Took a walking tour of the campus with our daughter, a student here. New and old architecture, very beautiful campus. This campus is HUGE; lots of students/traffic/bicycles. Be prepared to do a LOT of walking when visiting. Many cafe's/eatery's along the way. Highly recommended.

Such a great campus! Where else do you get to see a John Deere tractor with a manure spreader driving down the campus drive, going past the football stadium?! Awesome mixture of nature, people, art, architecture, state of the art research labs , and more!...More
