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

Our child attended the University. Beautiful campus, with lots of history. Visit the Art Museum on the Southern part of campus.

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.

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.
