I cannot answer this question. Given my life-span and what I wish for while I occur, for me to answer this question may be impossible. I strongly think that to answer this question is impossible; maybe it is even a useless question. If you are an organism and you wish for knowledge then the University of Arizona is a place that you might go to do as much.

The typical student at the UofA tends to be athletic, either he or she may not be into sports. They are always wearing athletic gear, drinking water, having the latest cool phones, and always sporting an Apple laptop. The typical UofA student is almost always wearing school colors or wearing an Arizona sweatshirt or tank top, and sneakers or flip flops are a must. If you dont have water in hand a starbucks or some form of coffee is a must. As well as always working on school work. Being ahead is also a must. Not having homework on the weekend is a top priority so that partying can be done, or hanging out. There are almost always students in the library late at night during the week. The typical UofA student is a hardworking student during the week and a hard fun going partier doing the weekend. We know how to prioritize, and when to get things done.

A typical U of A student is very active, outgoing, and willing to meet new people. Fraternities and sororities play a big role on campus which shows how involved students like to be with their school and how outgoing most students are.

There is no "typical" student. The University of Arizona attracts a wide variety of students. But overall, the students that attend the University of Arizona are motivated and driven. Some of us are fresh out of high school. Others are transferring from a community college or a different four year university. Some students know exactly what they want to earn a degree in as soon as they apply. Other students start to take classes before realizing what it is that they want to do. The University of Arizona has a diverse group of students which enhances everyone's experience on campus.

"Typical" is a a difficult word to use to when describing a student from the University of Arizona. Attendees come from all over in order to study at our school. The student body is composed of Arizona residents, out of state students, and even international students! Being that everyone has a different background, they are different in their personalities as well. The subjects that a student can major in at this university varies so much that some students could possibly never meet students of a different major if it weren't for the Student union, sororities and fraternities, clubs, and mutual friends. Although every student differs, we are alike in the fact that we share the same school pride. No matter the fact that we could have come from rival high schools, if we were to sit next to one another at a Wildcats footballs game, we share the same love and support for our school. Our school motto, often heard at a Wildcats sporting event, is "Bear Down". Meaning, we should try our hardest at what we do, whether it be in sports, academics, or other areas in life. Students at the University of Arizona spend sleepless nights in the library, they wake up early to go to the gym, and work to help pay bills and loans; all while attending classes. That is an example of how one can "bear down".
These are the people that should attend our school. If one has the motivation to be better, they belong at the University of Arizona. "Better" could be a variety of things, including: more well rounded, living a healthier lifestyle while attending classes, being involved in the community during and after school, etc. The thing that all students at the University of Arizona have in common is the fact that we are attending the school in hopes of graduating and continuing for a better tomorrow.

With the UA having top academics and a large campus, I find the students to be motivated and academic driven. The library is huge and offers so many resources for students to achieve academic success. Whenever I am on campus I always see study groups, student polls and surveys being dispersed, and the professors offer extensive office hours. Any person looking to achieve academic success should look no further than the UA. The university sets its students up for total success.
