I love UAB because you get to experience a world that is extremely diverse! While it is so different in many ways, you are able to bring your own uniqueness to UAB and become apart of their family. They encourage and accept all types of individuals in order to not only support the students attending the school, but support the future of the world. With UAB being able to accept and welcome such a diverse group of individuals it only benefits them more and continues to grow their success, because they learn from each other and grow with each other, making their goal to better society as one family.

Well I was a transfer student from Coastal Alabama. I’ve been wanted to attend UAB since high school, but my ACT scores were not acceptable. So I decided to go to a community college, at first, then transfer. Well two years later, I was accepted in Fall 2017. I love the diversity at UAB. The teachers are very helpful and friendly. The students are very fun to hang out with. There’s always something to do at UAB whether it’s a basketball, football, soccer game or maybe go for a swim in our indoor lazy river! But overall, my experience at UAB is excellent!
The University of Alabama in Birmingham has a beautiful campus and wonderful food options available! There is not a thing I would change about the University of Alabama in Birmingham! The University has a very safe and inviting campus as well as a vibrant student life. All of the student organizations are very welcoming to all new students and try to get them involved. The whole University is devoted towards academics and promotes good grades by providing important resources for the student body.
