5 College Freshman

Diversity: UAB is extremely diverse. There are various ethnic/racial groups and clubs on campus; as well as many clubs and organizations geared toward informing and nurturing growing political and religious beliefs, abuse victims, etc.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I feel like UAB is a very accepting campus, but you can tell that the groups are separated by their own choice. I actively take part in UAB's Baptist Campus Ministry group and recommend that to anyone that is looking for a religious place to fit in and meet great people!
