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.

  • UAB Spirit UAB Spirit

    Have you ever painted yourself green in preparation for a game? Have you ever wanted to? Of course you have. Now’s your chance. Or lose the paint and wear a band hat with one of those fuzzy things instead.

  • Athletics Athletics

    Students get in free to all UAB home games—which is awesome, because there are a lot of home games, and you’ll want to see them all.

  • Student Media Student Media

    Get your byline (or your voice) out there, share your views, and make your mark on campus—and beyond campus—with UAB’s active and respected student media.

  • Greek Life Greek Life

    Networking. Leadership. Service. Lifelong friendships. Secret handshakes. (We’re pretty sure about that last one.)

  • University Programs Board University Programs Board

    The UPC puts together a variety of programs including spirit and traditions like Welcome Week, Talent Search, and Springfest; entertainment such as concerts, comedians, and movies; and special events like the Fall Concert and the Miss UAB Scholarship Pageant.
