“Park drinking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

You can only enjoy here when it's scorching hot. Sit on the grass and drink drink and smoke. Great buildings and grounds

“Walkabout tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Liked the University but everything was closed. The bookstore/shop was also low on inventory.
Next time go when the Unversity is open.

“Lovely grounds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

An interesting walk through the downtown campus allows you to see the amazing architecture. An interesting mix of old and new.

“a great university, but not tourist friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

It's a great university and it has a great campus with a lot of interesting stuff, it's just not meant to be a tourist attraction. It doesn't have a single focal point where everyone would take an instantly recognizable picture, doesn't have "tourist must see walking trail path" or anything like that. So it just doesn't feel visitor friendly. And, frankly, it doesn't have to be since it's a school, not a tourist spot.
