to reach out and take it… You can get a top-flight education here and stockpile memories which will last a lifetime…… go for it.
