I love the fact that the University of Arizona offers so many different opportunities. One semester in, I was already able to network with professors and help them with research, as well as formulate my own research proposal. All of the professors I had the pleasure to work with were incredibly supportive, helpful, and encouraging. In addition to excellent scholastic opportunities, the UofA also has a diverse student pool with plenty of opportunities to make new friends, socialize, and have the quintessential "college experience."

In terms of safety, there have been a few frightening situations on campus this semester, but campus PD was able to address and deescalate them. Additionally, the administration is really transparent with students about these problems and updates us as situations progress, which really makes it seem like they genuinely care about student safety.

Overall, I love being a student at the U of A. Bear down!

So far being an out of state student and knowing a absolutely no one coming into thins year I can say that this campus had done a great effort to making me feel right at home. With the terrific school spirit, clubs and organizations, greek life, and academics I have been given all the resources needed to feel right at home! The campus is beautiful and the facilities are outstanding from the two story recreation center with an olympic swimming pool and endless equipment to choose from, to the massive basketball and football stadiums packed to the nosebleeds, this campus makes anyone and everyone feel the wildcat pride every step you take.
I have had an exceptional experience with the University of Arizona. My professors are excited and passionate in the fields they teach, which makes learning easier. There are so many opportunities with ThinkTank and SI Sessions to help fill the gaps you have with understanding your classes. Similarly there are so many clubs and opportunities to do fun things, explore new opportunities, and meet new friends. The athletics are diverse and fun to attend all the different sports. The campus is beautiful, very friendly, and easy to manage!
