Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The University of Arizona is a school that attracts and is the right school for every kind of person no matter you age, gender, race, etc and I am very happy that I am down here in Tucson.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There is so much advice that can be givin to both parents and/or students looking for the right college. So, my first piece of advise for anyone would be to look at themself and find what the phrase "right college" means to them. For some the right college will be a very small school with small classes, but for others a big school with big classes would be just as good. Every school you go to will be different and will attract different people. So with that in mind I think the best advise to give someone is to just find the school that fits into their view of the right school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The University of Arizona is the right school for any person and I think that every single person should come the the U of A because it is the best school in the Nation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't be afraid. There are so many things people tend to miss out on when they are afraid. Don't be afraid of applying because of the thought of rejection. Don't be afraid to do things you wouldn't normally do. Don't be afraid to say no or go for what you really want. College is not just about learning for a future career or whatnot, it's also about learning and improving your self.

The University of Arizona is a huge place with so many academic pathways to choose from that it can become rather confusing.

Describe the students at your school.

Generally, my classmates are financially well-off, intelligent, focused, trendy, involved, fun-loving, sarcastic, fit, and outspoken.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When trying to find the right college, first evaluate what the student enjoyed most about his/her classes in high school. Was it the class size, creative learning opportunities, outreach to the community, etc? Then think about what he/she did not like or can do without in a college. For example, if he/she did not enjoy or participate in sports, keep in mind that a great school for that student may not necessarily be famous for its athletic department. That will be enough to narrow the choices down to a type of school. After that is done, figure in ambition. Does the student have a major already picked out, or does he/she need a school with many different options? Once that is decided, it will be easy to choose a school based on distance from home and financial affordability. After a school is chosen, it is important to take your student's every need into consideration. Make sure tutoring is available and made known to the student. I suggest taking extracurricular activities one club/organization at a time; too many and the activities will begin to take precedence over the education.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

research is essential. i didn't do any research about what i wanted in a college or a community. i've felt very lost and confused about myself as well as what i want in life due to my choice of university. support from parents despite possibly not agreeing about a child's choice in education is essential. the more support the stronger the student is. the stronger the student is the better they will do in college. support is the key to education.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Get involved and meet other students that you can relate to. In order to be a successful student, diligence and determination is a must. Go to a school that has multiple majors that interest you because most students change their major at least once before graduating. Also, it is so important to go to a school that excites you. Choose a university that you have pride in because your college experiences will stick with you for the rest of your life. Open up to others and make friends with the students you have class with. Having a cohesive study group helps because you can relate to one another and not feel alone when the nerves kick in. Do something you love; don't settle for a career path that you aren't enthusiastic about!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Students who are seeking a small, intimate college experience should not attend this school. Also, sports are a huge attraction, so students who don't love attending sporting events are out of place. Anyone who doesn't like warm weather or windy weather should go somewhere else.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a school that is affordable and contributes to the human collective. Try to avoid loans and find scholarships by first submiiting the FAFSA by the school's deadline, and then searching sources such as online. Be persistant and not affraid to ask questions and talk to people face to face.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wishes to attend a school that is affordable and partake in a desert lifestlye. What other school has launched a sucessful mission to Mars?

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I would give to parents and students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience would have to be to find a college that you feel comfortable in with a good atomosphere and friendly staff that answer any questions you have about the college clearly. For students I reccommend, from personal experience, not to overload yourself with more classes than you need your frist semester of college.

What's unique about your campus?

There are so many classes available and even if you don't get into the class when you register, most teachers are nice enough to add you to the roster.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Walking from one class on one side of campus to a class on the opposite end in 100+ temperatures.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arizona is a large university, and obviously with so many students people are bound to be lost in the cracks. However I feel that the University does a TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE job at seeing students as individuals rather than a source of income.

Describe the students at your school.

I feel that the student body as a whole is pretty accepting and non-discriminatory. However, money is flaunted by the students.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Everyone is rich, jewish, and does cocaine.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about U of A is that we all have such great school spirit. Everyone goes to Bear Down Fridays, wears red to football games and basketball games and its always packed. U of A is just the right size, its not too big or too small. When people hear that I go to U of A they dont take students seriously because they think U of A is a party school

Describe the students at your school.

On campus students constantly get lectured to by religious groups on teh mall or religious people asking questions about our faith. U of A is pretty diverse although most races tend to stick with each other. most students wear summer or spring outfits and the occasional sweater because its basically spring and summer year round. the four tables are african amercans and athletic students, asians, hispanics, and caucasians.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

We party too much- were a party school Were not smart We have good sports teams We have an amazing Greek life

What are the academics like at your school?

Professors do learn students names and they are very personable. they are very encouraging when it coems to coming in for office hours. my favorite class is spanish and my least favorite class is biology. studying depends on the students grade ad major. freshman dont tend to study as much as seniors do. students are competetive. the most unique class ive taken is music through experience. we play the guitar and recorder

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

all of them are true except for the fact that were not smart. There are a lot of intelligent students here on campus

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

the mose popular organizations are Greek life, PAIN, and the honorary societies (Primus, Sophos, Chain Gang, and Wildcat ....) the most popular teams are mens football and mens basketball. Im in Chi Omega and Primus. in most dorms students leave their doors open, in Pueblo de la cienega, VDP, and Posada San Pedro, students dont. athletic events are very popular. i met my closest friends through chi omega. if im awake at 2 am on a tuesday im probably doing homework and occasionally im out at some frat. in the beginning of the year (if your a freshman) people party almost every night. in the middle of the year to the end, people party thursday, friday, saturday.
