We took the summer event dormitory option during our visit of 4-5 days of an event at the Convention Center. The rooms were clean and adequate for our needs, and the shared bathrooms were more convenient and available than anticipated.The bus service was frequent and the drivers helpful in getting us to our destinations.

The campus itself is probably not of interest to the tourist, because is is the second largest university in the country, and spread over square miles. However, there is always something going on, be it sports, music, drama or whatever.

What an awesome campus! Get on your walking shoes and take a tour of the largest university in America! It is beautiful!!! There are three great places to sit and have breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the Students Union: Woody's...Sloopy's...or the Market Place which is a "food court" concept! We have eaten at all three and would recommend all three!!!... More

We enjoyed our visit to the cartoon collection which covers everything from 18th century political cartoons to modern comic strips, with original cartoons drawn by famous and familiar artists.

Two day orientation was very well organized but take your walking shoes. The campus is big but accessible and very pretty. there was a lot of information that was given but most if not all of the videos were on line and we had already seen them. The speakers were great and most very funny.

There was some sort of music festival going on, so parking to just walk around was an issue. I'm not paying $20 to walk campus for a little bit. We ended up in a parking garage on the other side of campus. A lot of things were closed on a Sunday afternoon, which was a bummer. Walking the campus was... More

Lots of changes since I was there in early 80's. Lots of new buildings and dorms. Students entering fall of 2015 have to stay in dorms for 2 years now. Campus still very nice and open and the new buildings provide a fresh look. Library is impressive too.
