    There are so many things to do for fun here! You can take a short drive to Oak Mountain State Park and hike, kayak, paddle board, or swim in the lake. You can go visit the Vulcan. There's also an area called Five Points that is really close to campus, and it is filled with good restaurants.

    The recreation center is often enjoyable and used by students, alumni, and many surrounding citizens of the area. The Green is a fun place to hangout, relax, or even partake in activities such as Frisbee, soccer, or even a good game of football. Also, it is utilized for skateboarding, bicycling, and just a great walking trail to ease your mind.

    The rec center at UAB is huge. I always go up there and play basketball with my friends. Outside of the rec you really can do whatever. There's always something going on around campus.

    One of UAB's most fun places would be the campus recreation center that is home to basketball courts, tennis courts, swimming pool, and many others as well. There are many different things to do in the campus rec but there are also different sporting events that are happening around campus that students can attend for a really low price.

    Since UAB is in the middle of Birmingham, there are restaurants and stores within walking distance. There are also several large suburbs around Birmingham, so there is basically anything you could ever want to do within a 30 minute drive.

    UAB is in Birmingham and is great for night life. Five Points , which is an area of Birmingham a few blocks away from campus, has a ton of night clubs, restaurants, and bars.

    It downtown Birmingham! There are tons of clubs, places for live music, and places to eat. There is enough Greek life for parties and all that stuff, if that's what you're into, but you can completely ignore that if that's not what you're into. I have seen more live musicians here in Birmingham than I had in my whole life before it!

    Go to Social events and there are plenty other places that are surrounding it, beside what is on campus.
