The University of Arizona has the most heart-warming atmosphere, with a true university experience. Furthermore, the campus is well maintained, providing students with a clean and healthy environment. The University of Arizona offers endless resources to guide students along their academic journey, as well as a vast variety of delicious food options to meet the needs of each student. The Greek Life is outstanding, as well as the countless clubs and organizations held on campus. Overall, transitioning into college could not have been easier than my experience at the University of Arizona! Bear Down!
Unlike any other college in the country. Tucson is a unique and special place with incredible food and a vibrant culture. You'll be hard pressed to find any better climate - even the summers are bearable with monsoon season. The UA's academics are top-notch but often get an unwarranted bad-rep due to high acceptance rates. With plenty of scholarship resources, the high-quality education you will receive here comes at a great value/ROI. There are solid diversity within the student body, and the beautiful campus is a place to meet peers from across the world. Bear down!
I love how the University of Arizona really strives to get students involved within the community, being on campus or off. The university offers several events for students in order to make their stay more enjoyable and overall fun. There is a lot of school pride and the tailgates are a blast. The downside is that the greek life is very exclusive and can be harder to make friends for the more quiet students at first if you choose to opt out. As regards to academics, the classes are very interesting but I seemed to struggle a lot with the chemistry department as some professors are not very approachable and the classes were ridiculously difficult. Overall, it has been a great and fun experience!
