Why study in Livingston?

Livingston is a small city in Alabama, US, and is the county seat of Sumter County. It is home to the University of West Alabama, which sits on a 600 acre campus. Lake LU is also located in the University campus, and offers picnic spots, fishing, boating and pavilions available to rent. The city has a number of historic sites, including Lakewood mansion and the Sumter County Courthouse.

The city offers students a close, quiet community to live and learn in, but for those that want the excitement of big cities, New Orleans, Atlanta and Nashville are all within easy reach. Livingston is also not far from the Gulf Coast beaches for those that fancy a weekend by the sea.

    The transport link is very weak, you only have the possibility as an international student with no car to travel home on the weekends at the end of the semester, most of the student had very long waiting times at the airport because the bus was only traveling once. The choices to go out and party was not much, just one bar in town, otherwise, you had to drive more than 30 minutes to the next bigger city or university. Which was not that bad, because that way you were able to concentrate on learning something and go out only a couple of times.

    The city I am studying in is one of the safest areas in the US. The locals are all very nice to me. Because this is a small town, transportation access, shops, nightlife can be limited.
