3 College Senior

Diversity: Because of the diversified student population, most people are accepted.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Due to the small size of the school and the visual presence of security, I feel completely safe here.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: The scholarship process is a joke. I've submitted more than 40 applications, throughout my college career, and received nothing for my efforts.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: There is no housing available on my campus.

3 College Senior

Majors: My program is preparing me well for my chosen career.

3 College Senior

Majors: Haven't had an internship and do not plan to.

4 College Senior

Computers: There are a lot of computers available for student use and the wireless network is great!

2 College Senior

Transportation: Nothing, other than public transportation, is offered.

2 College Senior

Nightlife: There isn't a nightlife at this school. It's a satellite branch of a major university, therefore, it's closed by 5 pm.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school is strict on academic integrity. In terms of social lives, it's pretty open as long as it doesn't harm anyone or discriminate.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There's a difference in quality depending on which dormitory you get assigned to. But it's an easy way to meet people and get involved with certain activities.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: there are plenty of houses or apartments for rent nearby, as well as student housing (that provides shuttles to campus, etc), but some are quite costly for their size.

4 College Junior

Majors: The Political Science major is great and has several concentrations and opportunities for its students. They also have plenty of internships for future career options, and try to help with credit transfers.

4 College Junior

Majors: When I switched majors into my current major, I was fortunate enough to have all of my credits count towards my major requirements even though they're somewhat unrelated. The advisor was really nice and helpful when transferring credits and planning my graduation plan.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are a big aspect of UA. Sporting events are huge, and school spirit is awesome. Sometimes the mascots will just roam around campus for fun. The rec center is really well-kept and well-equipped.

3 College Junior

Transportation: For the most part, students living on campus can walk to certain destinations. However, it's hard if they want to travel to places off campus for food or shopping. Usually, they can find a friend to help give them a ride.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The school has a variety of people of all diverse backgrounds. Students are typically accepting of all, regardless of affiliation. The school has several groups pertaining to diverse groups as well. The only issue is people such as Brother Dean, who prefers to condemn students for certain things.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Students typically dress the same, especially if they're involved in Greek life. You'll see a lot of students repping their Greek letters on their gear. Students usually stick to their own groups, and Greek life is a major player.

3 College Junior

Weather: The best time for weather is towards the beginning of Autumn. In the middle of summer, it gets blistering hot out sometimes, and winter has cold mornings and nights.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's plenty of restaurants outside of campus, and they all hold varieties and different ethnic foods as well. A few of the places offer student discounts or allow students to use their CatCards to pay for the meal.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There's always something to do around campus and in town. Sometimes there are even events hosted on campus, such as concerts, cultural events, product promotions, the Wildcat World Fair, Spring Fling, and sporting events. Most students enjoy these huge events and some of the events are even free to attend.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol is the most abundant substance at this school, especially for parties. I have also know students to take marijuana for recreation, and study drugs for exams. Despite having campus police and organizations that advocate not using those drugs, students still find ways to access them.

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.
