Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely loved the School of journalism at the University of Arizona. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It's a smaller school with a decent sized faculty team, which I really enjoyed. It allowed me to develop relationships with my professors and my classmates. There was a lot of one-on-one time and I never felt hesitant to ask questions or attend office hours. There are plenty of opportunities to go out in the field and perfect your journalism skills. This includes traveling to cover stories at the border, attending sporting events to learn how to interview and even attending city council meetings to perfect your reporting skills. I'm so proud to have a degree from the U of A! Bear Down!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Arizona's Public Health program is exceptional. It gives you a well-rounded education that will serve you in many areas of your life. The professors I worked with in the program cared deeply about helping the world and ameliorating systematic problems in our healthcare system; many of them have worked abroad and have witnessed these problems first-hand.

Degree: Human Development, Family Studies, and Related Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

This was an amazing program! I learned so much from the professors and although I was not a traditional student, I was accepted without issue. I had originally started as a nutrition major and it was easy to switch my degree. The U of A is a well recognized college and the program has some of the best in the field!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I really loved my education with the University of Arizona. I was able to complete internships that really guided me in knowing what I wanted to do in my career, and it allowed me to make connections that I otherwise wouldn't have. I made lifelong friends through the University of Arizona that I still keep in contact with and will continue to keep in contact with throughout my life. I enjoyed all of my classes and the variety of classes that were available to me as a student there. I was able to switch my major and still graduate on time, which is a major feat in today's education system and allowed me to save money while studying what I actually wanted to study. I would highly recommend attending the University of Arizona, as it will most certainly change your life for the better.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

I liked the University of Arizona because the campus is beautiful and the professors really care about their research and are very supportive of students. Even in my larger classes, I felt that professors were invested in my education and willing to help me with any questions or academic pursuits. Although the school is large, the history program, which I was enrolled in, is very small. I was able to get to know my classmates easily, and I even got an internship my last year through contact with my thesis advisor. The professors are very knowledgeable about what is going on at the school and in the community. I was always encouraged to attend public lectures and community events. The only negative about the school is that, if you are in a larger program, it is difficult to get to know your classmates and professors. The school has a lot of options for extracurricular activities too, with hundreds of clubs and multiple community service organizations to get involved wit.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

The academic environs are fantastic, with highly qualified teachers, but it does have a few things that leave something to be desired. First, if you are an in-state student, don't expect much in the way of financial aid from the school, even if you have a high GPA. If you want to get the distinction of graduating with honors, you also have to graduate from the Honors College, which is an extra $2000 dollars over the course of your education. The Honors College requires so much that it's impossible to graduate from it, if you're a transfer student. You have to be involved in the work study program in order to get a job on campus, and the work study program is only for the lowest of the low income students, so it's impossible to try to make ends meet.

This entire program provided me with many opportunities in life to further enhance my educational goals. I had phenomenal professors and it was evident in their teaching method that they were fluent and learned in their respective fields. I also truly appreciated the flexibility and options to attain my degree.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Attending the University of Arizona is one of the greatest experiences of my life. The teachers were amazing. Each teacher took the time to answer every students question with care and coherence. Every class was filled with discussion or exciting lectures. Every class felt like you had paid for a guest speaker series. Class sizes were far from too big as well. I also found the financial aid office and resources to be top notch. I also had a positive experience when meeting with my academic adviser. I had the same academic adviser throughout my time at the University of Arizona. Having the same adviser each semester allowed for them to learn what type of classes I enjoyed and eventually they started giving me great suggestions for classes to take. My colleagues were great as well. Everyone on campus is very friendly. The friendly culture of the University of Arizona is exactly why I decided to attend the school. I felt at home when I visited the spring before attending in the fall. I would recommend attending the University of Arizona to anyone! It really is an amazing institution. I graduated with Honors and I can assure you I was challenged every step of the way. However, that is what I think a good school should provide; a challenge. You will also fall in love with Tucson. It is a great small college town that will definitely grow on you. The local are great and there is always plenty to do around the campus. Also, you will love the school spirit! By the time you leave, you will definitely be saying: Bear Down!!!!
