WHAT I LIKED

A large campus that still feels like you are part of the University of Arizona community. Fantastic resources for students, impressive dining options, and social activities and clubs to join.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It can get pretty hot during the summer months and some of the elective courses may feel sophomoric.

WHAT I LIKED

The online experience is extremely helpful for those with busy schedules

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The classes that you have to take when they have nothing to do with your major seem to be increasingly more difficult than the actual classes you need for your major

WHAT I LIKED

I'll be honest the University of Arizona was not my first choice of school but through a series of coincidences, I decided to apply and got in with a great scholarship. If you're like me you want to go to the school that gives you the best deal. The University of Arizona did that for me. It has a great business program, and its pre-med track is also great. Now that I am here and loving it, I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. It's a big school but its campus is super walkable, and everything is right next to each other. The classes are great and super interesting. If you are a STEM student I recommend looking into the honors college, it's really good and super helpful if you are considering a degree higher than a bachelor's.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Make sure you have a good handle on how your meal plan works before you start using it like crazy. If you have meal swipes they can be used on food anywhere on campus and expire monthly. Dining dollars expire at the end of the year and can be used on food anywhere on campus. CatCash expires at the end of the year and can be used on food, laundry, the book store, and many off-campus places that will take CatCash as payment. Other than that the weather is super nice but expect it to feel way too hot for the first 2-3 weeks before it starts feeling nice out.

WHAT I LIKED

While I am still attending UofA, I have so far enjoyed my experience. There are so many people and things to do here that you will always find someone or something to stick to. Greek life is very predominant but it's not a must to make friends.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While there's a good amount of options for food, it can quickly become repetitive as it is all fast food. The large student amounts of students here can also be somewhat intimidating if you're rather reserved.
