If you are truly looking to get the most out of your college experience, then you should consider living on campus!  Living in the residence halls is the best way to meet your fellow students, keep up with what is going on around campus, and most importantly experience a little independance. I think any current UM student that lives on campus will tell you that what makes living on campus special is the spontaneous trips to Waffle House at 1:00AM with your friends on the hall, the impromptu Xbox 360 Madden NFL tournaments, and the all-nighters studying for an all important exam.  Those are the memories that you will take with you long after your graduate.

The University of Montevallo moved up — again — on the college-rankings ladder and is the highest-ranked public university in Alabama to be included in the regional master’s-level list in the 2009 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” edition, released Friday, Aug. 22.

UM, in its division, also posted a No. 2 ranking in the South in a category called “Great Schools-Great Prices,” (called “Best Colleges: Best Values” online) noting schools that are the best values.
