The Campus is Beautiful!

It is a beautiful area tucked away from the bustle of the city, while being in the center of the city.

I have traveled all over the country and visit various campuses. This is a beautiful campus, in a great location. Buildings are all well maintained, and the grounds are extremely visually appealing. Lovely place to walk around, and great for game days.

My son is very interested in U of A and I was pleasantly surprised. The tour guides did a great job telling us the schools history and everything it has to offer. I thought they had top notch amenities and facilities. We are east coasters and it may be too far for him but it is a really nice school!!

Our son goes there. The university does a great job organizing move-in and keeping parents and students informed. It's a beautiful campus with a mix of historic buildings and modern. The main student center is great and the newly remodeled bookstore has to be the best I've seen in the country. There is plenty for students to do on and... More

Don't be fooled by the fact that admission is fairly easy - this is an excellent school that has done an amazing job in preparing students to thrive in school and beyone. We just dropped off our son to start his freshman year, and the move-in process couldn't have been easier. Almost uniformly students and staff are very friendly, and... More

Beautiful because they do a phenomenal job with the up keep of their trees, shrubs and flowers. Peaceful-while waiting for my daughter, who attends U of A, I sat on a bench and enjoyed the fabulous weather. Interesting-You can see museums, eat, shop or go to a Broadway show-though I did not attend a play while I was there. My... More

Took our daughter to visit U Of A over Memorial Day weekend. Most things were closed & quiet, since the school year had ended. We walked around the whole campus and was very impressed by the campus. It's a stunningly beautiful campus and very walkable.

The bookstore has been remodeled and is fantastic. The selection of clothing seems to have been upgraded also. We were there with our son and he just loved it.

An amazing day part of a day viewing paintings by American and European painters. The photography museum was also very interesting, as was the student exhibit which we saw.
