We also send our visiting relatives to visit on the way to our house and so far have received nothing but positive comments. If you are traveling through the area it will... More

Visiting the campus to see the historic buildings & visit the lions is always a fun day trip. Any time during the year, but Spring is my favorite time to go there.

We visited the campus this past Saturday, April 25th. I had not been there since I was a child. My Grandfather, Dr. E.B. Norton, was President of the University years ago - he retired in 1972 and has since passed on. Norton Auditorium was named after him. I have wonderful memories of Christmas and other visits in the President's home.... More

Everyone mentions the lions so I will just say the University of North Alabama has the most beautiful campus in the South - sorry, Sewanee!

It is a beautiful campus! The campus atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. I believe this University offers a quality education at a reasonable price. The staff and professors are nice and concerned about the students. I attended UNA and now my children are also students.

I went here back in 1990's and they have changed so very much since then. As you walk around you can see the pride in this school. They put money in keeping it up. LOVE THE DRAMA GROUP.........they are so very awesome. If you have the time you really need to see the plays they put on here. These are... More

This is one of the most beautiful campuses around. There have been a lot of updates which have really changed the looks of the whole campus. The Lions den is a great attraction. It's not often you can go see a lion in a local habitat.

It has surprisingly nice architecture for a public campus, with more detailing on buildings along a small valley, making it have more of the feel of a small private college. The fountain & lions are a little extra.

This is Alabama's oldest school. It started before the civil war as a women's seminary and went through numerous name changes until it became UNA. The lion habitat is fun but they won't be there if it is game day. They travel to the stadium in a special trailer so they may help celebrate the great tradition that is southern... More

The most interesting part of this campus is the "lions's den". The pair is beautifully groomed. Loved the old buildings mixed with more contemporary architecture.
