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.

We were really floored by how beautiful the campus was - much nicer than the university of Alabama in Tuscaloosa - one of the nicer small campus environments I have ever seen!

Thanks to trip advisor, my husband and I visited this beautiful college campus. We just had to see their mascots, Leo III and Una. It is a beautiful campus...I'm sure my pictures don't do it justice. We visited during the week while classes were in session, so had a hard time finding a parking spot in the visitors lot, but... More

My wife and I were very impressed by the beauty and majesty of the part of the campus that we visited on a beautiful early August Sunday afternoon (3 Aug 2014). We entered the campus via the Harrison entrance, where the magnificent fountain and adjoining lion habitat are located. A wonderful surprise is the President's home which one can see... More
