Hi, my name is Damaris and I am from Quito, Ecuador! I am majoring in Deaf Studies and Interpreting. I am also a transfer student. I transferred to the University of Arizona last year from another school in the United States.
I chose UA because it has a great campus and the warm weather is also a plus! My favorite thing about UA is the recreation center. It is so big and enjoyable. You will want to go there every day!
Tucson is a college town so there are a lot of people around your age and there is always something to do. The University of Arizona is a friendly place where you can meet new people from all over the world. There are many student organizations that you can join where you can meet even more people!
For my sophomore year, I decided to live in a residence hall. I enjoy living on campus because I am close to my classes and the student union where I can buy food and school books. Living in the residence hall is a great college experience!
I made one of the best decisions coming to the University of Arizona!
