The scums okay. I’d rather register myself for course than go through an advisor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As an entering Freshman I found many of the reviews helpful and the school to be a driven educator of the future. The history in the area has also made me want to attend as well as the potential for study abroad- I found this one of the most drawing points for the school.

University of Alabama at Birmingham is an extremely strong school with a ton of positives. he school is full of resources and you can find a lot of strong minded students. The school never makes it feel like you are going alone. Theres also plenty of activities to ensure you are never truly bored. Don't be fooled the school has a major focus on education and school always comes first. The other students understand this and always make time for studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UAB was an excellent experience for me. Though certainly not the most demanding school around, I'd say it's on par with other state schools in the area. UAB provides the opportunity to get an excellent education, though it's probably possible to get through without having done so. This school is certainly at the same level as many others, is possibly more damaged by the name of the location, I think not many people are aware that a scientific ground breaking facility is in Alabama. In medical science it is close to the level of the Mayo clinic and other better known identities. It is important to know that when you come here you might get to know a different culture and social behavior than other countries or states within the US but at the end most of us are interested in what we are doing and motivated, thus making adaptation easier.

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.
