What are the most popular student activities/groups?


There are many clubs and organizations that students can join on campus. There are also fraternities and sororities of course. There are also many festivities that are held year round so students can really enjoy themselves on campus.


The thing about UAB organizations is, well, they're everywhere! We have over 100 student organizations, and they're all pretty active. There's not a day that goes by that there's not a guest lecture, performer, or some sort of group activitiy going on on campus. I am pretty involved on campus, and I met a lot of my friends through the groups to which I belong. Getting involved is important at any campus, but I think UAB makes each group feel like they matter--there isn't a real hierarchy among groups. Yes, some groups have more funding, but that doesn't mean that they're necessarily better than other groups. There's not a Greek/nonGreek war going on, either. The Greeks are just other student organizations, and they work with everyone to do good things in our community. It's not all sunshine and roses, but it's pretty great to feel like everyone belongs at UAB.
