Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • I am a current student here

    I knew a few of the students here when I first arrived, but nowhere as many as I would have known if I had attended a school closer to my hometown, like UAB or Bama. Good thing the people here are friendly. I love my dorm (save for the 5 a.m. fire alarms) and the people that I've met in it. The only complaint I have about the campus is their Wi-Fi system. It's frustrating that only one person can be on the internet in a suite room at a given time, which makes group studying fairly difficult. I also don't have too much cash to throw around to pay the $40 a month for wireless.

    GO CHARGERS! UAH has been a great college experience for me. There are many events you can attend such as W.O.W. (Week Of Welcome), dances, concerts, sports events, and many academic clubs you can join to enhance your learning experience in whatever major you are in.

    The campus is very diverse and we all have a ton of school spirit. Most of out housing facilities have themed floors to make that transition to college easier (International Floor, Honors Floor, Academic Success Floor, Engineering Floor, Leadership and Development Floor) . Be aware that all of or housing residences are co-ed (but we do have all girll, all boy themed floors as well)I was also introduced to a lot of different activities and events my freshman year (LANparty, Charger Stomp, Frosh Mosh Everyone is considerate and I've met people from all over the U.S.

    I LOVED UAH and the Huntsville area! There is so much to do on campus! From ACE events (which is the on campus entertainment group) to SGA sponsored events and then all the housing events. I would definitely reccommend living on campus so you can get involoved!

    I'm a nerd and do not go out much, so I definitely do not know everything there is to do in Huntsville. I do know that there are at least a couple malls and movie theaters and plenty of restaurants near campus. Pretty much everywhere you would want to go is on University Drive. There are also a lot of events to attend and organizations one can join on campus. They have everything from ice hockey to pep band to a math club, except a football team. I’m rather glad they do not have a football team though. The dorms are amazing! They are all set up as four person suites with private bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a common area with tables, chairs, a couch, a microwave, and a refrigerator.
