Diversity: There are all types of people that go to school here, and I have never seen anyone not being accepted. It is a very welcoming campus and I feel like everyone gets along really well and accepts people that may be different from themselves.

5 College Student

Diversity: UAB is the most diverse university that I have ever seen. Everyone is accepted. Race/ethnicity, economic background, political beliefs, religion, and sexual orientation issues are not here. If you like to be involved in those sort of issues, this is not the university for you.
