Emily H - 3/5/2019
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."

Heather Taylor - 2/23/2019
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."

Aaron Pressley - 12/30/2018
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!!!!"

Taylor - 10/29/2018
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2013
"The University of Arizona was a wonderful institution to attend while obtaining my Bachelor's degree. The school is located in Tucson, Arizona and is what you picture when you think of a typical college town. Everyone in the city roots for the Wildcats and their is an overwhelming sense of school spirit and Wildcat pride. Students at UA will have the opportunity to learn from great professors and gain real world experience through extra curricular activities, research positions, jobs, and internships. The faculty go above and beyond to make your experience exactly what you want it to be! Bear down!"

Morganne Shoop - 7/25/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014
"The university of Arizona College of Nursing was everything that I had hoped it would be. The instructors were tough but also incredibly supportive. Furthermore, the instructors at the University of Arizona promoted critical thinking within the clinical setting that prepared myself and my fellow colleagues for successful nursing careers. The professors are extremely dedicated to the success of their students and often times would give up their lunches or stay late to provide additional support to students that asked for it."

TJ - 6/27/2018
Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"The U of A is a beautiful campus with lots of history and great educational programs. Sports are a huge part of the campus but definitely not mandatory to partake in. The veterinary science program in particular is fantastic and has dozens of amazing professors who get involved with your education both in school and out of school. They often volunteer their time on weekends to give hands on assistance to students to help them learn important veterinary concepts."

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of Arizona as a whole is an amazing school. There are lots of opportunities to grow and learn both in and out of the classroom. I had an amazing experience there as a Wildcat. Campus life is fun and school-spirited. Tucson is a college town so there is a lot of support by the public which is fantastic. The College of Education in which I attended was a great experience. My cohort was full of amazing ladies with dreams of becoming Elementary School Teachers. I highly recommend the University of Arizona for your college path."

Master in Marketing Review - 4/2/2018
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018
"The University of Arizona is a great school that provides a good preparation both for employment and grad school. The department of Communication is especially excellent in research and there are many faculty that continuously have research studies going on. It is a perfect start for anyone, but especially for who wants to continue their education as they also offer a Master and an accelerated master for exemplary undergraduate students. I really recommend the department of Communication at the University of Arizona. The only negative experience that I had is with advising. They are not very helpful and sometimes rude. You can just plan everything by yourself as they aren't much of a help."
