The universe did a great job of moving everyone in and out in a timing manner. University President actually has a sense of humor given his narrow views. GREAT and memorable weekend.

The football stadium appeared to seat over 100,000 but after research average seating capacity. Still curious about all the brick buildings attached to stadium? Athletic offices?

Not to my knowledge. They do have a circus on campus.
We would be coming on 10/17/15. What will be open? Can we see a football game?

If you want a structured tour I suggest that you contact the admissions office. They can also guide you on the other activities as well. Good luck and have a great time.
