Best Dann University in Arizona

If you live in Tucson you have to be a fan of the U of A. This campus is always bustling with energy and we have one of the best Basketball programs in the nation.

If you ever wondered where you can find trees from all over the world, come to the UA. It also has a public planetarium, the mirror lab for telescopes, a basketball, baseball and football stadium for exciting sports as well as many other athletic events. The Student Union is a great place to get a variety of food. The University... More

Very large campus in central Tucson. The mall around Old Main is grassy. Avoid visiting in summer. There are several museums, one on Arizona and Indians near the entrance to the University on Park and University. Parking for a fee and in parking garages, one near Administration building.

A walk through the campus was a walk-in-time. Graduating 50 years ago brought back fun times. Lots of changes, but still a beautiful place.

Love the atmosphere and the activity around the University of Arizona campus. Makes me feel young again. The HUGE grassy courtyard across the street from the ever so trendy shops. Even the nearby Walgreens seems cooler than other Walgreens stores. The trendy bars where the kids hang out are lit up with lights around the trees and it is especially... More

The campus is very nice. We go there several times for Broadway in Tucson and dinner at Main Gate Square.

Lotsa gorgeous SoCal chiquitas, and generally a fun place. I understand they also have academics, but wouldn't swear to it.

Go for a walk around the UofA and you can see the pride of the state, community and students today and past that have been a part of this University's tradition of excellence. It's a beautiful campus with a theme of red brick running throughout the buildings and walkways and art work located throughout. Usually there also will be some... More

Although the newer architecture doesn't fit well with the older structures on campus, the Main Gate area is lovely. There is even a fish pond secreted away right off Park Avenue just over the low stone wall! I love walking around the campus, it's nice at night when it's cooled off and quiet.
