The Grand Canyon State earned its nickname for good reason--it's not short on natural beauty. Arizona colleges in the southern portion are blanketed by dry desert heat and sun, while the northern region features large forests, plateaus, mountain ranges, and deep canyons. There are 36 colleges in Arizona, 24 public and 11 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Arizona has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.
Arizona State University and the University of Arizona are the state's flagship institutions and epitomize the "big state school" experience with a large range of degrees of study in a bustling urban environment.
For a smaller college experience, consider Prescott College. Located in the small city of Prescott, this private liberal arts college is best known for its environmental studies programs.
