It is an OK school, but not that great. In the general education classes, there are typically a lot of stupid people who are distracting.

The administration is very bad because every office and department is independant of one another and does not know how the other operates. So if you ever run into a problem, you will get told different things by different people before you can even resolve anything.

Like most schools, your grades here depend on your teacher- how difficult or easy he/she chooses to make the subject. I would recommend reading StudentsReviews to choose an instructor who has a generally favorable rating among students because if you get a bad instructor, you will have a difficult time.

I cannot say much about the social aspects of the university, since I do not participate in them, but it seems like there are a number of clubs students could join.

responseI think someone knows very little about how universities work. All departments at all universities are independent of each other. It's how higher education works. This isn't high school, folks. In fact, there are other universities where the departments are even more segregated. At the University of Oregon, for example, the tuition money that each college brings in is kept by that college. So, if the business school brings in more than the math department, the math department is just SOL. Arizona isn't even close to being like that. It really amazes me that people know so little about the way the real world of higher ed works.
