University of Alabama - Birmingham Graduate Reviews

25 reviews
Overall, my experience with UAB has been wonderful! The city is vibrant and fairly diverse, while still maintaining the classic southern charm characteristics. People on my side of campus (medical campus) are very friendly and I love that the food scene caters to the students — the bars serve their drinks in science laboratory beakers! The campus itself is very nice and the hospital is well kept. My classrooms are clean and have excellent technological services, which contrasts quite significantly to some of my undergraduate college’s older rooms. The education I have received has been very helpful and thorough, and it seems as though the professors really are interested in the success of their students (as I’d hope they’d be...). Certain areas of Birmingham feel fairly unsafe, but aside from that characteristic that most cities have, there are many incredible neighborhoods of Birmingham that aren’t (i.e. 5 points, Highlands, etc).

I love the academic community and the compassion and wellness we harbor for one another within our micro culture. Student life itself offers a semi-protective bubble from the outside world, but also offers personal experience to observe, learn, and immerse oneself with other different cultures that culminate within the classroom. I love the team-based learning in public health and have learned so much, not only from the teachers but also from my teammates who hail from all different walks of life.
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.
