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.

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.

This was an awesome game. Played in a great venue. Very exciting, high scoring game and well behaved, controlled crowd.

We did a walk about with no guided tour. Stopped in the library and the music dept. Easy to get around the campus but try to get someone to show you around.

Between my daughter's dorm room and the area encompassing the school, it has that "college" feel. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to many more in the future.

Parking was a nightmare and you even have to pay for handicap parking, which were always taken. It was fun to see so many young people who seemed to be enjoying their lives.

We visited specifically for the mineral museum, which has a great exhibit, "The Best of the Best"--specimens from private collections on loan to the University. That said, the University's collection is also great. We spent a couple of hours there but could have extended that given the many other exhibits and activities there.
