4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I've been through year one of school and UAB and it has gone to a great start interms of classes, but it wasnt that hard to get into. The scheduling works out formme and the job that I am working out now and the workload really works with the amount of stress that is caused from school and work but since I'm not living on campus I cannot give a full rating of everything there is to see on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As a female student, walking alone at night I feel very vulnerable. I don't like to be out late by myself.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Life is pretty good on campus. Students are outgoing and the professors are personable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't feel 100 percent prepared for a job when I graduate. I wish there were more resources for students, and more internships available.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't have a strong opinion about Greek life at my school.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The rec center is top of the line. There are so many options, anything from rowing, to rock climbing, to ping-pong!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has many types of students. They cater to the different needs of each type of student. There are many on-campus activities to help students get involved and stay connected during their time at university.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. I have never had a bad experience with campus safety and neither have my friends. The campus has 100s of help boxes across campus that students may press when they need assistance.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UAB is a very academically driven institution. The university is very accredited and offers a quality education to all of its students. The likelihood of a student getting a job out of school is high.

Campus Housing: I was lucky enough to get into the New Freshman Residence Hall which means that I got into the shiniest, newest building. I have only been in this building, but it is the absolute best. There is an adorable laundromat on the ground floor, and the interior decoration of the lobby is to die for. The wonderful RA's provide countless programs for their residents to learn new things and meet new people. The cost is pretty reasonable to me, and the housing process is super convenient.

Greek Life: I am actually involved in the Greek life on campus. Woo! Go SIGMA KAPPA! I think that the Greek life creates a very positive vibe on campus. Each sorority and fraternity is very big on service and volunteering. They all take their philanthropies very seriously. The non-Greek students all have a respect for Greek life and many are very good friends with several Greeks. There are only sorority suites available as Greek housing, however there are unofficial frat houses.

Athletics: I am ranking athletics as great because I have not personally gotten to really experience the sporting events. I have attended one basketball game so far, but it was an extremely entertaining event. The whole stadium was charged with energy cheering on the team. I loved every second of it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love UAB. The school is filled with students that are passionate about learning. It feels like we are all family in this crazy experience together. I know that I have already made lifelong friends. The professors are very concerned with making sure that their students succeed and definitely provide the resources to allow the success of their students. I am very happy with my decision to attend UAB.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus have lots of police. Matter of fact, this campus has the UAB Police and the Birmingham Police present throughout the day
