  • Mar-28-2018 I am a current student here

    I love living in the city and having access to downtown while also going to school. UAB is very diverse, which I also love. The premed programs are the best in the southeast, and I know I made the right choice coming to this school.

    The campus is on the south end of downtown Birmingham. The campus is very small but lively, and it is easy to get to classes in 10 minutes. There is always construction going on and development occurring.

    UAB was the only college I wanted to go to and the only one that I applied to. I was so thrilled when I got in and I had all these expectations of what it was like when I got up here, but they were wrong they were totally wrong. UAB is so much more than I expected, the campus is beautiful, the food is amazing, the professors are patient and understanding, and the students are so diverse and friendly. UAB is really a wonderful place.

    as a future freshman of the university of alabama in birmingham, i believe that this university will grant me knowledge that will change my world and will prepare me for the challenges that i may face in life after college. after researching this school and taking a campus tour, i knew that i wanted to be apart of the uab family and this school became the dominant choice on my college list. i am willing to do whatever it takes to be accepted and to become apart of the best family in the state of alabama: the blazer family.

    Good solid look school. Great academics and programs but a little too costly and not worth unless going in state.

    UAB is a school of excellent. The one thing you won't find here is a professor just giving you a grade. They have high expectations with little room for excuses.
