Went for a walk and a bike ride through the campus. It is clean and exceedingly bike friendly. It was not too crowded in July.

We brought our daughter for a campus visit because she is considering it for college in a year. The campus is well laid out and very inviting. Boulder creek runs through the area. There are many paths for bikes and pedestrians. The tour guides were really helpful - gave us a great understanding of the student life on campus. Tuition... More

In the Old Main museum is the best Lego Display around. IT has most of the important buildings on campus recreated. Times of it being open are limited.

We toured the campus with a couple who are alumni, which was helpful to understand what we were seeing. But it's a beautiful Italian Renaissance-style campus with local stone. It was great to tour, even on a Sunday during summer quarter.
