What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University of Alabama at Birmingham is a really great school! I recommend it to all of my younger, high school friends and I have enough managed to convince a friend of mine to transfer after finding out her college was not suiting her needs. UAB has a variety of student involvements. Last summer, I tried out the Greek life at UAB and found that it was really enjoyable. Even though I did not follow through and joined a sorority, I have maintained friendships with the other girls that rushed with me. UAB also holds regular student-involvement fairs to make sure nobody feels left out. I have also gotten involved in intermural volleyball! I knew I didn’t want to play in the collegiate level, so I tried my hand in the intermural where it is so much more laid back. We are focused on winning, but we are also just trying to have a good time playing the sport we love! The professors here at the University of Alabama at Birmingham really enjoy what they do, and they make sure to try to get you (the students) the enjoy it too. They always open to office hours and they even make exceptions if you are really struggling in their class. To those professors, it’s not about coming in, teaching what’s required, and then collecting their paychecks, they are there to also further their knowledge, they are excited to share with you what they know and they’re excited to hear what you know. They’re always open to discussions and even some philosophical arguments if that means you are understanding. Overall, I think UAB needs to be the top university because of how great and involved it is! I’m even planning to go there to get my masters.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a great school for academics. If your'e looking for the average college life scene you see in movies or on television this is not the college for you. UAB is not a school to be slept on due to how competitive it is. We don't have any Frat or Sort houses but do still have Fraternities and Sororities. Our party life is below average and campus can get boring during the winter months. On a scale of 1-10 our social life is about a 5. On a scale of 1-10 of how hard the academics are here is about a 9. Also UAB may not be the best college now but it will surely be in the future. UAB is always growing and currently at the moment they are making new dorms and buildings for the students. Campus is beautiful. Parking could get better and we could have more of a social life but as long as your class isn't lame you should be fine. The football team is also getting better every year and I believe in the next 5-10 years we could be on the level of SEC teams. All together UAB has its down falls but it is a great school and isn't the worst thing on the planet.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Go Blazers! The University of Alabama at Birmingham is in the heart of historical Birmingham, AL. The beautiful brick and glass building make UAB building stand out from the other structures. The education and support staff work extremely hard to ensure not only while attending the school, but after one graduates as well. The athletics department has many games going on and special events to promote community involvement. I stayed on-campus all four years during my undergraduate years and they were great quality. The housing staff was always there to listen and work through anything. I would recommend UAB for those who want a great campus in an urban environment with an abundance of possibilities and opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is one of the best universities in the state. All who attend can have confidence that they will receive an excellent education. However, because of the size of the school, it is often impersonal. It is even more impersonal for those of us who live off campus. There are a lot of pros and cons for those attending UAB.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College is a great place to be on all fronts. It has an amazing aura in the classrooms, dorms, sport center, and overall feel in the area. UAB does it’s best to take care of students whether it be helping with before or after class tutoring, mental health, dorm problems, recreation events, and security. They go above and beyond in these areas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I didn’t realize I wanted to go to UAB until I went to the Blazer night in Mobile. Both, my dad and I, realized how amazing and beautiful the school really was. Even though, it’s about 4 hours from where I live, the opportunities that UAB gives it’s students is amazing. I also had the chance to get an current students perspective about the extracurriculars and the professors. All I heard was great things about both. I’m excited to further my education at UAB in the future!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hate it personally. I know most of my friends are content here, but I haven't met anyone who loves it. I rushed for panhellenic sororities and multicultural ones and both were a horrible experience. I've made friends, but no one I feel close to or would want to be close to. I've always been social and there's nothing to do outside of class besides boring night clubs. Almost all of my friends are not students here. The professors either love what they teach or they couldn't care less about the material. Either way, the professors generally don't make an effort to know the students and are not here to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was very impressed by the campus in my time there. All the facilities were well kept, and the staff was very kind and helpful, as well as willing to do so. It compares quite well if not better then other campuses I have visited in the past, and would highly recommend this university for and future graduate or undergraduate students.
