He cares more about University Resource Use than the average student.

Coming from the midwest I can say that the University of Arizona was an entirely different experience from what I expected.

Let's start with the student body. While you can find some very friendly people at UA, the vast majority of students here couldn't give a rat's ass about their academics. Life at UA is centered around the next party, and trying to look better than everybody else. Cali Bros and Hoes for the most part.

Student resources - the thinktank is a sham. You're really on your own when it comes to studying. Although people are paid to help the students, they still feel like it's really not their job to do anything.

Classes - Over sized, 1200 person lecture hall…that isn't an exaggeration. In my first semester I only had one class under 50 students. Professors vary, some are great, some are arrogant, and some really don't care.

Overall, I wish I had never even considered this school. The sunshine is great and the mountains are beautiful. However if you don't have a car, then the outdoor scene is nonexistent. Don't be fooled by the weather, it's great but if that's your only reason for coming here, then you're in for a rough transfer.
