Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2019
"Arizona's business school, Eller, is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are invested in the students success in their classes and outside of the classes. Eller prides itself on catering hundreds of internship opportunities for each degree within Eller. They foster relationships with the top businesses around the world and hold career fairs to allow students to meet companies. Students can expect to be challenged and pushed every semester."

AAdams - 6/28/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
"The University of Arizona is a great school to attend. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Biology and I am pretty pleased. There is a great sports program if you are interesting in participating or just observing. There are also numerous clubs. There is a wide variety ranging from religious clubs all the way to academic major based clubs. There is also a huge assortment of Greek life. I personally am not someone who was into Greek life so it was slightly annoying that they caused the university to get a "party school" reputation. The teachers were relatively fair. As with any school there are teachers that may not be the best, but overall the teachers were pretty good. There are some core science classes that I had issues with. For example, the program makes classes like Chemistry or Physiology that all science majors have to take extremely difficult to pass. This causes many students to lose confidence in themselves and even switch majors due to these "weed-out" classes. Some of the positive aspects of U of A is the great amenities. They have a great recreation center which features an amazing gym, outdoor swimming pools, and sports courts like racquetball. There are beautiful dorms which house a big number of the students on campus. They also have a ton of different options for food like Chick-fil-a, an amazing burrito place and a great ice cream shop! As with any university, there will be aspects that students do not like, but overall the University of Arizona is a great school."

Ciara Karsten - 6/27/2019
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"The last two years of this program are intense. It is a cohort model. Students are in cohorts of about 24 people off university campus in a real elementary or middle school setting. During this time you are expected to maintain an internship at a school and take classes about instruction. Most of these classes were useful in my future career (i.e. teaching social studies for social justice and curriculum and assessment) but some were not like P.E. and art (you don't become certified to teach these classes through the program). It felt like more than 18 credit hours of work, but I did feel prepared to teach my students."

Kelsea - 6/25/2019
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2008
"The anthropology department at the University of Arizona was excellent. It offered a broad-based educational program with classes from several branches of anthropology, including culture, archaeology, linguistics, and human evolution. The classes were mostly small and provided a great deal of opportunity for discussion. I was also able to complete an internship with the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology which gave me great experience doing cultural research with local Somali refugees. Overall it was a high-quality program and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in anthropology as a career."

Degree:
Graduation Year: 2012
"I enjoyed my time at the University of Arizona and liked the wide range of courses offered. I was able to complete two degrees in just three and a half years. Most of the professors were very experienced in the criminal justice and psychology classes that I took. Many of them had actually worked in the field before teaching which gave them more merit. One thing that I wish I had known earlier in my college career was to apply for scholarships within your school/degree."

Anna S. - 6/15/2019
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2007
"The University of Arizona was a very pleasant school to attend. An oasis in the middle of the barren desert, it provided excelent facilities including housing, recreation, and a wide variety of dining opportunities for all budgets and diets. The University employees were always helpful and took student safety seriously. There was an atmosphere of open-mindedness and inclusiveness. I was also pleased to be able to find part-time employment opportunities to help fund my stay there. I only wish I had chosen a more useful major, but they cannot be faulted for that."

Danielle Fork - 5/31/2019
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."

Angela Harris - 4/24/2019
Degree: Human Services
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."
