We’re the University of South Alabama. South, for short. Home to nearly 15,000 students and more than 100 academic programs, our University is a dynamic community of leaders and learners who support and challenge one another to be actively engaged citizens who advance the Gulf Coast region and the world.

Founded in 1963, South’s vision is to foster an environment that couples engaging learning experiences with high-level research, enabling our faculty and students to be leaders in their disciplines. The unique and beautiful Gulf Coast region is a catalyst for discovery and innovation, and South’s 1,200-acre campus has been transformed over the past decade with new facilities and resources for housing and recreation, health sciences, the arts, engineering, computer science and athletics.

Jaguar athletes compete in 17 Division I sports, including baseball, basketball, football, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, and volleyball.

The coastal region is healthier because of the USA Health system. Through its five components — USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital, University Hospital, USA Mitchell Cancer Institute, USA Physicians Group and the College of Medicine — USA Health provides care to hundreds of thousands of people and is a training ground for future physicians and health care professionals.

USA is a place where students discover and strengthen their career passions, and form connections that result in lifelong relationships. At South, we look at the world and see things that we have the power to change, affect and shape — together. So that’s exactly what we do, every single day.

Reviews
1. I attended the University of South Alabama (USA) where I obtained a bachelors in chemistry. I thoroughly enjoyed my undergraduate years at USA because the campus was not too big but it was not too small. The class sizes were small enough where building a relationship with the professor was never an issue. The school offered many different organizations to allow different students to get involved on campus and meet people who shared some of the same interests as them. Getting involved on campus was extremely helpful for me because it allowed me to build friendships that I still have today. Having those close friends are vital because college is by no means an easy task to accomplish and you can not do it alone. The Department of Chemistry, my degree program, was a rather small department but being small is what allowed the students and faculty to gain a close relationship. Every Friday we would have a guest speaker to teach us about the type of chemistry work they do and give us recommendations on how to be successful after graduation. After the speaker finished their presentation, we would then have lunch which included the speaker of the day, the students, and the faculty. Along with any questions we may have had for the speaker, we would also casually talk to our professors about anything we have going on within our lives. This allowed not only the students to get to know each other on a personal level but for the faculty to get to know the students personally as well. My advice to future students would be to get out and get involved in organizations the school has to offer and get to know the professors on a personal level. Majority of the professors I built a bond with always did anything they could to help me with whatever I needed which played a major role in getting me to the point where I am today. 2. The mechanical engineering program was very demanding and staffed with tenured professors who were very knowledgeable in the subject matter. Class sizes were small enough and there were plenty of places (campus library, computer lab, etc.) to study. As an engineer in an industry where obtaining a professional engineering license is required for advancement, south alabama's requirement to take the EIT makes the process simple. The program more than adequately prepares you for this exam, and the required time management skills that you will learn will make you a decent engineer in industry.
