I transferred from Arizona State University and canBrightLinguistics
I transferred from Arizona State University and can honestly tell you that UofA is much better in just about all aspects! Sure the school may be in the middle of nowhere, and Tucson may not be aesthetically pleasing, but there are plenty of hiking and biking trails along with plenty of other activities going on and not just on campus. There are also a lot of small businesses and locally owned restaurants. There's a lot of culture. As for the education itself, you simply get out what you put in. There are flaws in the system, but these are just as common at other universities too. I've also found people to be much more friendlier compared to my old school. There are resource centers for students of various backgrounds, and there's never been a day where I didn't feel welcome on campus. Some parties are exclusively for greeks, but there are other parties you can go to if you find them. I thought that my age would be a factor given that I'm in my mid-twenties, but I've had just as much fun and am here because I finally found my passion. There's a strong connection to the Native American community which makes this school and Tucson my home away from home!

Solid university with staffAverageCommunications
Solid university with staff that is caring and engaging. My 1st two years I struggled with navigating through the campus, coursework and system. By years 3 and 4 I knew exactly what track I needed to be on to graduate in 4 yrs which was accomplished and with Honors.

If you want to go to one ofQuite BrightCommunications
If you want to go to one of the most ignorant schools in the nation this is the school for you! You can party all day, skip half of your classes and probably still pass with a decent grades. Some of the stuff I saw while attending the university was honestly disturbing. Most of the students are on anti depressents, there's discrimination in most of the programs towards minority students and in the hiring process for school program positions Even though it's not overtly stated - Everything is really indirect here - . I'm going to be completely honest, from a spiritual stand point if you're a person that is sensitive to the energy or a minority this is NOT the place for you to be. Don't say I did not warn you.The only nice thing I can say about this school is that a few of the teachers had a genuine passion for what they were teaching but the departments don't even treat their faculty members fairly. I got so upset about what I was seeing around me that I went to HR to express some of my concerns for what I was seeing at the student union (they also treat student workers horribly because they can replace them easily with incoming freshman) he didn't seem to care until I threw out legal issues like disclosing personal emails to other faculty being and students being illegal. However, I was brushed off and not taken seriously. I will say every university has its problems, but this schools biggest downfall is its ignorance. Family guy summarized this school the best LOL
