The pros vs. the, well, pros.
We can think of all sorts of reasons for you to join us at UAB. We offer an exceptional education. We’ve got lots of fun activities. We’re adjacent to a business district loaded with career opportunities. We’re diverse. We’re affordable. So is there a reason not to attend UAB? Well, we guess if you have an aversion to the color green or something, maybe you should pick a different school. Then again, nah. Who doesn’t love green?
Not to brag, but we’re good at this. Really good. In fact, we keep getting ranked on list after list for our academics. That’s nice and everything, but our real prize comes from seeing our graduates go on to do amazing things using the very skills they learned here. We’re proud of them. So can you blame us if we brag from time to time?
Our city is amazing. In fact, we call it the Magic City. We have renowned restaurants and entertainment. World-class museums and theatres. Murals all over town. More parks than you can imagine. And a 56-foot tall statue of the Roman god of fire standing guard over it all. Like we said, amazing.
We’ve put a high priority on investigating and discovering. We rake in hundreds of millions of dollars in research funding every year from all sorts of donors. And if you’re a freshman, we’ll be eager to get you into the game right off the bat. Because, like we said, it’s a priority here.
Innovation + Entrepreneurship
Business is a big deal for us. In particular, entrepreneurship. In fact, through our Bill L. Harbert Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and our UAB Blazer Innovation Challenge, we’ve helped launch many student-led start-ups. Maybe yours will be next.
If we haven’t mentioned our multiple Diversity Championship awards from INSIGHT into Diversity magazine in the last 15 minutes, well, then we’re due to bring it up. We’re extremely proud to be one of the most diverse universities in America. And we’re always eager to talk about it.
Career Outcomes + Internships
One of our greatest advantages here at UAB is our proximity to so many businesses. Big corporations. Small operations. Innovative start-ups. We’ve got a little bit of everything here in Birmingham. And that means lots of opportunity for you.
At UAB, we strive to offer a great education for an affordable price. We have many ways to help you pay for school. From grants to scholarships to financial aid and more, we can help you find ways to pay for your education.
