    As an Arizona native who decided to stay in-state, I can't imagine being at any other university. Research opportunities are available if asked. In some departments, it is harder than others.

    The University of Arizona is not a bad school, but it is fails to be exceptional in most areas.

    Totally different experience The professors are great, the facilities are wonderful. I can't imagine liking another campus this much. The only downside is that it's in Tucson, Arizona, and the rest of Tucson is pretty awful. Especially if you are going here for science or business you are really going to have a ton of research and networking opportunities. This school is well respected and looks really good on a transcript. Programs are challenging but they provide an immense amount of tutoring opportunities. PARTIES ARE AMAZING. ...Continue reading

    If you are in greek life it is AWESOME. The campus is beautiful, and while many people don't like Tucson there are lot of interesting things to do if you seek them out.

    Third year here - great weather, some phenomenal professors, some lame. It's a food court with many options, much better than any other college I visited with only a couple cafeteria lines. Not top quality, but plenty of selection. Bad math department, but good in other areas. Just look to see where your major lies. It's hot in the summer but worth it. The food gets old if you live on campus, and the wifi is extremely spotty. But there's always a lot going on on campus. I love it here! ...Continue reading

Although there are over 45,000 students on campus, there is not a day that goes by where I don't recognize someone I know while walking to class. I never considered coming here before I visited, but I must say I am so glad I did. Tucson may suck sometimes, but the U of A is always great. It's hard to find super healthy options for cheap and its super easy to eat fast food everyday. If that's not your speed, don't come here. Otherwise, best school in the nation, hands down.

    Stussie is an awesome professor, Accounting 200 isn't an easy class but he teaches it so well, and you can tell he know what he is talking about! Accounting 200 is a very challenging class and he does all he can to help out the students. He is almost always available to reach and if you go into his office hours he really tries to work with you so you can do well in the class. Acct 200 is designed to be tough but Stussie actually cares for his students grades. He moves pretty fast in class but if you have a question he will stop and break it down until you understand. You have to go to class and pay attention to be successful but he is always there to help! ...Continue reading

    Dr. Talanquer is an absolute GEM. He wants all of his students to learn and do well. He calls on people during lecture to make sure you're paying attention even if you're wrong he'd prefer that you learn than to stay quiet. He is very helpful during office hours. Get to know him and you'll do well in the class. We did have Sapling reading quizzes and in class quizzes sometimes.

    Dr. Price can be awkward and get off topic during lectures, which makes the last unit lectures very rushed because he has no time left. Sometimes he would go on and on about little topics so I suggest reading the text book to help solidify the information . His tests are different than 201, they require you to go beyond just memorizing structures and basic functions. Just keep up with the lectures and don't wait till the last minute to study! ...Continue reading

    Professor Jacobs is amazing. She cares about each student and wants everyone to do well. There is a lot of weekly reading but it's super doable and reading questions in class are not hard. Also, she has a really nice voice lmao. The class is a lot better if you actually do the readings or you can skip the readings and look like a dunce during group/individual posts in class. Hopefully attendance will become optional so deadwood can go on its way creating a better atmosphere for those who care. overall easy enjoyable class. ...Continue reading

    Dirk is one of the best lecturers i've ever had and without a doubt made ECON200 worth-while and fun. He will keep you engaged. He's also a great guy. Expect to read the textbook because his homework questions and exam questions are practically straight from the textbook. He wrote it. The class was simple and an easy A. Always do the online assignments and the think pair shares. The class is pretty big so if you need help, go to office hours. Also always try to go to the test reviews the night before exams, he's really helpful and goes over past exams. ...Continue reading

    Heidi is probably the most engaging professor I've had at the UA. She explains things well and will help you during tests if you need it. Don't bother buying the book, you won't need it. She really wants everyone to understand the material and is great at answering questions. If you go to class you don't even need the textbook. She's such a sweet person and a great teacher. ...Continue reading

    Some people don't like Dr. Talanquer because they think he is condescending, but he just has a really dry sense of humor. Tests are much harder than Sapling- make sure you understand trends and can apply them, rather than a type of problem. 'Chemical Thinking' is hard, but worthwhile in terms of the information being applicable to the real world. Their book is free online. TA's for lab were great. I came into the class really nervous because I sucked in Chemistry. But I left a lot more confident. He makes you want to learn, and he's always there for office hours and stuff. Definitely would recommend! ...Continue reading

    Daly was not a good teacher. I relied heavily on the textbook because it seemed to be the only way I would understand the material. He is a super nice guy, but for people who don't understand things the first time, I would not recomment him. ...Continue reading

    He's not a bad professor like people say he is. Chemistry at the UA is very difficult and he does his best to help his students do well. He even holds his own reviews for tests. However, if you're not good at chem & want to get a grade higher than a C just attending lectures is not enough. SI sessions are what make the difference. Yes this is one of the hardest courses at UA and you have to work very hard for an A or B, but Daly provides so many resources and if you go to office hours he will remember you! I didn't gain much from his lectures and taught myself a lot but I still enjoyed his witty remarks! ...Continue reading

