Higher learning system was solid. Instructors were easy to interact with even via online. Campus is large but does not feel overwhelming.

In the state of Arizona, there are the "Big Three" universities. I attended Arizona State for my undergraduate degree, but attended the University of Arizona in Tucson. I felt that as as student, the U of A (as it is called) provided me with a much more personalized experience and outstanding professors. The U of A has Arizona's only full medical school with teaching hospitals throughout the state, has an excellent college of education, specifically the special education program with an emphasis in visual impairment (my program), and is home to the "silicon valley" of telescope optics. They own the nearby Kitt Peak observatory and built the telescope optics mounted aboard the Hubble space telescope. Tucson is also a heaven for foodies!

The instructors have been really stellar, the courses have been engaging and challenging,and my academic advisor has been a great source of support and advice. It has been challenging getting adequate funding in my first year, but staff and faculty have been very helpful in seeking out fellowships and scholarships, and I'm confident that the next year will go much smoother financially.

The UofA has great graduate programs. Just sometimes an unsafe campus.

Teach Arizona provides the quality of the teaching education curricula designed by instructional and research behemoths. Arizona is not very educationally friendly when it comes to teaching English language learners and public education has recently come under attack. This program has not only taught me how to teach, but also about the educational atmosphere that new Arizona teachers must revel with and change for the better. Patty and Berry, the founding professors of this program are two of the BEST resources I have ever encountered when it comes to connecting with job opportunities and honing my qualifying skill-set towards employers. Now undergoing my student-teaching, I am becoming more competent in my ability to teach and transform the classroom. When I finish I have no doubt this intensive 1-year program will have propelled me into the teaching profession. This is a professional degree.
