I would not recommend this college or from what I have heard from others, U of A satellite campus' either. I was hoping for a continuation of the environment that I had with my previous college, one of open discussion and and interaction with different thoughts and ideas. That is not what happened. You have to be an unknown voice in the school of fish here. Any dissent and you will be punished. Don't be different, don't stand up to the faculty and don't use your brains. If the latter sounds like you, this might be your school.

Meanwhile trying to track down someone to answer a question is a nightmare. You get transferred back and forth, each person stating that it is the other persons authority. These people have no clue as to what their own policies are, or who has what responsibility. A joke. I'm getting out of here and going on to Arizona State.

responseI suspect this person was in for a rude awakening. ASU is twice as big as UA, because their out-of-state admissions standards are so low. They will literally take anyone with the money to pay. Phoenix is the most unfriendly, right-wing place you will ever see. The place makes the "top party school" lists every single year. But, hey, if that's what you're looking for in an "education", I guess ASU is the place for you.
