We really enjoyed the museum. Staff was very helpful and the informative. Excellent displays on all floors. The elevator was being repaired while we were there so we had plenty of steps to climb. That was good exercise. They do have senior citizen rates, and that is always pleasant.

The university has a great library with a ton of old stuff for reviewing family history. I found hand written records stuffed away that you just couldn't get online. The staff was very helpful.

We were on our way to the Corvette Assembly Plant and stopped in for lunch at the union. Beautiful campus with an all you can eat buffet at the union for $8.

It's a nice campus, but not really anything to do there unless you are attending a game. Parking is hard to find and expensive when you are able to find it.

We just drove around this campus and we were impressed by the general beauty. It would be a great though somewhat challenging walk through this campus.

Didn't get to walk around campus because it was new years day, but was able to drive around the campus and it is very clean and we liked how the dorms were all together and not so spread out over the grounds like some campus'

Parking was easy in the garages. The campus has had much construction lately and it's beautiful. The refurbished "DUC" has great places for a quick bite or coffee.
