Prospective students are invited to attend virtual events with a regional focus, April 4 - 9
I'm Sofia, and I am a sophomore at the University of Arizona, majoring in English with a minor in Public Relations. I am originally from Santiago, Chile, but I was born in Bogota, Colombia. I am a Unibuddy Ambassador on the International Admissions team at everywhere.arizona.edu, and I love to talk to prospective students about my experience and answer their questions about the University.
When I was going through the college application process, I had a difficult time envisioning myself at all the different universities I was applying to. I often wondered things like:
- How did the campus look?
- What are the other students like?
- How were the classes?
- What is the campus culture?
- But most importantly, would I fit in?
All these questions were difficult to answer without the ability to visit the schools and see firsthand what they could offer me as a student.
This year, during the week of April 4–9, 2022, the Office of International Admissions is hosting the World Tour to provide students an opportunity to learn if the University of Arizona is a good fit and the right choice.
The World Tour is the perfect event to meet the Enrollment Counselor for your region, ask all your questions, and connect with other prospective students that are interested in the University of Arizona. The best part about the World Tour is that you can attend from the comfort of your home. The World Tour is divided into different regions, offering specialized attention just for you.
