Why Choose the University of North Alabama?


The University of North Alabama traces its roots to 1830 and LaGrange College, the first state-chartered college in Alabama. Today UNA is a thriving, modern institution of over 10,000+ students and one live lion, our beloved mascot Leo. Located in beautiful, safe Florence, Alabama, UNA offers fully-accredited, high-quality instruction from full-time, professional faculty in small classes, giving students the personal connection and encouragement to achieve great things.

International students can get the American college experience with a traditional garden-style, residential campus, active student body, Division I athletic teams and caring faculty and staff. Our students are personally assisted by staff in the Office of International Affairs to ensure a warm welcome full of “Southern Hospitality” and a continuing commitment to student success and well-being.
