4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most guys stick to chubbies, boat shoes and a fraternity shirt. Most girls where Lululemon leggings, rainbows, Ray-bans and a sorority shirt.

Greek Life: I am not part of the Greek life so I do not know how to rate the Greek life. I am also a non-Greek who does not care much about the Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is spread out everywhere in Tucson, there are some close to campus and some not so close. If you're willing and able to drive 10 minutes, you're going to find higher quality food than those within walking distance from campus. Most places within walking distance from campus are good and easily affordable for one on a college budget.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like always, depending on the effort you put into something, that effort determines the experience. All of the professors I have had at the U of A have been very willing to accommodate special requests and provide extra assistance. It's all about taking advantage of office hours and TA's to get the best experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As an elementary education major, second semester of junior year and all of senior year, I will be student teaching at a local elementary school. With such experience, it is much easier to get a job rather than at a college where you never get any field work. But then again, it varies depending on your major.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: With so many different options, it's easy to find something that matches your criteria. There are many apartment complexes further from school but much cheaper. There are also apartment complexes within walking distance that are a little more expensive. Brand new complexes (Level, The Hub) are much more expensive but are worth the price if you want a very nice apartment.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: While the school may seem generous in giving out scholarships, it is very hard to get a loan. With out of state tuition being nearly 3 times the amount of in state tuition, the scholarship values for out of state kids should be higher. Doing well on your SAT will increase your chances of getting more money from the school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Out of all the schools in Arizona, I 100% believe that UA has the best medical program to offer. My degree will most defiantly be of value.

UA is a great school in a chill city that has nice weather and beautiful, beautiful people. You will become attached to it, and it has a sort of "dirty charm" that you'll unexpectedly miss when you leave. Maybe it will be the way cars splash disgusting street water into your face every time it rains, since there are practically no drainage systems in Tucson, and water just sits in dangerously deep pools along the sides of the road. You might find a midnight home along Fourth Avenue, or perhaps it will be vying for couches to sleep on during class breaks. Despite all of the hard times, the UA will become a place that you’ll always remember—for better or for worse.

You will probably eat so many meals in the Student Union Memorial Center that you will see them in your dreams. You will walk the same sidewalks over and over in both the sunshine and in the rain (but mostly the sunshine). You'll have long talks with friends in parking lots. You may read Émile Zola or Charles Darwin for the first time here, rediscover Faulkner in the Modern Languages Building, or pull an all-nighter in the library. The education has definitely taken a steep fall in recent years, but it's nothing that can't still be fixed with some time and appropriate use of tuition money. Yeah, the UA has its many problems, but students don't come here looking for boring perfection. If you want a half-decent education and an interesting experience, you'll get them both at the UA.
