Nick's UAH Story
Hi, I’m ...and I’m a UAH student from Pinson, Alabama Nick this is my story... C oming to Huntsville to attend UAH has been the ultimate decision I’ve made in regards to college life and education! From my hometown to UAH is about a two hour drive and I rarely go home. My major is Computer Science and I really became infatuated the course curriculum here at UAH. I am a first year student and I have enjoyed EVERY second of my time here attending UAH. I did that exactly and later attended “Admitted Student Day” and completely fell in LOVE with the campus life. Leaving my hometown was a huge step to take because I left behind family, close friends, and everything that I was used to. I personally wanted to leave my hometown, though, so that I could venture out and see what being in another city is like and I can personally say that it truly has been awesome! Living in on campus has given me the ability to connect with other people that I may have never met if I would have stayed at home! My favorite part of living on campus is sharing a suite with three other people and having my own individual room. Staying on campus has helped me meet tons of people in my own residence hall. I live in CCRH and I liked to play video games in the lobby because I’m able to continue to meet new people who may or may not live in the building. I have gotten pretty involved on campus and it’s been extremely rewarding. I am currently involved in UMMP, ASPIRE, High5Friday, UMMP Mentor, and LEAP Mentor. UAH has so many organizations to choose from so that you can get involved on campus and “find your place” on campus.