    Interesting classes, and she's a pretty nice person. Palmer worked for Congressional Quarterly before becoming a teacher and has so much first hand information. She is very helpful, cheerful, and interested in the subject. I learned immense amounts on how Congress actually functions. A must take course. The subject matter is fairly in-depth, and is augmented by years of professional experience in DC. Five homework assignments, five quizzes, a midterm, and a final make up the grade, and showing up to class and doing assigned reading virtually guarantee success. ...Continue reading

    Prof Talanquer is such an amazing professor. However, he is one of the few teachers at the U of A that GENUINELY wants you to succeed- he will yell at you, randomly pick on you in class, and make you work for every grade you receive, but he will do anything in his power to help you succeed. He sure is sassy, but he 's the best. The exams are really hard but reading the book before class and going to office hours makes a difference. He's also pretty funny and sarcastic sometimes which makes class fun. And the curve will save your grade in the end. ...Continue reading

    Stussie is a wonderful teacher. HOWEVER, if you had to take it, Stussie is the best Professor to take it with. He's helpful, caring, and overall a great teacher. BE SURE TO KEEP UP with the material and PAY ATTENTION in class!!! He presents the information very clearly and doesn't make it any more confusing than it has to be. Accounting at the UA is a hard course, but he makes it MUCH more manageable. He is obviously knowledgable and can answer any questions you have. Loved this instructor! ...Continue reading

    Class time is example problems & concepts for how to do problems. This is beneficial. Physics is problem solving. The book is decent. Physics is something YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR!! Office hours exist! You won't learn just by writing down equations. He is very caring! One of the big issues is not following up with emails for in-class problem solutions. ...Continue reading

    Chem 152 is naturally a difficult class but Daly tends to make it seem harder than the other professors will. The course is difficult but Daly is willing to help you do well in the class. The problem is that he accidentally contradicts himself in his lectures which is especially important when explaining trends where there are only two possible answers. Often, he will work out a problem and must think that the answer is assumed? ...Continue reading

    Brent is fantastic at making sure people understand the material and get good grades. Brent is amazing and he is amazing in teaching us the difficult materials presented in class. His entertains the class through his humors and is so far the best professor I have taken at the University of Arizona. He serves the definition of a true, caring professor. Homework and tests are curved, study hard and you will do fine. He is very laid back and sometimes unorganized/late to class, but show up and turn in every assignment, even if its incomplete, and youll do fine. ...Continue reading

    Not the best physio teacher, would not recommend taking him if you do not have to. His lectures are out of order and his tests are extremely unpredictable.

    Walsh is a very engaging lecturer and I enjoyed his section of the class. Don't skip because he goes over so much information and his test are based so heavily from his slides and often have questions that you would never know if you didn't pay very close attention. Definitely hard tests but doable. He is easy to follow during lecture, and makes fun of ASU all of the time. However, he is never clear on what will be on the exams. He will spew tons of info during class that you think will be on exam, then he ends up testing you on things he never talked about. He is either a hit or miss, look for other options first ...Continue reading

    Between Walsh and Neo, Neo had the easier tests, but he is a very difficult lecturer. If I was him I would start a business reading lecture slides around bed time to people who have insomnia. Other than that his tests are not terrible. He rambles about information that doesn't always have to deal with what is being taught. He only teaches 13 of the class so it is tolerable but just beware you might have to read the info he is teaching outside of class in order to understand what he is talking about. ...Continue reading

    Dirk is a fantastic professor. I'm not a business major, I'm taking business administration as a minor. Dirk managed to make economics very interesting to me and I got an A in the class. Used real world examples that really helped me to learn. If youre choosing between him and someone else, choose DIrk! Also lots of media examples which are nice. Attendance isn't mandatory but he does give participation points and that helps your grade a lot. I just went to class, paid attention, and passed all my tests. ...Continue reading

    ok so he really tries to teach but he cant. Everyday in class he gets corrected for math mistakes at least 2 times. He makes careless calc mistakes, then lightly does some examples.

    Hidalgo is cool and accessible outside of class. The U of A needs to give her a raise. She is very friendly and helpful during office hours. Do all the extra worksheets and go to Friday review sessions. I also ended up reading a lot of other textbooks for gen chem and orgo. There was homework evey week or so, but she covered everything in class, so it wasn't too bad. The tests were HARD. Be prepared to study. ...Continue reading

    I'm a little disappointed that I'm limited to 350 characters because I have a lot of feelings about Dhar. Barun is one of the worst professors I have ever had. All learning is done outside of class and he makes you feel like an idiot during class. He assigns advanced homework night you are introduced to a topic. He lectures a week behind the syllabus, and barely brushes over difficult concepts. He has a Physics Forums account and likes to sass. I tried to tolerate him, but it was hard. ...Continue reading

    Stussie is an awesome professor, Accounting 200 isn't an easy class but he teaches it so well, and you can tell he know what he is talking about! Accounting 200 is a very challenging class and he does all he can to help out the students. He is almost always available to reach and if you go into his office hours he really tries to work with you so you can do well in the class. Acct 200 is designed to be tough but Stussie actually cares for his students grades. He moves pretty fast in class but if you have a question he will stop and break it down until you understand. You have to go to class and pay attention to be successful but he is always there to help! ...Continue reading

Get to know him and you'll do well in the class. We did have Sapling reading quizzes and in class quizzes sometimes.
