The University of Arizona:

Brief Description: Public research university offering nearly 400 acres of Southwestern architecture and lush vegetation in Tucson, Arizona.

High Honors: UA is listed as a “Best Western College” by the Princeton Review and ranks as one of the country’s top producers of Fulbright Scholars.

Sunny Delight: Tucson is set in the Sonora Desert Valley and surrounded by mountain ranges, providing a perfectly warm and dry climate for year-round outdoor play and an average of 350 sunny days per year.


Fun Fact: To illustrate the concept of “sustainable cooking,” student members of the University’s dining services committee collected mesquite bean pods – which fall from mesquite trees located all over the campus – to produce a gluten-free flour for baking or cooking. The result? Chocolate chip mesquite bean cookies!
