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!

I have loved attending the University of Arizona and experiencing all it has to offer, from its various clubs and opportunities to its everyday vibrant campus life. There is almost constantly something happening on the mall each day, and we even have a farmer's market weekly! The only thing I have struggled with is some of the department structures and some professors. Although this can be a major setback and possibly reasoning to change the structure of some classes and departments, it should still motivate you as a student to put in the extra work and perform better than the averages! This campus does excellent work in providing outside resources and free tutoring, and when you have the time and the drive, you can get a lot out of your social and academic experience here.
The University of Arizona is an excellent choice of college, there are clubs for all, greek life, and the atmosphere is unlike anything else. Tucson is surrounded by mountains and makes it feel as if its in its own little world. A place that thrives on school spirit, there is nothing like Wildcat fans. Academics are important and advisers/tutors are always willing and happy to help. When I was in the process of enrolling to Arizona, the enrollment office was always so helpful. Calling me to make sure I had set up my in-person campus tour and emailing me making sure I was on track to a successful enrollment, which had proven to be very helpful to someone like me, being very prone to procrastination. In addition, being a major 'foodie', Tucson has the best food, and for reasonable prices. It's a great place to go to college and you will not regret it!
