Surprised by the green campus in the desert! Great to see construction on all 3 visits, including dorms. Called ahead to Residence Life to request an escort into an honors dorm (not on student tours) after daughter was admitted, but was still deciding colleges; they assisted & had a student meet us & give us a quick tour. Easily-walkable campus... More

The University area is a fun place to visit, especially in the summer when school is out. Lots to see & eat. They have a trolley now.

Walk around the campus and see what the students see, including the student union. Buy some souvenirs. Don't miss the underground library. It's cool. And, then go down to University Blvd and buy a cool one or get a great meal. Live like a student once again.

Enjoyable afternoon visit while in Tucson visiting my son. Loved the bookstore & museums. Beautiful brick buildings with expansive green lawns. Parking was easy, inexpensive & convenient in the parking garage very near the student union. Would have loved to spend even more time here. Will return next time I'm in Tucson!

Attended graduation ceremonies here. Even though it is the 150th year for graduations, both ceremonies attended were disorganized and lengthy. The one outside in the football stadium had folks in the heat for hours and needlessly fainting due to the heat and lack of water.

Besides the fact that I think the U of A is an excellent university, I especially like the Old Main building, library, museums, bookstore, landscaping, and nearby restaurants on University Avenue such as the Wilko.

Get there early and spend some time outside walking around. If you don't get there early, you'll want to spend some time at the end of the tour. Try getting a Groupon if you can find one. It's usually half of the $20 adult fee. The place is fascinating. The tour was very good. It's an in depth course about... More

The Arizona History Museum on the campus of the University of Arizona is a good place to spend some hours, especially on a day when it's better to be inside.

We took the tour and made a late but good choice for my son. Campus size and facilities seemed just right. Everything was close. Can't beat the sports activities. Bear Down!
