The university has many old, beautiful buildings along with many new buildings showing the growth of the school. With fountains, flowers, an amphitheater, and a real lion habitat, the university is a very welcoming place for students and visitors. The school presents many concerts and festivals in addition to its excellent academic program and adult educational opportunities.

The campus of UNA keeps getting prettier and prettier. As a proud graduate, I've loved seeing all of the changes they've made over the years. It provides many lovely photo opts, such as the fountain or in front of Weslyan Hall (the castle). Since UNA's mascot is the lion, UNA houses a few lions inside of a beautiful caged area... More

I love this campus. Visit Leo and Una and be amazed. They roar and interact with the students on campus. The Laura Harrison Fountain is beautiful with the rest of campus.

Having went to college here, I might be a little partial to the school. I also witnessed during my last year here the refurbishing of the inner streets. The Streets were made into walks with beautiful fountains. The largest fountain was brought in from Italy. It is beautiful. They also built a new habitat for Leo & Una, the UNA... More

We watched the Lions be fed in the late afternoon and then walked the campus for a bit and ended up in the food court for a Starbucks coffee. A nice one hour to see UNA

The lion habitat is definitely worth seeing. It's much like what you would find at a zoo but you can enter and stay as long as you like for free. The area is beautiful and children and adult alike enjoy seeing the lions.

The lion habitat at UNA is a beautiful enclosure complete with waterfall. What a beautiful campus. Walk nearby to the Pub Museum and see the old Sears mail order houses built in the 1920's.

Graduated here in 1979 and what a great time it was! One of the best business schools I could have attended. Fantastic sports and social life.
