Walked around campus during spring break

Nice and quiet, pretty campus for being downtown. We were there during spring break, so didn't see too many people.

Turn back the clock 45 years and I would have loved this campus. It looks small enough to get around. Cool strip of restaurants near by. lots of interesting trees and plants on site.

HUGE! If you can read there are authors, exhibitor, science, entertainment. Check out the website. BUT since last year the program had no booth assignments or author assignments. We were lost to see our favorites - someone dropped the ball or the ran out of money.

Had to drop in and see this campus, beautiful landscaping, good architecture, and interesting campus neighborhood with good restaurants. Look for the Saguaro with the unusual top near the campus center.

The campus is beautiful! The walking was a bit much. I wish I could have seen the residence halls. The student union was very vibrant - so was the food court. Too much traffic for me!

Fascinating place to visit if you have any interest in astronomy. They make the giant mirrors for the big observatories in Chile. Will take over 5 years to make the mirrors. Good tour.

While your in town enjoying your tour of the University which is fabulous you will also enjoy all the little very unique shops and restaurants around the University. It is a really neat experience. Also while you are in the area check out 'Tin Town' on the Internet. Lots of history there too with a tour. Call first and book... More

Beautiful softball stadium! What can I say? We watched softball games the whole weekend! I like that they only charge you to watch U of A play. All other games are free to watch. Wish they would have served beer at the stadium though....

This place is a nightmare for a handicapped visitor. You are treated like DIRT. No information poor access terrible signage and a real negative attitude by staff.

This is where I went to college, so we (my Mom & I) were re-visiting the grounds. I love all of the new additions (I graduated in 2007). They added some great eateries which is now making me jealous that I'm not attending now :) I recommend everyone visit when you travel to Tucson.
