UAH is a very attractive option for those interested in pursuing an engineering career field. They are incredibly flexible and provide far more opportunities for internships and co-ops than other schools. Beyond that, they have very high-level engineering clubs, most notably the space hardware club, which among other things are designing and building small payload missions, high altitude balloon research missions, and both solid and liquid state rockets. For a cherry on top, all of the dorms are single rooms with a shared living room, so while you'll have roommates, they won't be in the literal same room as you.
The food is good for college fare, but the availability times can be frustrating. Also, I wouldn't recommend it as a party school.
The location: Huntsville is an amazing city with so much to do and your options for internships are endless.
Social life is not as prevalent because it is an academic-focused school.
Not the most engaging people or activities, somewhat dull. But still overall a pretty good experience.
The dining hall food is a trap.
UAH is the closest known university where I live.
UAH seems like a good university at first, but it ends up being a facade. Most of the professors are great people but do not understand how to teach. The computer science building is straight out of the 80s which is dim and no windows for the classroom that I have gotten. The food is meh at best.
Though Covid impacted a lot of what college life used to be, UAH still made it clear that they cared about their students and staff!
The Financial Aid office hasn't always been helpful or clear in its instructions.
