My son is considering UA - he’s a high stat kid, NMF and is looking to major in business and be in the Honor college. Also looking at Blount, Create MBA, etc.
Their NMF scholarships are outstanding. What we are most concerned about, however, is how conservative the campus, student body and professors are. We come from a blue state, have liberal viewpoints and while he’s totally open to a diverse mix on campus, I know that he would be very uncomfortable in an extremely conservative/Red campus and state. He’s considering University of Arizona as well, which while in a more conservative state is more liberal as a campus. The money at UA (alabama) would be better but the campus culture may not be a fit.
