5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Arizona provides a unique experiences where the school takes pride into adding onto that experience.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There's people from literally all over the world. It's amazing!

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They're really strict on drinking inside of the dorms. If an RA catches you consequences will happen. Some get kicked out of the dorms.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is soo relaxed and nice. It feels great being outside.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There's a lot of attractive people on campus. Although many girls push it when it comes to their clothing an wear too small dresses and shorts.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Pricing to get a permit to park in the garage is soo expensive! I find spaces around campus and lots that charge less.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Food on campus is pretty expensive, especially if you have to buy all of your meals there. There aren't really any student discounts available on campus.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm not a big person on going out, so I enjoy my nights hanging out with friends and watching movies.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We are ranked top in the nation for our school spirit! Everyone on campus just has a sense of pride for our school and always show it on campus, events, and sports.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: I live in Tucson and I have a car so transportation is fairly easy for me. I have heard that the new trolly is great though!

4 College Freshman

Majors: Since it is my first year I have not been able to explore my program too much, but when weeing the courses that will soon be available to me, it is interesting and exciting.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have found a great internship that will serve as a great opportunity for me. I can apply until next year, which I will soo be doing!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When walking alone on campus I do feel scared at times. Not because I'm on campus but this is the typical reaction I would feel anywhere walking alone at night to my car.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The University does a great job on getting you your financial aid. When you do your fafsa the UofA gets notified and helps you get the needed money still remaining.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's great having sunny days most of your days on campus although closer to the spring and summer the temperatures get really high.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Having a deep interest in your major, definitely contributes to the like in your courses. Although there are limited internships in my field of interest the few that are available are amazing, first hand experiences.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is great! You don't have to worry about rules and you have much more freedom. Yet you can still be involved in school activities on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The atmosphere created by the Greek life is definitely a party scene. They are the ones who always have a party going, especially the frats. They advocate for the party scene amongst them.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The library it self always has computers available for students. They are always working and run great on the internet. If you take your own computer you can connect to the school wifi which also runs good.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking alcohol is pretty "normal" on campus, especially in frats and sororities. You always hear them talking about the party the previous night and how everyone got drunk or how they want to become drunk.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's kind of a bummer that my merit-based scholarship stayed the same when tuition went up

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Um Arizona basketball GO WILDCATS #beardown #eliteeight

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Right now I live on campus but I had no problem finding a house for next year

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: University Blvd is a nice mix of chains like Chipotle and unique spots

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I use my own computer on campus but sometimes UAWifi is finicky

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.
