Why UAB?

125whyuab

Because from the very beginning, UAB has been doing its own thing – in its own strong, exciting and very forward-thinking way. Because it’s the kind of university that isn’t satisfied with excellence in just one area, offering opportunities for achievement across all disciplines – and cool places to study, work and live. And because best of all, UAB students are not like everyone else. Just like you. So maybe there's no question at all.
