What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being a first-time freshman at UAB was a significant step forward in my academic success. At first, I was a little nervous to go to a big school that known for their diversity and academics but the people at UAB made me feel like a family and made me think that anybody can come here and be safe because that's how we set our environment to everybody. I'm glad that I'm attending UAB and I wouldn't want it any other way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally sometimes wish UAB had a more traditional (such as gated) campus. Also, there isn't much to do on campus on the weekends, as many students are commuters and don't stay on campus on the weekends, and many students who do live on campus are from nearby and go home on the weekends instead of staying on campus. Overall, academics are fine -- if you're a pre-med student, academics are excellent (and difficult) since UAB has a great medical school. While the campus isn't a "traditional," the undergraduate campus is still distinct from the other schools and the rest of downtown, so that's good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly enjoy attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham! The campus and the people there are life one big family. There are people at the university that truly care about the students, faculty, and professors. The processors care about the students and are available to help students and if not then they have teacher assistants who are willing to be of assistance. I fell in love with UAB since my high school days and it has been a part of my life since my sophomore year. Now, as a first-year student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham I can say it was everything I expected and more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's not an ideal college. It's not somewhere you go if you want a true college experience. In my opinion there is not that much to do, you just go to class then you go home. Organizations, soros, and frats make it a little better but not too much. There isn't really a valid reason to come here unless you're pre-med or just looking for cheap. The price is probably the best part about this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this university. I'm a pretty academically-inclined guy, and UAB in no way disappoints. It'd be the stuff if I'm able to spend my life doing research as a neuroscientist, and UAB has already given me the opportunity to get work done in a research lab. Aside from fancy brain stuff, though, UAB is embedded in Birmingham--one of the best kept secrets in the Southeast. There's always something to do, somewhere to go, a sunset to see, or someone to meet. I appreciate this place so much, I actually give tours for incoming students. So, needless to say, there's no place I'd rather be than UAB. Go Blazers!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school with nice amenities and a variety of services and resources. There are many places to study and obtain coursework assistance. On campus jobs and work study are available. There are different organizations and students from many backgrounds, making it easier to find friends and acquaintances. Some negative attributes include the campus being located in the community with no borders, allowing for outsiders to come in and potentially harass students, which has occurred before. It is important to utilize safety features of the campus in those situations, but other than that, it is relatively safe. There is not a variety in shops besides the restaurants located off campus. There are some delicious places to dine at, but many involve walking or driving off campus, and with the many streets and some unpredictable drivers, it can be nerve-wracking and tiring going to those places. Other than that, UAB is an enjoyable school that I would recommend.
