Experience Collat School of Business!
Birmingham's Random Logic Games is a startup founded by UAB Collat School of Business alumnus Andrew Stone and his business partner, Nick Sloan. Random Logic, which launched in 2012, is a quiet force in a booming industry. Its games have been downloaded more than 25 million times to iPhones, Android tablets and a host of other mobile devices around the world. The company’s Facebook page has more than 1 million likes. To meet the growing demands of success, the company is hiring another UAB graduate who interned at the company and considers it to be "a local treasure".
Blount County parents Woodrow and Margie Franks will watch the youngest of their six sons — who have all attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham — graduate this weekend. Each of the six Franks brothers has received an undergraduate degree from the university, spanning nearly two decades of studying at the campus.
