5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security patrols at all times and there are campus help buttons all over campus. You can see at least 3 Help towers wherever you are on campus. I definitely carry a pocket knife and pepper spray if I walk around at night, but that's just to give me a little extra security. I feel safe at all hours of the day, and the majority of the evening/night hours on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: UAB takes pride in protecting its students from sexual assault. I feel very safe in regards to this issue.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus at UAB. However, one should always be aware of one's surroundings and make good decisions.
