What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University of Arizona is a very good academic university if you put your mind to it. You have to avoid the party life if you are in a hard degree and are taking many classes. The campus itself seems to be very safe and on multiple occasions have I been out alone with no issue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Arizona is the complete package. Initially, in high school, I was completely against in-state schools. But, U of A had greek life, an amazing honors college, a great education, perfect location, and many major options. I sincerely love the University of Arizona and I am incredibly elated with my decision.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience since I got here has been very surreal. It's a great place to feel at home and find a place to fit in so it's one less thing to worry about in college. The activities and events held around campus are frequent and fairly well known. The school is rather pricey for the quality of living and food that's on campus. The school is worth it in other ways with useful services like free tutoring, counseling, and the recreational center which is loaded with a lot of activities anytime of the week. This is a dream school that is moderately attainable and spirit and friends never goes away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

FOR ANYONE VISITING OUT OF TOWN This campus makes it very clear visitors are not welcome!!!! I had the unfortunate experience of attending a conference here. I informed the conference sponsors just how horrible this campus is and how no one should attend this campus (it was poorly attended so I can imagine I didn't need to tell them much). I live here in this state, but my children will not be attending this institution. The campus is dirty, overcrowded, and in a dangerous part of town. The conference sponsors were great, however the people working at the campus were not. Navigating the campus is a nightmare, parking is another nightmare. The people that are employed at this campus are untrained, rude and incompetent and made it clear outsiders are not wanted there. I recently attended a meeting at NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY- WONDERFUL SCHOOL!!!! The campus is lovely, the people are friendly and accommodating to both locals and visitors. The professors are some of the best and brightest in their fields. They presented their research as teacher-scholars- no comparison to the U of A who relies on untrained part-timers to teach your children (think about what you are getting for the high cost of tuition). There are much higher quality institutions in this state, for much less!! Small class sizes taught by full-time faculty that know how to teach in a safe part of the state. I'm sure there are other decent schools in this state, but there is no way I would let my child attend UofA ever. As a side note, I work in a STEM field in this state for a company that has employed several grads from UofA to save money. They could not perform the job so out-of-state applicants are relocated at high expense (they are always the better candidate- its unfortunate, but they are better educated, better trained, better workers, and then would invariably leave because Tucson was an awful town and the candidate and their family couldn't stand it here). There's a whole new fresh world out there everyone! Don't be afraid to look elsewhere, even if its up north or out of state- the education is better and it will take you places- trust me!

I truly believe the University of Arizona is an amazing school that provides something for everyone, no matter your interests. The varsity of classes and majors allows for so many career pathways. Your experience comes down to the effort and attitude you choose to put into it. Over all, I believe the University of Arizona is a great school that offers many opportunities in a safe, fun, and positive environment. Also the weather is great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Arizona is a decent school, but sadly is a little more on the party end of the spectrum. It can be hard to form meaningful relationships in the first couple years, because most entertainment that can be found cheap involves drinking or doing drugs at someones house (and since most people are out doing this, if you don't you may have trouble meeting people) Professors are great and available to help students. Most of them are willing to go the extra mile for students in making sure we have the resources we need to be available in their class

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall rating for University of Arizona(UA) is 4 star. The school is great by itself, it has lots of opportunistic for students to study and flourish. But, in my point of view, the town in which the school is located is important too. Tucson, is not a great place to live, nonetheless is too hot. Therefore, students need to consider this fact too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the U of A. It's my home away from home. Everyone is friendly and there are people always willing to help. There are so many clubs to join and the faculty is approachable. The whole school gets into the game day spirit and you can hear the chant "Bear Down!" throughout campus. You'll make lifelong friends here and learn so many valuable lessons, not only in the classroom, but outside it as well. Become a Wildcat if you are looking to not only further your education, but to join a family that will always have your back! Bear Down!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Arizona is by far the best university in the southwest part of the US. The school offers many opportunities for students as well as a variety of different majors. If you are into extracurricular activities, the university offers Greek life, academic clubs, political clubs, pre-professional clubs, and intramural sports. Sports fan? Our basketball team is top notch and participates in March Madness every year. The University of Arizona is the place for everybody.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Arizona is great because it has a lot of events and resources outside of the class. There are many places to go on campus and nearby. The diversity is also really apparent with many different groups and types a people attending. The education is mostly good however there are some notorious departments at the UofA. So if one is thinking of applying, make sure one's major doesn't require taking classes under the notorious departments.
