Fall vs. Spring Semester at U of A: Which Is Better?

Let's be real both are amazing.

Fall vs. Spring Semester at U of A: Which Is Better?

We’re back on campus for the spring semester and ready to get back to the basketball games and pool parties. There’s been a bit of argument over which semester at U of A is better, fall or spring? According to Whatsgoodly 32 percent of students favor fall semester while 68 percent favor spring semester as their favorite. Both semesters offer a lot, let me list just a few of the great events.

Fall Semester

Reuniting with the Dirty T

There is no better feeling than getting back to campus after a long summer break and seeing all your friends. Although the break is nice everyone is ready to get back to the Dirty-T by the end of it, because let’s be real, the University of Arizona is better than any place you might be spending your summer.

Football Season

Tailgates and football games, there's nothing better during fall! Football season gives us something to look forward to on Saturdays. No better way to spend the day than in the perfect weather with an ice cold beer.

Warm Weather

Although it may be a little too warm during August and September, at least, its not cold or raining! The weather makes you want to actually go outside and run, hike, tan, or just sit on your porch.

Pool Parties

Warm weather means pool parties! Which in Arizona means pool parties pretty much all year long. We’re lucky to have such a great alternative when there are no football games.


A week full of partying and a weekend full of reuniting with your favorite alumni and meeting new alumni as well.

Spring Semester

Basketball Season

Basketball season is a little more thrilling than football season for several reasons. You’re inside and not dying in the heat, the games are a lot shorter and there are more games overall.

Spring Break

Arizona’s spring break opportunities are endless. Mexico, Havasu, LA, and the Grand Canyon, are all less than 6 hours away. No matter where you spend the week a break during the middle of the semester is a great feeling.

Even Better Weather

The weather is nice during the fall but even better during the spring. It’s a perfect combination of warm but not so warm that you sweat walking to your car.

Even More Pool Parties

Perfect weather means perfect pool parties. Although there are plenty of pool parties during the fall semester there is, at least, one every weekend during the spring semester.

Spring Fling

The spring version of homecoming week but this time with a carnival on campus. Reliving your childhood on the rides is always a fun time.

No Formal Recruitment

No bouncing, talking to strangers, or standing in heels all day, can I get an AMEN?!

Feel A Little Older and Wiser

Overall you come into the spring semester just feeling a little older and a little wiser. You feel like you’re getting the hang of whatever year in school you are and you think you know what you’re doing with your life.

Looks like spring semester wins in the battle of which semester is better. But let’s face it any semester at U of A is the best one!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
