I heard that the business school is great, but if you are wanting to go into any Arts related field. Such as psychology, anthropology, etc. Do not go here. This University is not interested in those departments, and they do not put much money into the buildings or faculty where these departments are concerned.

Nobody is going to MAKE you take good

Nobody is going to MAKE you take good classes, or even attend class for that matter. Act like an adult. Take an adult interest in your work. Your social life will be the same as it was in HS.

There are good departments, and an intellectual atmosphere is available, but not pervasive. You will have to seek it out. My experience was great, but that's because I did my work and sought out the best education I could get at UA.Good Luck!!

Dec 21 2004Economics
UA was a great place for a solid undergraduate education. Anything I "missed" or didn't learn was my own fault, not the university's. I wish I had taken more courses and studied abroad. I was extremely well prepared for grad school and the "real world."There are a host of opportunities for students of every skill level. Advanced students have opportunties to work with faculty in a one-on-one setting, and the University has a lot of resources to help students who aren't so advanced. It's a nice mix of intellectual variety--the smart students can be challenged while other students can feel that they aren't left behind. Unless you get into a top ten school or are uniquely suited for a liberal arts environment, you're wasting your time and money if you go anywhere else.
