UAB Alma Mater

Here in Alabama, a place of rich diversity,

Stands our Alma Mater. We cherish her integrity.

May each loyal son and daughter wear

Proudly the colors green and gold.

Praise to thee our U.A.B. Her honor we uphold.

Yearning minds of age and youth

Live and love her noble truth.

Moving ahead with blazing speed

T’wards knowledge to empow’r,

In the heart of Birmingham our U.A.B. stands proud.

Words and Music by David McNeeley

Editor's Note: The UAB Alma Mater was composed by Birmingham native David McNeeley in 2003.  A competition was held, and a committee comprising UAB faculty, administrators, students, and alumni selected it from numerous submissions.  The Alma Mater expresses the unifying sentiments of pride, respect, and cherished memories for the university.
