About Montgomery

Montgomery River Front

Montgomery River Front

Montgomery, Alabama, is the convergence of history with the future—a blend of Old South charm with New South sizzle. Visitors to Montgomery are awed by the history that surrounds them in this capital city. From the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, many of the events that shaped American culture happened in and around Montgomery.

Today, Montgomery leads the way as the heart of the New South: progressive, vibrant, and culturally alive. On campus, students are minutes away from a variety of attractions, including the Alabama Shakespeare Festival; the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts; the Montgomery Zoo; Riverwalk Stadium (home of Montgomery Biscuits baseball); Riverwalk Amphitheater; the State Capitol, archives, and legislature; the Montgomery Ballet; the Alabama Dance Theater; the Montgomery Symphony; international business centers and offices, and numerous historic landmarks. Just a block away from campus are the quaint shops and restaurants of the Old Cloverdale Business District.

Montgomery is within easy driving distance of Birmingham (90 miles), Atlanta (170 miles), the Gulf of Mexico (160 miles), and New Orleans (300 miles). The area enjoys a pleasant climate, featuring warm summers and mild winters.

A list of hotels, a map of the area, and airport transportation is included for your convenience as you plan your visit to campus.
