I went while home to see family. The campus is incredibly beautiful and we got to see the lions roar. The few students who were on campus were friendly and it was overall an enjoyable experience. The only issue was limited visitor parking.

I am from a town which has another small University and our visit to UNA was a great one. We were able to travel around campus at ease. Lots of interesting things to see, but you must drop by the lion cage to see the Lion's

Great College with very excellent professors and staff. The cleaning lady's should be greatly awarded and those who prepare such great services, as they are the ones who make many things run smoothly. I believe they should be highly recognized and a great thank you to keeping the University - inside and the outdoors are meticulous, I don't think the... More

This was an amazing experience. We were with our granddaughter and were able to get the "GRAND" tour. Ann is a true gem and obviously has a passion for her work. Kudos to her!

Took my 16 year old daughter and 2 friends to Florence for her 16th birthday. We visited UNA campus. campus is beautiful. Many places to take great pictures. The lion mascot display was good. Got to see Leo and Una up close. Just a nice little pit stop to see things you don't see every day.

The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the lions are great to watch when you have extra time.

We live within 10 miles of the campus. We always take out of town guests there to see how beautiful it really is. Especially in the spring. The fountain is beautiful and the lions Leo and Una are always a treat to see. Guests are surprised to see there are actual live lions living on campus. Definitely a must see... More

I have never attended a ballgame or a class at UNA. (Hotty Toddy!) However, I have been taking my children to the lion habitat on campus for more than a decade. When we are in the area - sometimes 3-4 times a year - we always stop in to see Una and Leo. They never disappoint. Beautiful campus!!

First of all, what a beautiful campus! Love the fountains and the buildings look like ones you would find in England instead of Alabama. The lions were sleeping but you could see them. Their enclosure was very nice. If you have kids and live nearby take them to see these big cats.

Beautiful campus! Met the lion's "mommy", the lady who raised the 2 lions, she loved talking about them. If you go on the weekends, you'll more than likely see her. The lions are beautiful and just relaxing to watch.
