    While UAB is a great school for those wishing to go on to medical school, it also offers plenty of top-notch programs in other areas of study. As it is in the middle of the largest city in Alabama, there is always something going on, so getting involved is easy. And despite its seemingly large size, you really have a small campus feel when you're walking around.

    UAB is for the open-minded, and serious student. This is not a school for someone who is passionate about college athletics. This is a medicine oriented school.

    UAB is a really good school when it comes down to the Medical and the business field, but I would say that they do have a good choice of majors for those who wants to expand their knowledge. As far as Social events, I would say that they are really good at creating social events and getting students together to meet new people or other students that they could relate to.

    Uab's open campus is kept beautiful year-round. The location is perfect to downtown and 5-points area. The campus is big enough to where you don't see the same people every day but small enough to where you don't feel alone in a sea of people.

    UAB is a great school, especially for those interested in the medical field, for it is home of one of the premier and preferred hospitals in the country. UAB is very diverse, and has a great selection of extracurricular activities for every niche. UAB is constantly evolving, and improving its aesthetics, giving the campus a pleasant place to be.
