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!
Review University of Arizona
The UA is a place for community. It has a spot for anyone. I have never been somewhere that is so inclusive, outspoken, and spirited like this school. Everyday, there is something that students can participate in. The student involvement is one that all of us can take pride in.

The friends I have made living in Tucson are ones that I know I will have for a long time. The sleepless nights of studying (or not studying) really makes the UA special to me. I will never take those relationships for granted, and I have the school to thank for it all!

I became independent, stressed, exhausted, and stronger from my time at the UA. With only one more year there, I will make sure to grasp every opportunity provided. The amount of growth I have had in myself is exceptional, and I am very honored to have selected this school to further my education.
The University of Arizona is an amazing school on a beautiful campus. The entire city is devoted to this school and Wildcat pride is on display accordingly. You get out of the campus and social life what you put into it. It is not necessary to be involved in Greek life to be active on the campus. There are plenty of clubs/groups/people who are involved without being involved in Greek life. The campus and school are family friendly and you will often find generations of Wildcats, still involved with the school in one way or another. If you are attending straight out of high school, my advice is to find a way to get involved and attend study groups, tutoring, dorm activities, etc.. It is easy to get overwhelmed and lost without a good support group. You only get this experience once, make the best of it!
