We went to UNA and saw the lions. The campus is beautiful and not crowded on a Saturday. We didn't explore the whole campus due to time constraints but it is a very relaxing place.

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.
