Reasons to attend and to not attend University of Alabama

To Attend

  • “Football. Gameday is unbelievable down there. It’s a totally new world. ​

  • “They are heavily increasing the out of state population, so you get to meet people from all over.” [About 57% of students are from out of state.]

  • “If you’re looking for a place with a strong alumni network and school pride that lasts their whole lives.”

  • “We have really good amenities for being a student. Our football tickets are cheap, we get to use an aquatic center, there are buses that take us from class to class, and the dining halls because you can get unlimited meal swipes. The dorms are also really nice.”

To Not Attend

  • “The state of Alabama is very [messed] up. Its history shows.”

  • “If you want a big city, Tuscaloosa’s not that. You won’t get the city experience.”

  • “It’s kind of a party school, so a lot of people end up dropping out because they can’t handle it. You’re going to be in trouble if you’re not good at self-control.”

  • “If you’re really not confident in who you are. Going to Alabama, there are lots of good looking people who present themselves to look the best, and I know that messes with people’s emotions.”

  • “If you don’t want a southern school, I wouldn’t go to Alabama because there is a strong southern presence. It isn’t overwhelming, but it’s there.”
