Sure, you’re at college for an education, but that hardly stops at a degree.
A college education involves the whole college experience, whether you’re reading in class, working in the lab, discussing brilliant ideas in a coffee shop, expanding your horizons out in the community, climbing the walls at the Rec Center, or napping on the Campus Green (which isn’t all that educational but certainly is refreshing). We’re a big campus that feels like a small campus, so you’re not going to run out of student groups, activities, and opportunities before you run out of hours in the day. Just remember to take time out to breathe.
Craving the sort of canned fruit, mystery meat and slightly doughy glop you struggled to choke down all through elementary school? Sorry, we can't help. Instead, think delicious food, wide variety, good prices, lots of places.
Student Activities & Organizations
Experts recommend two hours of studying for every hour spent in class. Doctors recommend eight hours of sleep a night. That leaves 67 hours to sit around and get bored—or to get out and do something exciting and entertaining with UAB’s student activities and organizations.
Recreation & Intramurals
What’s the use of a healthy brain when your body is going to mush? Take advantage of all UAB Campus Recreation has to offer—from weights and cardio classes to kayaking and intramural Wiffle Ball—to get active and stay active.
