What would I suggest to students interested in learning more about UAHuntsville?
I would suggest to students interested in UAH to explore our website to learn more about our academic programs, catch a glimpse of campus life and see how student focused UAH is through the services of our Student Success Center. Next, I would suggest contacting your Admission Counselor informing him/her of your interest, plan a campus visit to check out our beautiful campus and all it has to offer, and lastly speak with your high school counselor to learn what they know of UAH and how it fits for you as a student. In doing all of this you are helping yourself in knowing how UAH will be a great fit for you and how UAH can help you reach all of your academic and career goals.
What is your favorite thing about UAHuntsville?
My favorite thing about UAHuntsville is the VALUE. UAH’s midsized student population affords students many advantages other larger universities are not able offer undergraduate students. Some of these advantages are the career preparing opportunities available to undergraduate students with access to internships and cooperative education in one of the US’s technologically rich cities of Huntsville, Alabama. Keep in mind UAH’s offerings go well beyond just Engineering and Science and into the Liberal Arts, Business Administration, and Nursing. The city of Huntsville being not only technologically rich but culturally rich as well provides a global view that enriches our student body and provides more for our academic programs.
