Overall Rating

I enrolled at UAH with a negative mindset. I did not want to attend a college in hometown, Huntsville. I was not looking forward to it nor did I think I was going to enjoy it or make mutual friends with the same interests as me. I was highly proven wrong. I began my journey at UAH with freshman orientation, I was welcomed by sweet, humble people who loved the school. They turned my negativity into a slightly more positive attitude. I was still not convinced until I partook in their WoW which stands for week of welcome. This highly energetic week of free food, games, meet and greets, just made me put myself out there and meet people I thought I would never connect with. For me, the most memorable experiences include going to the sporting events. I love sports taken in account that I am an athlete myself, I think I bond well with people and get to know people a lot at the different sporting events. UAH is a family atmosphere for me with a very home-like feel.

UAHuntsville is a great school. They have a wide array of subjects to study, many degree programs to offer, and all the necessary relationships, connections, and resources to help their students with job placement upon graduation. They also have several different departments, whose specialization is helping you to understand the career path you've chosen, help with important life changing decisions such as: what you want to do with the rest of your life, and helping those whose major is still undecided.
