The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is a nationally recognized university that has everything a student could wish for. It is top-tier in academics, hosts an enormous amount of campus activities, has a thriving Greek life, and prepares students excellently for their future. If a student wishes to receive a quality education but still wants to have the full college experience, then UAB is the college of choice.
Agam from Hoover, AL
Despite being in the center of Birmingham, UAB feels like it's in its own little bubble. UAB is also currently undergoing a lot of renovations, with a new freshman dorm and student center being built for incoming students of 2015-2016. Lastly, UAB is arguably the best medical school in the state of Alabama.
