The University of Arizona has many hidden corners and opportunities for those who seek to find them. There are dozens of resources for students to learn and make their education their own. I believe the University is making steps to help students acclimate to college by starting programs to support the student body. There are hundreds of classes to choose from, which makes it easy to tailor make your education based upon your personal goals and interests. There are always exciting events taking place on campus, and plenty of opportunities to connect with other students from all backgrounds. I would recommend the University of Arizona to anyone!

My favorite program is the Writing Skills Improvement Program. Every other week I meet for free with a Professor for 50min to check my writing. I can ask questions about grammar and writing style. It also forces me to write on a regular basis. What a wonderful program!

I love the farmer’s market that comes every week on campus. It is very diversified. You can get a good lunch, or buy homemade prickly pear jam (my favorite), or get small accessories made by local artists.

I also use the online chat service of the library. Whether I need access to a Journal database, a newspaper, or I am looking for a software, librarians are always helpful!

These really improved my experience on campus!
The University of Arizona is a hidden treasure in the world of colleges. As one of the top research universities in the nation, U of A values a very well rounded and solid education as well as make college as fun and enjoyable as possible. The University of Arizona has a way of making you feel like you are home and making a huge university feel small and intimate. There are so many ways to make connections with other students and meet new friends. My class sizes have never been more that 30 people. U of A is committed to making sure students have fun with such things as block parties, tailgates, spring fling, and more.nIn the classes, I always feel challenged, but I never feel as though the professors don't care about me and my success. I never feel like I can't get the help I need. I would say one thing I would want to change about the U of A is updating some of the facilities. There really isn't much else I would change. I love my college and I know that everyone else would too!
