SOPH New Student Orientation

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION (the event is for all graduate level Public Health students)

Friday, August 23, 2019

8:00 am-1:00 pm


Welcome to the University of Alabama at Birmingham!


Our goal in Orientation is to establish and build a foundation for identity development of our students as thoughtful individuals, growing intellectuals, proud Blazers, and active members of society.  The program promotes discussion among new students, continuing students, and faculty and staff on the expectations and perceptions of the School of Public Health. By attending orientation students will:

  • Gain more knowledge of student support services and the UAB academic experience.
  • Understand the necessity of students taking ownership and academic responsibility in their educational process
  • Begin to embrace UAB's traditions and experience the Public Health and Blazer Family.
