Well worth a visit to the art and culture museums clustered around the campus. Lowry, Pollock and Rothko to name a few. No backwater this.

Great and exciting to see where the first experiment of how people would possibly live on another planet was executed. The drive we took during August monsoons was not to disappoint, rain, rain, and more rain. Great day.

If you have your "CatCard" you can ride the bikes that are called "Catwheels" and go for all the campus :) REC Center is awesome!

Spent several hours in two rooms! Stellar! Professor Higgins provided an infectious enthusiastic discussion of Native American pots. From primitive to modern, these pots provide a wealth of insight to our indigenous ancestors as well as a glimpse toward the future of Native American pottery .

At first glance, the university (total student enrollment of about 40,000) looks like a huge cluster of red-brick buildings with little to offer a Tucson visitor. Yet it holds a modest, but excellent fine arts museum; the outstanding Arizona State Museum with its focus on the peoples of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico; a tiny planetarium; the Center for...

Want to see a show? Centennial Hall. Hungry? Fabulous food finds. Searching? Try the library or one of the museums. Even though I worked at UA for 10 years, I never tire of the campus and its history.

As an author and poet, it's natural I would be drwn to the Pocen. I was really impressed by this creative writing oasis. The docents are very friendly and helpful. The collection is great. I see now why this is considered on of the premier poetry centers in the country.

Surprised by the green campus in the desert! Great to see construction on all 3 visits, including dorms.

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.
