Sweet off-campus apartment, Alabama!

Sweet School Alabama

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song, Sweet Home Alabama forgot to mention how sweet the University of Alabama in Birmingham is! How could such a quintessential song leave out this state treasure, you ask? That will remain a mystery of the ages. UAB is a great school for those who know exactly what they want to do and are looking to specialize in a field, but it is also great for those who want to experiment with a range of different classes. What UAB is best known for, however, is its stellar medical school and facilities, and the research done within. The school’s mascot is Blaze the Dragon, but maybe it should be Blaze the Dragon Who Wears Scrubs!
