I can't go anywhere without knowing someone – students, faculty, and administrators alike. That's probably what makes it feel so much like home.

Why UAH?

I love the sense of community at UAH. I give tours for the Office of Admissions, and every day at least five or six people stop to tell me "hi" while I am on tour.

Favorite Thing About Huntsville

I love the "big localness." Huntsville is a rapidly growing city, so it is kind of large. However, it is a community that supports small and local businesses. Places like Lowe Mill and Downtown Huntsville are hubs for these local businesses. My personal favorites are Alchemy Lounge for coffee and Humphrey's for some of the best burgers I've eaten.

Advice for Admitted Students

Get involved. It is so important to have hobbies and other passions to balance out your academics. It will also make the transition to UAH much smoother.
