What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I think the University of Alabama at Birmingham is a great school. The academics and class room settings are superior to other schools. The school is top ten in the nation for my major Healthcare Management and has a huge hospital affiliated with the school. Living on and off campus is quite expensive. The city of Birmingham is dangerous as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UAB is a lovely school. I can’t wait to enroll. I belong there. UAB offers everything that is needed and much more. From housing to events and entertainment, UAB is a school of excellence. When touring I found that UAB is full of academic opportunities. For example, two students may choose the same major and take different paths from there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are so many options for any major one could want to go into. It's the only college I know that's nearby and in-state and has Accounting with a concentration in forensics. The University of Alabama at Birmingham is my top college choice and I doubt I'll regret my decision.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so glad I applied for UAB. It has been the best experience ever. I feel like the professors are willing to help students in need. UAB also provides many opportunities of extra academic help, such as, free tutoring, SI tutoring, recitation classes, and facilities free for students to use to study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think UAB is a good fit for all types of students. They have many students that are young and very involved. They also have some students that are busy with life, careers, and family but are looking to further their education. They also have an awesome online learning system. There is usually always someone who is willing to help you with whatever you may need. They also provide several resources to help you with your classroom success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Alabama at Birmingham provides many majors that are not offered at other places. My major Genetics is one of these majors that are rarely offered at any college. UAB also offers a variety of different courses that are interesting to take. However, there seems to be many downsides to going to this college. First on-campus housing, I live in Camp Hall which is great overall, but on move in day I noticed many disturbing things about my room. For example, my closet smelled like pee it was very bad and it ended up stinking up the whole dorm, my hall is a service animal hall, but the pee was not an animals. My dorm also ended up smelling really strongly of B.O. I was not warned about these smells before entering my dorm, but I was lucky enough to bring enough air fresher to make the room smell better. These smells did not go away for weeks, even with extensive sweeping and mopping. Second the Commons, the main dinning place on campus, it was great for the first few weeks, but after a while it got repetitive. However, that is not the worst part of it. One morning I went to the Commons to get some pancakes to eat, but when I bite into one I found some type of mystery meat inside, when I looked at my second pancake it did not look like this. Third, like many other colleges, UAB hits you with unexpected fees. One has to deal with your insurance plan, if you do not have a certain insurance plan then you are required to purchase UAB insurance plan which is $2,000. For these reasons I would not recommend this college unless you are prepared to live off-campus and cook your own food.

I love it!! The only negative thing to say is parking is horrendous! They should invest in some lot 15 parking decks! The atmosphere is amazing and so are the people!! The food on campus is good, but I personally do not like the commons! There is so much to do on campus to get involved!

Great school to attend regardless of your major. The possibilities of hands-on experiences are extensive. Being a freshmen, I am afforded the opportunity to shadow nurses within a medical setting. I will take full advantage of these blessings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a outstanding school. The campus itself it very nice. There is a variety of things to do and places to go. The campus people are so friendly and welcoming. They have an amazing Cafeteria full of variety of different foods to satisfy each and every person on the campus. The online classes are also great if attending school isn't a good option for you. I'm a 10th grade student and I have been taking dual enrollment classes since the end of my 9th grade year. Online you can find live tutors, its easy to contact your instructor and easy to use website. Overall UAB is an Amazing school.
