“BIG campus with BIG BIG sports facilities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Most of the brick buildings have unusual architectural details you can see as you stroll around the campus.

Be sure to stop at the James Turrell's "Twilight Epiphany" Skyspace near the music building and check out the acoustics and how the structure frames other buildings across a grassy quad.

Parking is limited. Campus police are vigorous.

“Beautiful and Efficient.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Lovely campus, private university and well run. Parking and street signs are an issue. Take your time if you are unfamiliar with the area.

“Neat to Pass Through & Look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

If you're not a student (or alum) & you're not attending a game or event, there's not much for you to do. It's a neat campus & worth a gander, but don't expect too much.

“Palazzo and cafe space? Yes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

The campus is a calm, green oasis in the midst of a bustling city. There are several very cool art installations scattered about the campus. Lots of outdoor seating by the buildings and cafes. The large courtyard by the statue of the founder reminds me of being in the garden of an Italian palazzo (possibly due to the trees). Convenient to public transportation.
