4 College Sophomore

Academics: Many just think of UAB as a medical school. I'm going because of their amazing theatre program. I was recruited by many schools, but UAB was my top choice. The dept chair has won a Tony Award. Theatre UAB brings in visiting directors, choreographers, playwrights from all over the world.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: This is a school for people who prefer academics over social scene. The school is more focused on science than the liberal arts

4 College Freshman

Academics: UAB is very healthcare oriented, so health science majors are popular and common among students. Honors college, various libraries, and student success networks are great resources on campus.

College Junior

Academics: I just recently declared my major as Biology, so I can't really say much about the workload, classes, or program. I have looked at the classes that are offered and there are loads of exciting looking classes and study abroad opportunities! Being a biology major, I don't expect finding an internship/job will be very difficult.
