The University of Arizona is an amazing opportunity that a lot of people can overlook. This institution has world-class professors and equipment in fields such as engineering, astrology, optics, and more. The strong athletic programs at the U fo A also bolster the school spirit and makes it easy to get fired up at sporting events with your schoolmate. As a student, you also have the best opportunity to mingle and network with industry professionals throughout the school year. Companies consistently send representative directly to the school for seminars and job fairs with the sole purpose of finding a college student to potentially employ. Having the chance to land an internship or even get a job offer at the U of A can often be a simple as showing up to a school event! To summarize, the University of Arizona is an amazing opportunity for anyone looking to get a world-class education in an environment where employers often come directly to you.

I think this is a really really cool university. U of AZ campus is a hodge-podge, so set your Google Maps Directions on ‘walk’ and hold your screen in front of you like a compass. Great resource for civilians seeking culture and enlightenment, but right now you have the unique, completely unique, totally unique opportunity to visit the mirror lab! Campus is a never-ending source of entertainment, galleries, science events, museums, seminars, with community events on campus and at Fox Tucson Theatre (some sponsored by U of A Hanson Film Institute), near Loft Cinema, and other off-campus venues. Campus Arboretum is a forest of shade on those rare warm Tucson days!
I graduated early from U of A last December and it was the greatest decision I ever made. My advisors worked with me to be able to get out as quickly as possible to save money on the expensive tuition. The experiences (academic, athletic, city of Tucson, etc.) I gained while attending this university are priceless and I wouldn't want it any other way. From there, I applied to several top-notch graduate schools (including U of A) and I got into all of them, which I attribute to the excellent academic and personal educations I received at this school.

Also, I think it's important to note that when I travel to academic and professional conferences as a grad student, many people are impressed with my U of A background and choose to speak to me over students from other schools. Obviously, U of A isn't for everybody. There is no university that is perfect for everybody. But, U of A is really great and you should at least consider it! I love Tucson and bear down Arizona!
