Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I think the school is pretty good. We have a lot of diversity, and a lot of interesting courses to take. It's just there is not a lot of student involvement. There needs to be better representation of the student body in making decisions about budget and tuition.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

Overall, the University of Arizona is a pretty good school. I like the scenery and that there are a lot of places where you can just sit and think. There could be more places that would accept the meal plan they have on campus. I like how they have a club fair where you can the tons of clubs there actually are. The academics are hard, some of them anyway, but for the most part you can see the value in the hard work.
