Everyone who goes to or has gone to UWA has heard over and over, "There is something about this place." Now, of course, we all have our own opinions and we get to decide what that "something" is. There are things about every single campus that make it special to each person. Whether it's the beautiful covered bridge or the delicious Touch of Home Bakery, we all have found our "something" in Livingston. These are just a couple of our favorite things about the wonderful, the awesome, University of West Alabama.
Fried Chicken Wednesday
The only day it's acceptable to wait in a line for 30+ minutes for food. We pretty much worship Fried Chicken Wednesday.
The Covered Bridge
The best view on campus. We cherish this little bridge.
Whether your favorite is Don's, Diamond Jim's, or Austin's we have the most awesome local restaurants around. And the food is worth the wait. Or the drive.
The Painted Bridge
Everyone who attends UWA makes it their goal to leave their mark at the painted bridge.
Everything served at the Bakery is sent straight from heaven. I promise you. Taco salad Thursday truly is every college kid's dream.
Sorry Luke Bryan, Rain is not a good "thang". You can walk into a building at 11 a.m., and it's sunny and 75, then you walk out at 11:03 a.m., and you need a boat to get across campus.
You can travel the world in less than 20 miles.
We have India and Mexico about four minutes from Campus. We have China about two minutes from campus. You can drive to Utah (Eutaw) in less than 20 minutes.
So we have a really really awesome looking football field, which is also the band's field, which is also the soccer field. Wait! That's not all, I swear the other day I also saw the baseball players on the field.
It's standing by a friend, classmate, or teammate as they fight a disease.
It's joining together to support a platform and mourn the loss of a friend.
It is so hard for outsiders to understand the close bond between every single student here. We have become a family. We enjoy these things as a family. We fight as a family. We mourn as a family. At UWA, we are a family.
All these things make UWA home to each and every one of us. We all love it as much as we hate it. We complain about the long wait on Fried Chicken Wednesday and the small town life, but where would we be without it? Whatever your "something" is embrace it, love it, and if it's food, then eat it.
