    If you or your parents are worried about the cost of college then you do not by any means need to worry about value here at UA. I mean you get to go to see the best college football team in the nation and possibly the world for only $10 a game. Also the University consistently and efficiently renovates their student facilities. Also there are these awesome parties that University Programs hosts where there is an abundance of free candy, pizza, games, and entertainment depending on the event. Always make sure to see what is up with the health hut as they always are giving out some good information on how to stay healthy, as well as giving out free clip on germ x bottles, condoms, and chapsticks. Find another university that gives out as many free shirts as ours I bet you won’t even come close to the amount you will get just from Get on Board Day alone. All in all the University wants to see you succeed and puts your money to good use as well as giving you a small portion of it back through freebies, parties, and other student services. Some of these student services include the business corner in the Ferguson center where if you need a suit for an interview but you don’t own one they will loan one out to you that is the proper size. Another free student resource is tutoring which is a free resource for classes like Math and also more specialized courses like AC 210. When I walk around on campus every week I feel fortunate to have gotten into a school that cares extensively for their staff and their students as well as the integrity of their classes.

    Honestly, it's pretty pricey, especially if you don't have a scholarship coming in. That being said, you couldn't ask for more out of a school. Bama literally has all of the best aspects of any school and it's totally worth paying for.
