4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities are pretty great. The campus rec. center is excellent. Sports are popular and supported by students and faculty, but do not dominate campus life. There is a good balance in that respect.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at my school are pretty good. The students are very involved and they get a lot of support from fans, other students, and faculty. UAB has great school spirit even though we lost our football team and two other programs. The athletic facilities are truly great.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Before the president of the university cut the football team i would have said it was great or the best but the fan support and school spirit against the decision has made it more bearable. The students have backed other sports and attendance has increased since that decision. The students are really involved and passionate about sports.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Without a football team now, maybe people will start attending other games, but I kind of doubt it.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: We've recently gone through a debacle over losing our football team. However, the students, alumni, staff, and community have rallied around other sports and are pushing to get football back.
