Letter from the Editor
Kaleidoscope is proud to finally release our Best of UAB issue for Family Weekend.
The winners for this issue were voted on before the COVID-19 pandemic, but they’re still relevant to how UAB students live their lives after all this time. Students continue to live, shop, eat and hang out all over Birmingham.
Hopefully this can help you find something new to check out on or near campus, especially students that haven’t been able to experience a “normal” year at UAB. Maybe those of you that have been around will just be happy to see your favorites in here.
I’m excited for us to truly be back on campus and for everyone to get to experience the best parts of UAB, from the professors, to the food, to the shopping. This issue couldn’t have been possible without the help of UAB students who voted for their favorites.
This issue might even help you find even more ways to spend Family Weekend by exploring the city and trying some of the best things Birmingham has to offer. Make sure to grab some food from MELT, voted Best Place to Take Your Parents, and head to the game to cheer on the UAB Blazers.
Inside this issue you can also find Aura Literary Arts Magazine’s Spring 2021 issue full of art submitted by UAB students and others from Birmingham and across the Southeast.
Thank you to all the students and families who pick up this magazine and enjoy your weekend!
