UAB changed everything for me.
I always knew my career path wouldn’t be the same as other people.
With faculty help, I was networking at conferences and even taking a business class when it interested me.

If you’re a student who has an idea to start a business, the Collat School of Business wants to help you do that.
It truly is learning in the 21st century.
My UAB days, without question, helped me realize my passion, which is helping others.

It was truly a great experience to get in an actual clinical setting as an undergraduate student.
I don’t know of any other university that gets its students such innovative opportunities so early on in their careers.
UAB is doing that for us.
Birmingham is a cool town.
Collaboration between UAB and area companies opened the door for me to work at a Fortune 500 company during much of my undergraduate experience.
I wouldn’t have had this research opportunity and mentorship anywhere else.
Between research and teaching, I have grown professionally at UAB.
I feel really prepared to go to medical school.
As an art student and fellow with UAB Digital Media, UAB has opened my eyes to all the opportunities here in Birmingham by exposing me to actual client work, which has helped prepare me for the real world.
