The University of Arizona is probably one of the few schools in America that does not allow students to even touch their major until their second or third years. Thus, the first year is exclusively Gen Ed, so you are better off getting them out the way at a community college then coming here.

It is impossible to feel involved at this school if you are NOT a greek. The school is extremly cliquish. If you are not involved in greek life, it is nearly impossible to make friends and feel like you belong.

People here are not very friendly. Arizona State has the party reputation but the University of Arizona is just as bad. If you want to get an education, meet more openminded people, while still having fun, go the Arizona State. I am transferring there for my sophomore year.

Also, I would recommend living in the dorms the first year. This is the best way to meet people other than being a greek. DO NOT live in Coronado, Apache-Santa Cruz, or Graham-Greenlee. These dorms are old and have all had several incidences in the past few years. The best dorm is Colonia de la Paz for its the newest one along with Pueblo de la Cienga, Villa del Puente, and Posada San Pedro(newest honors dorm.) Also speaking of honors, it is nearly impossible to get into the honors program here.

This is a med school. If your major is NOT medical or business related, DO NOT GO HERE.
