Experience Tuscaloosa!

United States Southeast Tuscaloosa

With Mercedes-Benz and Michelin/BF Goodrich in town, there's little surprise automotive, electronics, and steel are important to Tuscaloosa. But natural history and the city's rich culture play an even larger part, with Moundville Archaeological Park, the ruins at Capitol Park, Alabama Museum of Natural History, and Gorgas House Museum all very popular visitor spots.

Where You Will Live

University of Alabama

University of Alabama focuses on supporting students like you and helping them to achieve academic excellence. This is accomplished through innovative teaching methods and by passionate professors. Campus culture is part and parcel of the community identity.

Locals follow university sports closely, especially American college football tournaments, which Alabama—as the one of the nation’s best teams—usually wins. You’ll want to attend every game, but if you can’t find a seat in the stands, you’ll still hear the famous Bama cheer of “Roll Tide!” in classrooms and around town. In short, look no further for the all-American experience.
