Other famous graduates of the University of Alabama include:
Timothy Leary BA Psychology 1943;
Sela Ward BA Art and Advertising 1977.
By the way, if one says "The University of Alabama" it is assumed that one is referring to the campus in Tuscaloosa (no one ever says "UA Tuscaloosa"). The others are referred to as UAB (The University of Alabama at Birmingham) and UAH (The University of Alabama at Huntsville).
The best things about The University of Alabama do not include New College, but rather the Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business Administration, which is nationally ranked, and the medical school at UAB, whose cardiology unit is known world wide and whose hospital receives generous federal and private research funding.
