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 a 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 by 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 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.
