WAIT.… If you don’t know what www.universityprimetime.com is by now, get your head straight, SERIOUSLY. It’s kind of the hottest college website in the world right now, so give us a LIKE on Facebook —> HERE and give us a FOLLOW on Twitter/Instagram–> @UPrimetime. You won’t regret it. We have some awesome giveaways in the near future!
1. The Rec
Arizona’s rec center is among the finest in the nation. That also means it’s one of the busiest. Go at the right time and you’ll have yourself a nice workout. Go at the wrong time and you’ll find yourself with no equipment to use, while frat bros stare at the mirror doing bicep curls. Oh and if you’re looking for a sample of Arizona’s beautiful women, this is the place to be (check the cardio equipment).
2. Highland Burritos
If you go to the UofA and haven’t had one of these yet, figure it out. These burritos are generally loved by any and all who eat them. Even if you need to be hammered to eat one yourself, few things sound more appetizing at 2am after a long night of going out. Yeah, occasionally you might end up waiting for 45 minutes, BUT it’s all worth it in the end plus there’s a boatload of people there to hang out and see.
3. The Library and Finals
So it’s the end of a long semester and you’ve got one week until you’re back home and seeing all the high school friends. The only thing in your way is four to five finals and bam you’ll be on a break. To study for these tests you figure you’ll head to the library and study. Except the problem is when you get there at 7pm, the entire building is packed. It happens every semester, but who’s surprised? We all know that this school is known for its academics right?
At the beginning of each semester, we have the luxury of spending up to $1000 at the bookstore and having it added to our tuition account (hopefully to be paid by our parents). Although the school offers this option of payment as a route to acquire textbooks, they also conveniently sell everything from Beats headphones, to Arizona apparel, and even Ipads. Best part is, the charges show up on the bill to parents as “bookstore charge of $xxx.” But the good news for parents is the only thing their kids are buying are solely for educational purposes.
Even if you don’t go to the UofA, you know ASU is scum. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed any more hate towards an establishment from the general public as much as UofA hates ASU. How on earth can you like them? Mustard yellow and maroon might be the absolute most repulsive color scheme from any university on this planet. And what on earth is a SunDevil? A devil in the sun? Really creative!
Anyways. All jokes aside, everybody at the UofA has a collective opinion about that school up north. You’ll most likely hear a “F*ck ASU” chant at 75% of parties, or get attitude from any wildcat when you assume they mean ASU when they say “I go to Arizona.”
Even Urbandictionary knows.
6. Your Greek Organization Is or Has Been Under Investigation For Hazing.
Luckily for everyone, “the University of Arizona does not believe in hazing within the greek system.”
7. Coronado & AzSo
For anyone, freshman year is nuts, it really is. However if you’re fortunate enough to live in Coronado or AzSo, your college experience will be automatically 10x better. Coronado, also known as the 9 floors of whores is the best dorm to be in if you’re looking to have fun. You’ll get used to all of the UAPD cars out front, along with the occasional ambulance. Checking your friends in at the front desk on weekend nights is mandatory, meaning if you’re too drunk to stand, they won’t let you up. AzSo is just as crazy, and almost better because theres no checking in nonsense. Plus the PSU is right there, and we all know about Bagel Talk.
The dorms on Highland are pretty cool as well because in addition to Likins,they’ve got the Rec right there along with the Highland Market. If you live in Graham-Greenly, Hopi, Manzi-Mo, Yuma, Kaibab or any of those other dorms I suggest you ask for a housing refund.
8. Pool Parties
Pool party season is generally 5 of the 9 months of the school year with the break being mid Novemberish — Marchish (essentially during basketball season). Whether its a party at the Seasons or Retreat, going to a pool party at Arizona is different than any other kind of party at all. For one nobody actually gets in the pool, and if its at the Seasons, the water ends up turning brown…somehow. The Retreat parties are a bit more fun because everyone has friends who live there and each house basically has it’s own thing going on. Arizona pool party videos made by I’mShmacked have over one million views on YouTube, if you haven’t seen them yet go kick rocks.
9. You’ve Almost Died Walking To Class
Or you’ve seen someone eat dirt while riding a bike/skateboard. Either way, walking on the mall is always an adventure. And when it rains all the bikes end up looking like:
The rowdiest student section in the PAC-12. That’s us. Football season brings a solid amount of commitment to the zoo with room for 10,000 students a game, and the spirit is unreal, from body paint to rushing the field against Oregon, Wildcats get it done. However basketball season is what we live for. Being #1 ranked in the NCAA for 9 weeks of the 2014 season, no wonder there were riots once we were eliminated in the tournament.
