Student & Graduate Reviews

Robert - 3/28/2017
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016
"Overall I would recommend this college to someone. There is a great network of faculty and advisers that work to make you successful in your academics as well as in your future career. I interacted much more with the professors of landscape architecture than the architecture professors but I will say that the landscape architecture professors are awesome. The architecture professors not so much. They do not value you as a student unless you are an architecture student. They will blatantly ignore you and treat you worse. But, the sustainable built environments faculty and the landscape architecture faculty are all incredibly supportive and make the school degree worth pursuing."

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2018
"The University of Arizona has a wonderful Rehabilitation program, I have learned so much in my time here at the UA. My classes were always fun and challenging, always wanting to make me learn more. The teachers I had were wonderful, always knew the material that they were teaching and were there to do more than just lecture. If you are thinking of a career in Special Education or Rehabilitation I would highly recommend the University of Arizona!"

Alexandria Gendreau - 3/27/2017
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2011
"I thoroughly enjoyed my education at the University of Arizona. As a dual major in both Journalism and Theatre Arts, I was able to experience a wide range of teachers, students, and classes. The theatre program at the school is bar none. You are required to work on many projects giving you a great experience in the professional theater world. There I got to collaborate with like minded student and faculty. There was also opportunities for me to do non credited theatre work which I partook in. As a journalism student, the professors helped be establish a solid voice and ethical code in my writing. As a student I also wrote for several newspapers as part of my instruction giving me real world application. I became heavily involved with several clubs on campus including- KAMP Student Radio, Arizona Daily Wildcat, UA Chapter of Vagina Monologues, and University Housing. All of these activities allowed me to interact with fellow students and get experience for later career choices."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020
"The psychology program in the College of Science program at the University of Arizona is a great experience. For one, all your professors and peers are undoubtedly supportive of your aspirations. The professors specifically have gone out of their way for me to ensure that I will be able to find a job right out of college that I love to do."

Jacob Kannel - 3/24/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"The University of Arizona was a fantastic institution to complete my undergraduate degree at. Its large College of Science and immense Biology program helped mold me into a graduate ready student. The classes are well-thought out and insightful, and allow for the best to be brought out in the student. Whether it's analyzing scientific literature, or providing you with hands-on experience in the field of your choosing. the University of Arizona is a great scientific institution."

Rachael - 3/23/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014
"I believe the University of Arizona is a great school for students who would like to earn a degree in the sciences. Most of my teachers were incredibly knowledgeable, and always have office hours in case you need a bit of extra help (which is often necessary with college level science classes!). Though the teachers are great, it is the responsibility of the student to be sure they are on track. The UofA is still a large school, and it can be difficult to get the appropriate counseling on which classes to take which will be beneficial for your future goals, while also contributing towards getting your degree. Fortunately, there are many great clubs on campus, which is extremely helpful to build relations with students with similar goals as your own. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the UofA, and feel my classes, especially my upper division classes, have prepared me for moving on to Physician Assistant school."

Travis Perryman - 3/22/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019
"The University of Arizona has amazing professors that really care about the quality of education their students receive. Upon entering the university, I learned about the amount of research opportunities available to students and the amount academic advising available to guide students to their goals. I have a pre- med advisor and neuroscience advisor, which gives me the ability to not only plan my bachelor degree schedule out, but also to prepare for medical school by coordinating my bachelors degree classes with ones that will prepare me for graduate level work. With out all the resources that were available to me at the University of Arizona I think would be third year student with no idea about what I want to do and how to get there."

Anthony Canepa - 3/21/2017
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2018
"I have never had a negative experience with a single professor, teaching assistant, advisor, or administrator in the Geography department at the UofA. Every professor is genuinely interested in your academic achievement and will go out of their way to make sure you are comprehending the material."

Megan Szura - 3/20/2017
Degree: Law & Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018
"I am currently a junior enrolled at the University of Arizona in the bachelor law program. The University of Arizona is one of very few colleges who offer a B.A. in law. The program is designed to expose undergrad students interested in Law school, as well as criminal justice related careers, to material they will need to be successful at law school and in their future careers. I personally have enjoyed the program and the wide variety of classes offered by the University of Arizona. I have been able to customize my class schedule to target my overall goal of becoming a police officer. The University of Arizona, as well as many other colleges around the country, offer Criminal Justice majors, however, if you want a more interactive and rewarding experience in college the B.A. Law program is for you. Overall the program offers customizability, convenience, and tons of opportunities to form connections in your career field of Law. The University of Arizona is a top notch college and offers students all of the necessities they need to be successful. I would highly recommend the Bachelor Law Program at the University of Arizona to any student looking for a interesting degree with major payback."

Riah D. - 3/17/2017
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013
"The sun could be the brightest thing about the University of Arizona. The campus and facilities are gorgeous. Nothing beats like cool 70 degree weather in January. And it truly is a fabulous school for so many areas of study like business and astronomy. However, if I were looking to study English, literature, and creative writing. I might seek another program. What the English programs had in knowledgeable instructors and engaging courses, it lacked in career guidance. There was no mentoring for the undergraduate. I had several internships throughout my undergraduate career but all I sought out myself. There is little in the way of alumni support in the English department as well. While I was able to manage to secure a "career" in my field, I wasn't able to initially. But perhaps, that is the nature of an English major."
