So far my experience at UAT has been wonderful. All the staff and even the higher level students are all very willing to help the newer students both with functioning as a on campus student and in the academia portion of life on campus. There's groups to fit everybody's taste and if there isn't a club it can be very easy to make one. The school is a bastion for technologyand anyone who is nerdy enough for their fields of study are well taken care of with everything they need to succeed. The campus itself is open 24/7 so if you need to get something done late at night or super early in the morning; you have full access to the facilities you need. The dorms are well kept. They take safety very seriously here as well, being such a small campus of 300 students and centered in the middle of the Phoenix/Tempe metropolis; and have security around the clock to male everyone feel safe.

I'm currently a freshmen (online student) majoring in game art and animation, in my second course now. I can say without a doubt that I absolutely love UAT! First of all, the admissions process went fairly smooth, and any issues were quickly taken care of. UAT staff was very helpful with understanding financial information as well. I learned so much from my classes so far, not only that, but they're fun too. I don't think I can name one bad experience so far, even a small one. It also continues to offer help to alumni after they get their degree, so definitely worth the money.
(I am currently a senior in high school; however, I am currently enrolled for the fall of 2017 and have toured the campus.) Only 450-500 students are on campus. The professors have actual experience in the field they are teaching and care about the students' education. If you are considering going into technology, I suggest you look into UAT. They have several clubs that the students can participate in. The on-campus cafe is good and reasonable. The dorms have a theater room, game room, two pool tables, one ping pong table, three vending machines, a kitchen, a laundry room, a fitness room, a quiet room on each floor, and there is a grilling area outside. All of these are free to use (except the laundry room; if I remember correctly it is only 25 cents per load) if you are a student who lives in the dorms. Everyone I spoke with was really nice and willing to answer any questions I had.
