I enjoy vising universities and the grounds. The University of Arizona has grown substantially in the last ten years and has different architectural buildings that show its growth.

There is a lot going on at this major university, from NCAA sports to botanical walks around the grounds. The U could do a better job of advertising all that is going on there. That said, it has a lot for tourists of all ages. There are a dozen amazing things to see at U of A on any day:... More

We recently attended our daughter's graduation from the School of Pharmacy and Out of 8 pharmacy programs where she was accepted, she chose UAZ because of its reputation. The work load was very demanding. However, it was worth the effort because she learned a lot and was well prepared to enter the professional world. Other schools/programs at UAZ seem, likewise,...

My wife and her ex husband graduated from here. So for her it was like going home - except so much had changed in 30 years. For me, it was fun to be back on a university campus again. As an engineer, I was most interested in the telescope mirror facility tucked under the football stadium. Be sure to reserve... More

I'm interested in science and climate change but other people in my group were bored. The tour begins with a movie and then you proceed to walk from one eco - zone to the next. You only get to pass through each zone once . The concept is great but some of the glass window panes are cracked on the... More

If you're looking to please your aesthetic senses, I'm puzzled why anyone visiting Tucson would want to bother with the U of A, given the large number of other appealing attractions. The Arizona State Museum on the campus is excellent, and the evening programs at the observatory are often really interesting. Otherwise, this is a pleasant campus, relatively manageable for...

My family and I are college sports fanatics so we always stop at universities where ever we visit. This was a nicer than normal visit. Easy parking around the main part of campus. The student union was full of people and very close to other things.

I was very impressed with the tour to introduce applicants and their parents to the U of A. Very well done, in-depth tour. U of A has the SALT program to help students succeed-- very innovative. I thought of U of A as a party school but they won me over-- they have great programs for undergraduate research and internships.

Be prepared to pay to park. Once you've done that, there's a lot to do on campus. Lots of free or cheap museums, plenty of shopping and both food-court quality places and unique nearby restaurants.

Probably the best looking and laid out college campus in the state. The uniform brick buildings all aligned in neat rows. Much nicer than the hodgepodge architecture of ASU.
