The red bricks tie it all together with the grass mall down the center. Old Main is historic. Bear Down!

The grounds are beautiful and tranquil. I loved the history of the Native American Culture and spent 2.5 hrs. at the Museum on a Saturday. Parking on the streets and the parking garages is free in downtown Tuscon on both Saturday and Sunday. Great bonus to bring you downtown. The shuttle bus is just up the street and a ticket... More

Drove past the stadium and decided to park and take a campus tour. Great landscaping and easy walking paths to traverse across campus. Although not a student a nice place to experience some of the local culture and scenery.

My husband is a U of A alumni member, so great to walk around campus and see the changes. Many of the older building are in great shape. The Arizona Museum is dark on Sundays though.

The University of Arizona is known for many things, especially sports (the basketball, football's Desert Swarm, and a whole street called "National Championship Avenue) but I think the campus itself is unique. A lot of it is old but it's definitely not ivy-covered. Like most of Tucson UA has a lived-in patina, sort of a stately dustiness that's unique. Of... More

Great place to go to school. Both the school and campus offers a variety of things to do even if you are just visiting. With brand new athletic fields and facilities you are sure to witness a high level of athletic competition. Bear Down!!

Ending, the semester, with my B.A.--I loved it! Its freindly, easy-going atmoshpere, is awesome. The students and faculty, alike all seem to share--an egalitarian ideology! I loved the campus, easy to move around. Newer, Student Union--a must for lunch, w/ lots of eating options. Overall--a great experiience!

The University of Arizona is primarily a university, which means people go there allegedly to learn stuff, and to get an important piece of paper that allows them to advance in their career, or provides prestige. My rating is based partly on the quality of education a person is likely to receive. In my opinion, most universities, especially ones supported... More

I am from L.A. & lived near UCLA. The city did not rally around the Bruins the way folks in Tucson rally around the U of A. You could be at your kids soccer game & everybody will be talking about the game & wearing red. It is very touching to see. I now have a freshman at the school... More

We visited the University of Arizona campus for the NCAA volleyball tournament at the McKale Center. What a great facility. Parking is easy and the campus is great for walking about and seeing the different buildings/departments. Friendly and clean, it is worth stopping by if in the area.
