This is a beautiful campus to visit and a neat place that is free; you can see beautiful fountains, beautifully preserved buildings with a variety of architecture, and two lions!

If you love the south, water fountains, life lions, this is well worth to go check out. My kids enjoyed going to see the lions and beautiful scenery to take pictures!

Visit the lions at the campus. We went twice. First time it was a bit hot and they were indoors. There is seating that’s covered and the you can view them through glass. The fountains, buildings, and landscaping are also very nice.

My daughter initially overlooked UNA, but fate has brought her where she likely always needed to be. She is super excited about the major offerings and the college setting.

Adorable, clean campus complete with a Starbucks and Chick Fillet. Don’t forget to visit Una and Leo, the lions. Beautiful enclosure for them. Friendly, articulate students. Don’t miss the George Lindsey Film Festival in March that shows free films all weekend from emerging film makers!

UNA is an old college. Renovations over the last 20 minutes have only enhanced the original architecture of the campus. Yes, real lions live on campus and come out daily for visitors to watch. Don’t expect any lion fights or hijinks. They mostly sleep and...More

Sorry don't know the feeding schedule but here is the number you can call 256-765-4100. Florence is in Central time zone so I expect best time to call would be after 9am.
