University of Arizona Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (59)
The UofA is an all around school for both undergraduate and graduate students. Tucson has a lot to offer both on campus and off.
Amazing campus. Palm trees and beautiful buildings. The "mall" that runs through the middle is kinda the center of things and a great spot for pickup games and just getting a tan. There's so many top-tier programs at U of A, it's a hard education to beat. Not to mention the great culture surrounding all the clubs and teams. There's a huge amount of school pride and the student body really comes out to show it. Tucson really is a great college town, and you feel like you're at the center of everything while you're there.
Great campus. U of A students, alumni, and Tucson residents are enthusiastic about football and basketball. There seemed to be a good mix of professors who are interested in research and professors interested in teaching.
Great school. Great environment, you won't regret this decision if you come here.
Very interwoven and intensive. I was on a first name basis with all of my professors in my school, I knew almost everyone in my classes because I schooled with them as well as did shows with them. I found my school program more intensive and the expectations higher then when I entered the real world which made me excel and build strong relations both in school and out of it. I worked on 2-4 shows per year on top of being a full time student.
Great experience and helped me grow. School/life balance is incredible. Always something to do on campus.
The University of Arizona has a beautiful campus I enjoyed strolling through and exploring every day. I had many excellent and enlightening instructors and took a number of very engaging classes. I only thing I didn't like was taking NATS classes because I hate science.
As a transfer student, I really struggled with the transition from community college to university life. The quality of instruction, nor the students were all that different, but the process itself was much more complex. Registration at the University of Arizona is absolutely awful. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus. I began in the Sciences and found that although many of the professors were brilliant, they were highly disorganized, making their subjects unnecessarily complicated. I eventually transferred into the Eller College of Management and was thrilled at how helpful they were. They guide you not only through the classes, but through extracurricular activities, honors, the job search, and onward. I was impressed with the consistent responsiveness of the administrative staff. The University of Arizona is a great school overall, but with its large size, I would do my best to know your learning style best you can before arriving so you can navigate through the system with ease.
The problem with the University of Arizona is the sudden and disastrous increase in tuition over the last decade. College was once affordable at the University of Arizona, but it's become increasingly expensive and yet, the actual value of the education has remained steady.
Journalism is mostly a profession you learn about by doing. Having the degree was mostly a credential I needed to make myself "legitimate." Get as many internships under your belt before graduating. Hands on experience is priceless and will get you the job after school.
