uab's a joke - 9/23/2015
Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015
"The city is much too busy to have a good college experience. Parking is absolutely atrocious, there's way too much crime, and the school is completely intent on their profit margin. Students' education is far down on the priority list."

"UAB is not a traditional college experience. You don't get the college town feel attending in the middle of the city. Although I have had a great time, I'm ready to get out and go somewhere more personable."

"I transferred to UAB from a community college and it has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. My courses in Public Health have been very in-depth and stimulating. The professors and advisors are extremely helpful - they make time for every student and they have gone above and beyond to guide me in the right direction. I'm very proud to call UAB my university."

"I loved the feel of the college. Although it was a large school I felt as if the facility in my major cared about my success and was interested in helping me succeed within the program. I am not sure that it gave me an accurate depiction of what the job market would be like after graduation, but overall I enjoyed my college experience and Uab was a wonderful place to get a degree from."

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2017
"Great program. Professors are there when you need them. Everything is there when you need it. They offer course tutoring if you need the service. Everything is very organized. If you know how to manage your schedule well, this program is right for you. You are allowed to take 2 classes a semester but are able to add if you feel like you can handle more."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014
"I was fortunate enough to achieve my bachelor's degree in four years. I feel the program for obtaining the communications degree has a lot f room for improvement at UAB. The Film program is up and coming and currently going through changes. The established Communication Studies program and department is going through changes, which affects requirements towards finishing one's degree. I've just graduated so I can't speak on whether going to school and obtaining this degree has helped me find a job, let alone a job in my field of study. I would hope going to university for my future was worth it and will help land a job to start a career in the field I studied for. I don't feel UAB is the absolute best school for the arts, but it's still building. I will say that loans payments start kicking in months after graduation. So I guess we're expected to land a job within six months of graduating so that we can start paying off the loans. I have yet to find a job in my area of study and area of living. Which means I may have to move out of state. But for finding work doing something I love and went to school for, it would be worth it."
