This campus has to be one of theSuper BrilliantAnthropology
This campus has to be one of the worst shell games in the United States. Oh its pretty and an attractive campus to look at but totally morally broken down. The staff here spends most of the semester leading folks down long spiraling rabbit wholes of no return. Professors accuse students of being disorganized and un professional but they end up causing more confusion and disarray then being functional. Nobody communicates and every department acts like autonomous feudal lordships when it comes to understanding what each professor wants. The total arrogance of faculty is astonishing and financial aid is a total crock. Finaid spends most their time trying to make you have somebody co-sign to get private loans and if you do not have a family or, other resources as a pillow, they destroy your financial aid on purpose. Like many others here stated, many classes are not recognized due to grad students teaching the classes. Nobody that works here will be caught dead taking any responsibilities on how they trash students. And if your not a mainstream Christian or Muslim your totally screwed even though its supposed to be secular. Its like a Vortex on being a greedy ignorant degree mill. I would strongly suggest going someplace else unless your determined to purposely rip your family and friends off. Every professor I now outside here laughs at the mentioning of this campus. Run away a warning to all.

I hate this place.Anthropology
I hate this place. I'm into sports, video games, fashion, and learning about different cultures and languages, but I feel that I'm at the wrong university to find others who share my interests. This is a school in the mountains of Arizona where most are interested in outdoor activities and drinking. Also, I'm not sure if this is a direct corollary of the education system here (I'm from California) but the students here do not seem to be too interested in intellectual pursuits; it's too easy to get good grades here, which is why I haven't transferred. Also if you're of a minority race you WILL be on the end of some racial slights, especially if you're a male in which you'll be looked at as if you come from Mars (even more so if you don't play a sport and get good grades)

The Veterans program is a scam. They take the VA's money, graduate you, then a few years later come after you for more money.
