College Guide: University of Montevallo


FOUNDED IN 1896, the University of Montevallo is nestled in the heart of Alabama, approximately 35 miles south of Birmingham.

Designed by the architects behind New York’s Central Park and the grounds surrounding North Carolina’s Biltmore House, our campus serves as a picturesque backdrop to match the University’s world-class educational offerings: white columns, expansive lawns, brick walkways and stately oaks. The campus’ beauty has earned widespread acclaim, and Thrillist.com has named the University of Montevallo one of the “Most Beautiful Public College Campuses in America.”

As the only small, public, liberal arts university in Alabama, the University of Montevallo has the charm of a private school experience but provides the value of a state-supported institution. Montevallo’s list of national accolades grows each year.

At UM, we don’t merely inspire – we teach our students how to harness inspiration, become versatile and give back. Montevallo offers academic programs in four colleges: Arts and Sciences, Business, Education & Human Development and Fine Arts. Students choose from 35 degree programs and more than 75 majors and concentrations. They participate in an educational environment boasting an average class size of 23 and have unprecedented opportunities for conducting undergraduate research under full-time faculty mentors.

UM fields 21 NCAA Division II athletic teams competing in the Gulf South Conference and Great Lakes Valley Conference, giving student-athletes ample opportunity to don the purple and gold.
