    Pac 12!!!! Since the U of A is a Pac 12 school, that means the football and basketball games are crazy especially if you're in Zona Zoo, which is the student section. Besides the sports conference being insane, the campus is beautiful, yes it does get hot, but you will get used to it by the 2nd week. The people here are nice, even the instructors. The U of A gives me a sense of freedom with being away from home and doing things on my own.

    The campus is beautiful. My favorite part of the campus itself is the Student Union, which is one of the largest in the entire country. The restaurants and fast food are wonderful and easily accessible whenever you want (within reason of course). The Rec center is awesome and great for working out in your free time and the lounges are relaxing and perfect positions. As far as the classes go, they are pretty awesome for the most part. There hasn't been a class yet that I've hated and I've enjoyed being here very much.

    The University of Arizona’s diversity really helps give each student countless opportunities to enjoy their college experience. As a Tucson native I was familiar with the University of Arizona campus, and assumed that I knew just about everything there was to know about the school even before my first day. Again the university proved me wrong (as it often does). I had no idea how many different activities, communities, and groups there were, or how self contained the school was. When club fair came around I was surprised to see the mall packed with club after club, and unlike high school they were clubs that I had never seen before, or even thought of, and, of course, I had to join a few. To my surprise there was a martial arts tricking/acrobatics club called UA Tricks. This was one niche that I most certainly fit in to, as I had actually started a similar club in my high school, but was pretty disappointed with our single digit membership. This club was packed with people, and because of that we had access to high quality trampolines, gyms, and equipment, that I could have only dreamed about last year. The clubs aren’t the only enjoyable aspects of the U of A. I quickly found that the campus was a microcosm, a city of its own. There was just about everything you needed, a high quality gym, futuristic dorms (seriously Arbol de la Vida is unbelievable), a movie theatre, cuisine from just about every country, nightly entertainment (so much so that I often have trouble deciding whether to see the improv-comedy group, or going to the socials in my dorm), and best of all this city is shared with young, friendly, idealistic, ambitious students that help to make every day memorable.

    Once you find a balance between work and play, you'll have a great time (especially if you get involved in intramural sports or clubs).

    I honestly have enjoyed being here very much. I have met and made so many friends that I believe I will have for the rest of my life. I have been introduced to not only peers, but teachers and professors that have made my experiences worth while. I have made so many connections that I hope to benefit my future career.
