My school is well known for being diverse and unique. The faculty, as well as students, are a wide span of cultures. UAB has an amazing campus with many opportunities attainable. My school is also famed for being a medical school. We devote time to helping people, such as researching cures for various types of cancer.

UAB is located right next to the Birmingham hospital. Therefore, most students are enrolled as a Biology major. Attending UAB means many connections to the hospital and a competative graduate program. Because our graduate program is so competative, it pushes students to be the best that they can possibly be. When only the top students make it out of the graduate program, it means that UAB makes the most advanced doctors in the country.
