“Take a tour...wear decent walking shoes, hat and water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Lovely school with medical and law schools...enjoy a tour of the school...it's lots of walking. Make sure a large school is your preferred choice because you will be one of the numbers! Great food at the west side of the UofA....check out the new dorms!

“Beats ASU any day!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Having graduated from here in 1953 and also living in Tucson ever since I am obviously biased - but anyone will tell you that it better than Arizona State Normal School (University now)

“Superb University”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

U of A occupies a great deal of downtown Tucson and owns most of the rest. A land grant university it has been a main economic engine of the valley for well over a century. The various buildings, libraries, museums and quadrangles are welcoming to all visitors. If its football season the refurbished stadium is electric for PAC 12 games as is the legenary McHale Center for the Wildcats basketball. Swimming, baseball, softball and other sporting facilities welcome spectators either free or a minimal charge. The U of A is a huge part of Tucson and southern Arizona with a world class reputation in many educational categories
