5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Great change from on-campus Sodexo dining. Five points has quite a few choices!

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Compared to UGA, there is not as much variety; however, for the area, there are quite a few clubs and bars. Talk to upperclassmen to find out which ones are worth it or not.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I absolutely loved living on campus. Rooms were extremely spacious, hallways were big, stairs and elevator access was constant. Great experience.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure, I have not lived off campus yet.

Guys & Girls: Many of the students here are very sweet and caring! Lots of open minded and non judgmental people.

Academics: The professors are amazing and helpful, as long as you ask for it in the right way. Resources are available, take the time to utilize it!

Academics: Classes are challenging; however, professors I have had thus far are extremely helpful and thorough.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I love this campus. It has very nice facilities. I feel like I am at home.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: One of my best decisions.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's nothing compared to UGA.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love UAB and would not change my decision even if I could because the school and atmosphere is great! There are plenty of differing extra curricular options for the diverse quality of students as well as a plethora of nearby hospitals for those interested in medicine. UAB has offered me many opportunities to grow and succeed and I will be forever grateful!

We do need a few more healthy food options though.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are 3 malls just minutes away from campus and are fairly easy to get to. The city is on a grid system so that makes it easy to find your way around campus, which is not too terribly big so you can walk to all of your classes without a problem! The people are extremely friendly which helps make attending UAB a pleasurable experience!

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I just wish the diner was open later.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I have completely fallen in love with Birmingham. There is always something exciting to do and learn about.

4 College Senior

Diversity: UAB is known for its diversity and we pride ourselves in being an open-minded university.
