During my recent visit to Phoenix, AZ, I decided to the University of Arizona campus during our day getaway to Tucson. University of Arizona is well designed and has a beautiful campus.

My daughter was in town playing in a collegiate spring volleyball tournament at the McHale Center. There is parking directly in front of the facility - you park in a spot then pay at an electronic booth which takes credit cards! Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful, clean campus.

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.
