Take a Tour of UAB’s Campus! // UAB Virtual Visit

(Music playing) Welcome to the University of Alabama at
Birmingham, I’m one of the Trailblazers here. We’re gonna take you all around
campus and show you why we love being Blazers, so let’s go (Music playing) Our first stop of the tour is the Hill
Student Center. You’re gonna spend a lot of time here. It’s a great meeting space
for student groups. You can find various offices in here such as the Career
Center, Tech Connect and One-Stop where you can get any of your questions
answered. And my favorite thing to do at the Hill Center is to grab a bite to eat
at one of our dining spots and don’t forget to visit our campus bookstore for
some UAB gear. (Music playing) This is our UniversityRecreation Center and right now I’m
standing on our running track where you can get a good run in with beautiful
views of the Campus Green. We have two floors of free weights and workout
machines as well as our cardio row with bikes, treadmills and ellipticals. We have
a two-story rock-climbing wall as well as our Aquatic Center that has lap lanes
a hot tub and a vortex pool. There are also four full-size basketball courts as
well as an indoor soccer court. For my sports people out there we have plenty
of intramural and club sport options just for you. If you’re just wanting to
take a chill day kind of hang out check out our Dragon’s Den with video games,
pool, ping-pong and air hockey (Music playing) Hey y’all I’m standing here in front of
one of our newest residence halls here on campus open to first time freshman.
I actually lived here my freshman year and I loved it Inside the rooms have private
showers and mini-fridges and microwaves, the building itself has great facilities and
you can actually do your laundry here without leaving the building. There are
community spaces on every floor and while you’re hanging out or studying you
have great views of campus and Birmingham. (Music playing) This is the Collat School of Business. This building was designed with input from UAB students and the
Birmingham community. Collat has some awesome features like a tutoring lab,
career center and group and individual study rooms which my friends and I use a
lot. There’s also a high tech finance lab which is home to our Green and Gold Fund, UAB’s student manage investment portfolio And don’t forget to give blaze a fist
bump on your way out. (Music playing) This is our Campus Green where a lot of our student life
events and activities happen. I love having a giant green space to go to in
the middle of an urban campus. You’ll see plenty of students around here playing
frisbee, soccer, laying in a hammock on a blanket studying and enjoying the fresh
air. The best part about the Green is that it’s super close to all of our
residence halls and academic buildings. Plus it’s all Wi-Fi accessible. The Green
is also close to our Blazer Express stops and if you’re studying
late at night the on-demand shuttle is just a phone call away. So if you’re looking
for something fun to do come by the Green and see what events are going on. And don’t forget to grab a picture with Blaze! (Music playing) UAB is located in Birmingham, Alabama’s
largest city. We have miles of walking trails, green spaces and parks. The city
really is our classroom. Students have lots of opportunities for research,
internships and volunteering. Birmingham has a great arts and music scene. It’s
also a foodie city that has everything from five-star restaurants to amazing
food trucks. You can find me at any one of our unique coffee shops. There’s
always something fun to do in Birmingham Whatever you’re looking for you can find
right here at UAB. Come see for yourself and take a campus tour. Go Blazers! (Music playing)
