The advisors are wonderful, hands down! They work with you each step of the way and getting an appointment with one is just a click away. As a transfer student, the transition was surprisingly easy. They helped me figure out what classes would transfer over and what they would satisfy. The University of Arizona works very closely with local community colleges. I was able to take and apply almost all my classes and able them to a bachelor’s degree program which leaves me with just 2 years to go from an Associates to Bachelors. I highly recommend the University of Arizona.

I love U of A. The campus is beautiful; all the buildings are centralized around a long grass field. My classes were large, but each class had TAs and opportunities for office hours and study sessions. Outside the classroom, being a part of a PAC 12 school was such a cool experience. Tailgating for football games and cheering on the Wildcats in the March Madness Tournament was thrilling. Tucson is a place I call my second home. People always asked about the heat, but the truth is, it was not bad! Sure, 95 degrees was the average, but during the winter, it actually got quite cold. Even through the heat, U of A accommodated for it, with lots of AC and pools! There are many hidden gems in Tucson. All the food in Tucson is delicious. Anyone that visits has to try a famous Sonoran hot dog. Tucson night life offers fun for everyone! I could go on about my experience with this amazing place, but I can't say anything bad about it-I just love Tucson and the University of Arizona!
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!
