I joined UAB because I wanted to find an organization on campus that made a big impact in student's lives that was also flexible with my schedule where I could also find a group of people to be friends with. I wanted to be doing something that I enjoyed doing while being able to meet people and make a difference for my fellow Spartans. UAB was a great choice not only because flexibility is one of their core values, but the organization is filled with amazing people, and it was free to join. I am happy to say that UAB has exceeded my expectations and not only have I made friends, I have found my family.
