What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The University is a wonderful school because of its diverse student body, strong academics, and recreational facilities. There are so many great tutoring and advising resources available for me whenever they need help with certain classes. Also, I have met a lot of students from different cultural backgrounds that have introduced me to new ideas and perspectives related to school.

The University that has it all- strong academics, strong athletics, and the whole college experience. With a beautiful campus that is well-planned and in the heart of Tucson, every social gathering and research project is within reach! Just remember to bring a hat and some water :)
