    UAB is a highly accredited college full of diverse students and awesome opportunities. The classes can be tough, but the job rate is very high for graduating students, which is an important factor to consider when choosing a college. If you work hard, you will get what you honestly deserve in the end!

    The University of Alabama has great programs, especially if you want to join the medical field, nursing is huge here! However, because of this much of the smaller departments get little funding and there's always construction going on to expand the school. The night life here is pretty extensive if you know where to go, and the Greek life is always up to something.

    UAB is an awesome school. However, be prepared to study and really learn a lot. Undergraduate research is a huge part of the average college experience here, not partying.

    Despite being in the center of Birmingham, UAB feels like its in its own little bubble. UAB is also currently undergoing a lot of renovation, with a new freshman dorm and student centering being built for incoming students of 2015-2016. Lastly, UAB is arguable the best medical school in the state of Alabama.

    UAB has a lot to offer in terms of clubs, organizations, and events to get involved with. It's a relatively large school, but it has the feel of a smaller school, because you see familiar faces everywhere. You will be surrounded by diverse students who have high aspirations.
