My experience at UAB has been life changing! I have grown so much just from being a student. I am involved on campus within the Housing Department, Engineering Department, and Student Involvement. UAB offers so many extracurricular activities, so that students will not just excel in academics but in organizations that they find themselves involved in!
I am so happy that I chose UAB. I love the fact that my Professors are engaging and approachable. There are many opportunities for student activities which allows for the perfect balance between academics and social enrichment. Because the campus is located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, there is an urban energy that invites off campus exploration. There are many venues in walking distance to the campus. I have always felt relatively safe on campus. I feel there are significant safety measures in place to encourage students to access all campus resources. I would certainly be a recruiter ambassador for the university.
