Hello, my name is Or Chay and I am from Netaim, Israel. I chose the University of Arizona because of three main reasons; the excellence in academics, the vibrant social life, and the scholarship opportunities the University offers to International students.
The thing I love the most about the University of Arizona is having the opportunity to get quality education with the best professors in the field and the great social life style the University provides.
HIKE HIKE HIKE! I was extremely surprised upon my arrival to see that Tucson is located in a valley surrounded my majestic mountains. Explore the nature around Tucson; it is beautiful and extremely unique. Tucson is one of the few places in the world where you can see saguaros, they are AWESOME.
I am personally very involved in the famous Greek life here at the University of Arizona. I joined Alpha Epsilon Pi during my freshman year and I can definitely recommend Greek life to new students. I have found a new family that served as my main anchor while studying here at the UA.
