The University of Phoenix offers a variety of resources from career driven to course driven. The career services help students and alumni assist with interview skills, resume writing, searchable salary comparisons for each state, and much more. Course driven resources, such as Writing for Excellence that assists each student with writing papers and research skills, is a helpful resource for students who need the help or just a refresher on old skills necessary for each course. The staff is available for any question a student or alumni may have. Group assignments allow students to generate great working relationships with others. I have developed a great bond with my group members, and we continue contacting and assisting one another with other class assignments. I am a mother and full time employee, and I am proud to be a University of Phoenix student.

The academics are current and the classes are good. It is the interaction between advisors and students that is failing. Once we start, communication is almost nonexistent. Curriculum or classes can change, and your advisor does not inform you. You just find it out on your own, looking at the schedule online or asking your previous instructor to find out for you. Communication is key. Without communication with our advisors, we are almost lost. It would be nice if they could help us apply for scholarships as well, to aid us in the financial needs for school. The lack of communication is the most disappointing.

The demographics at the Memphis Campus are mostly african american, with few caucasian, asian, hispanic or other groups. Most of the students get along well, and are accepting of different age groups and backgrounds. There is a lot of disparity in economic conditions, as evidenced by grants to persons with children versus single adults. It appears a lot of the students enroll in school to get grant money, and drop out early after about 6 months of instruction. Overall, the student body is mostly in their 20s or 30s, with a few of us older ones here and there.
