“Let it pass.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Let it pass. Not really anything to do. Some want UNA to move to Division IA football, but $$$ & community support not there. New campus design needs help. Does not address parking needs.

“Architectural history lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Frederick Olmstead designed the campus, grounds and buildings alike. Bibb Graves Hall has new windows that kind of stick out with the architecture. Mostly neo-Gothic. Plus there is a habitat for the two mascots, Leo III and Una, both Nubian lions. It was well designed and has been a huge attraction for local schools. The current pair are the third, as indicated by Leo's suffix.

“UNA, Home of the Lions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The University is spread out over several acres of well manicured green space, walk ways, and constant improvement with new contruction going on. One of the favorite sites on campus is the visit to see the live mascots, Leo and Una, who came to the university as cubs and have grown up on the campus, becoming an intregal part of university life. The campus combines the old with the new, blending the construction in a seamless transition from history to present day.

“Great campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

If looking for a place to relax, just walk around the campus. See the mascot lions or relax by the fountains.
Graduated here in 1985 so it is sentimental place. However, don't just drive on by, stop and smell the roses.
