Mensagem:  When a University or College is large and has campuses in several cities then the branch is identified. For instance: There is the University of California (main). Then there are The University of California at Berkley, The University of California at San Diego, The University of California at Sacramento, etc. Usually a branch of a university is know for special educational advantage. The UC at San Diego probably has a fantastic Marine Biology program, Berkley is know for Social/Cultural/Political Studies, etc. The branch locations serve the local populace so that students don't have to travel too far to study (many actually live right on the campus) and they tend to serve a distinct clientel. As the branches grow, the laboratories expand, the sports progams improve, teachers of great reknown are attracted and the quality of studies improves. In Alabama there is the University of Alabama in Tuscalusa. It is the original UA. The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a branch and it is know for it's School of Nursing. The University of Alabama at Huntsville is known for it's School of Engineering (space, science, research and so on.....with a very well run program wherein the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Boeing and other companies have links with the school. They fund research programs for students and hire many interns. That's why there is an AT in the name, Tom
