Brian White - 9/26/2014
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013
"Semester at Sea was one of the greatest decisions I will make in my lifetime. The experiences, friendships, and knowledge I encountered on my 1-7 day voyage was remarkable. Ever country we traveled to I learned something new about the world or about myself. It was and will continue to be a life changing experience that I would recommend every make the effort to do. Semester at Sea is expensive, but their scholarships and grants are there for everyone, so if you put in the effort to make it happen, you will never regret it."

JH - 8/11/2014
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013
"The French program is one of the largest in the nation, and they have the number one hydrology program in the nation as of 2014. Half of the classes exist as easy-to-pass classes just so the university can pump out students with degrees, but there are also some challenging majors/courses/professors that actively bring intellect and critical thinking into the system. The Financial Aid office is utterly unorganized and impossible to work with, but that doesn't seem to be unique to this university."

Janet Landry - 8/11/2014
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"My college is the college of science which is most likely the largest college at the University of Arizona. My degree is Psychology and I plan on switching to a double major in Psychology and Neuroscience when I return for the fall semester. Overall, University of Arizona is a great school for those pursuing a degree/ career in science. They have top of the line professors and resources for science classes; my first Biology class taken at U of A was taught by a Nobel prize winner in genetics. Out of all the majors involving science, psychology is the one that is most easily accomplished; hence why I am trying out the double major or possibly switching over to neuroscience in general. The psychology classes offered at U of A are interesting and engaging and taught by personable professors who really do care about your learning. The advisers for the psychology major are attentive and very helpful in guiding students in the right direction. Personally, I've had a fantastic time with this program and would highly recommend this university. The University of Arizona has both it's strengths and weaknesses but for a student pursuing science, it's an excellent option."

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014
"The accounting program at the University of Arizona was a great experience and prepared me for the career ahead of me. The program really gives so many opportunities to be involved with the major as well as hosts job fairs and information sessions to truly understand and gain experience for your future."

Kelsii Dyer - 8/5/2014
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013
"After 5 years in undergrad and a few degrees, I have a well-rounded skill set that allows me to be an optimal choice for any industry. It would be my dream to work in intelligence and analytical for the Federal Government, but I have been prepared to work in both the private and public sectors. Although the school is not in a prominent location for my career path, I was able to learn and study both at the University and abroad with the guidance of intelligent and knowledgeable professors. I am working my way through my Masters degree currently and would not have changed my undergraduate experiences for anything. I am prepared for the "real world" in terms of education and preparation, now I just have to find a government job looking for my broad set of skills."

Valchrista - 8/5/2014
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015
"University of Arizona, like most other colleges, is intimidating upon first glance. However, once you become fully acquainted with your college--Humanities in my case-- and your academic advisors, you'll realize this is one of many great decisions you'll make while attending the U of A. Honestly, I did not believe that I would end up in the College of humanities studying English as I had originally started in the Physiology major; once I became more sure of what I wanted to accomplish during my college career, everything just clicked with English at the forefront of my interests.The professors have one goal in mind and that is making sure every student succeeds in this college; multiple professors even put in extra office hours for the more difficult assignments and exams. Although English is not for every one, the English program at the U of A will make you glad you sought to pursue this field of study and more comfortable with all of its aspects."

"I attended the Eller College of Business and majored in MIS/OM. I would say between all the business courses and the specific major courses you will get an education above others at other business schools. I have been always able to find employment and the UofA's network base is extremely strong."

Matisse Miller - 8/27/2013
Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2010
"It's a huge school, so the experience can't be summed up by any single person. My brother went to the U of A too, but our experiences we drastically different. Nonetheless, we both loved our college experience. I highly recommend Eller College of Management. There is a selective application process to join the college-- you must pass an admissions test and interviews during the second semester of sophomore year. This weeds out students that don't take academics seriously, which is nice because Eller has a lot of group projects."
