My favorite thing about the UAB school of education is the amazing events they put on. Who does not love free food?


What class have you enjoyed the most so far at UAB?
My favorite class so far at UAB was my honors seminar class which was experiencing theatre. While I do not have an interest in theatre, some of the assignments had us go off campus and actually experience theatre, which I thought was cool.

My favorite place to study is the laundry room. I do not know why but whenever I am doing laundry I get twice the amount of work done.


What piece of advice would you give a prospective UAB School of Education student?

What are your plans after you graduate from UAB?

Go to physical therapy school at either at UAB or somewhere else in Alabama and then move somewhere far away from Alabama.
