Excellent education at this university. Pac 12 sports conference so you get to see exciting teams. Most sports are followed by this town nor just the students. No pro sports teams here. The town was sad when U of A basketball lost in the NCAA tourney, our waiter was crying. We watched a college baseball game while there. Nice newer... More

Cool campus not unlike many other great Universities but this one is in the desert so everyday is a gorgeous day here! A must see when your visiting Tucson. There is a great Concert/Lecture Hall --Centennial Hall with tons of free Lectures and many great concerts! A little college village area with cool shops is nearby.

Went to school there and love going back for tailgating, football, basketball, planetarium. Parking is awful (has gotten better). Fun to hang out on the mall and people watch.

If you like walking around a university campus, you can't go wrong at the U of A. Interesting architecture, desert trees and cacti, co-eds, etc. get a snack at the Student Union and browse the bookstore

We visited the Worlds of Words, the AZ state museum, the Center for Creative Photography exhibit, the Flandrau science, and the mineral exhibit. We should have allowed more time at the science museum as they have many interactive exhibits good for all ages. The AZ state museum has so much information about tribal history, it is almost an overload. The... More

A fabulous event attended by a great many people. If the author(s) you are interested in hearing are particularly popular, you will need to line up well ahead of time. I suggest 60 - 90 minutes ahead of time. I missed my first session as I arrived with just 15 minutes to spare; the hall, seating 350 people, was already... More

We attended the Arizona Experience 3/29 with our children. Son is interested in the astronomy and physics program. The days event we're put together very well. Lots of good information. Now, how do I send my son from Ohio to Arizona?

We visited campus as our daughter is considering coming here for her Masters. We took the 'incoming freshmen/undergrad' tour which was fine as we wanted to see all that there was that the guides would point out to undecided students and their parents. The campus is wonderful, lots of green space and the campus itself is very 'green'. LOTS of... More

Very well organized campus with good signage and easy access to facilities and essentials. Class/Lecture Rooms had great amenities like data ports and power outlets. Comfortable seating and good views of panels/ speakers.
