First off, this school is a money maker school for the University of Alabama, nothing more. There is very little school spirit as it is a commuter school with a very low percentage of the students actually living close to campus. I had a management minor which consisted of nothing but group work and goal setting which means that if you want a good grade, expect to do all the work yourself. There is also "weed out" classes which are way harder than necessary and try to defer students from pursuing certain careers. The teachers are very inconsistent (meaning the same class can be a piece of cake or hell depending on which teacher you have). Parking is a hassle because you cannot walk or bike to most parts of campus as it is so spread out and there is too much traffic with it being in the middle of a city. This school either needs to invest in its students more, or just shut down and give all the money back to the crimson tide like it's being used for anyways.
