University of Arizona History. The members of the first class of the University of Arizona had just two colleges from which to choose: Mines and Agriculture. A higher education was seen as a practical means to an end back in the 1890s, rather than a journey of self-discovery. Much has changed in the last 100-plus years, and while an advanced degree is still seen as practical, it’s also provides the time for a students to explore their greatest potential.
