Student & Graduate Reviews (60)
Going to the UA was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I have met such incredible people, staff and faculty. Originally, I am from Phoenix, so moving to Tucson was a small but huge step in itself. I knew no one going in, so I decided to live at the dorms my freshman year. Dorming was so much fun, I found my best friends, and met and experienced such amazing, diverse, and open minded individuals. As far as curriculum goes, I am a science major, so my first two years were pretty difficult, but the good thing is that every instructor truly cares for their students and wants them to be successful so they provide each student with the help they need. Also, the UA provides a bunch of different programs and services, which are very helpful. Junior and senior year is when I started to get into my upper division courses and started learning about the things that would prepare me for my future career. I found that my class sizes went from 300 (freshman year)-100 people (junior/senior) which was awesome because it gave you the opportunity to interact with the professors on a more personal level. At this point you also start taking the same classes with the same people in your major, so recognizing faces becomes easier. I have made so many friends from my major and its going to be really sad when we graduate and everyone goes their separate way. Over all, I am absolutely obsessed with UA. It feels like a small amazing community. I would 100% recommend to anyone.
The instructors were very helpful and you learn a lot. The issue is with the program that I chose Law and my second program of political science have difficulty finding jobs. When i find jobs they want me to have two years of experience or more which would be a great if I had the time and money to afford to do more of longer unpaid internships. the major requires you to do an internship but the internship that they set you up with do not prepare you for the field as well. The issue is financial unless you have a scholarship that pays for most of the expenses I would suggest this school only for science majors. I should have stayed in the field of science for my major and greatly regret switching my major. I do intend on doing a masters to see if that increases my job opportunity as many employers require a masters degree now. Overall with career services being inexperienced and no help with finding a job and knowledgeably undergraduate academic adviser I would suggest a different school or only attend if you are a science major.
The University of Arizona offers a wide variety of degrees and degree programs. I have been lucky enough to be apart of two of these programs, history and psychology. I have been very pleased with the amount of support I have received from my professors as well as the rigor of the course work. Overall, I feel that I have received a quality education by attending the University of Arizona.
The University of Arizona is a tier one research school (highest level) so it is GREAT if you are interested in a science degree! I was able to work in a research lab and it was an opportunity that allowed me to get into medical school. I will always love this school!
I would highly recommend this university and this program if you are interested in research within Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. The professors are wonderful and they really challenge you to work hard and not slack off in your studies. Campus life is also wonderful as the University has a wide range of clubs and Greek life.
I loved most aspects of this school. Being a science major, the courses were rigorous and tough. Some of the professor were there to help you when you needed it while others could care less. One thing that I think would be more beneficial would be to have more science based tutors in the Think Tank (which is the on-campus tutor center), especially for the upper level courses. Also, more career service opportunities within the science realm would be nice. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed my four years here.
The University of Arizona was an amazing experience for my undergraduate studies. It is a community comprised of many different types of individuals and will encourage you to find your place. As a freshman from out of state, I felt immediately welcomed on campus by so many of the other students in my dorm. Also, the education and guidance that I received truly helped me on my way to medical school this upcoming fall. The only qualm I can think of is that it requires a greater amount of focus than many other schools. Because the University of Arizona is located in an amazing climate with constant sunshine, there is a tendency for a percentage of the student population to perform poorly academically and withdraw. If you are a dedicated student and are self-motivated, the University of Arizona is an incredible, large institution that will help to bolster your education and future career. BEAR DOWN!
The University of Arizona was definitely the college for me. As a kid, I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and always expected to go to Arizona State University, especially since that was where my father went. However, as soon as I stepped foot onto the University of Arizona campus, I knew that I was going to be going to school there. The atmosphere was so fresh and friendly; we took a tour of the entire school and it seemed endless. The campus just seemed like a vast pool of opportunity, adventure, and my future. I could really picture myself there. After 2 years at the U of A, I can definitely say that I chose the right school. My university has provided me many opportunities so I can achieve my career goal of becoming a Dietitian. They have put me on track to learning everything I need to know to prepare me for the next steps of my career path. I am confident that once I complete my last 2 years, I will be ready for the next steps, which is most likely Graduate School at the University of Arizona!
I was a transfer student to the University of Arizona. The guidance that I received at this university was above and beyond anything that I ever expected. My counselor helped determine what courses would transfer over and what courses that I still needed to take. He also assisted with helping me choose a major that would best help me reach my goals of pursuing my graduate degree. In addition to this, the campus gives you a sense of community. It is close-knit and is relatively easy to get around. There is always an event on campus. The intramurals are a great thing to be a part of if you are an active person. The off campus housing is nice for the area. The downtown life is amazing. I have met a majority of my close friends here as well. You will be set up for success if you attend this university. Plus having an amazing basketball program is always a bonus. Bear Down!
I received my undergrad degree in K-12 Special Education with an emphasis in Cross-Categorical teaching. My choice to attend the College of Education at the University of Arizona was based on the quality of education, diversity, flexibility for individuals with full-time careers or families at home, endless opportunities for hands-on learning and overall experience in the field before graduation. The College of Education houses immense intelligence in regards to professors, teaching faculty, teaching assistants and individuals in the community whom work continuously to guide students towards becoming highly effective learners and teachers for their future students and careers. My time in the College of Education at the University of Arizona prepared me with necessary tools, experience and a strong foundation of knowledge in order to make the often intimidating jump into my career with ease and peace of mind. Go Cats!
