“beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I'm a student there and it's absolutely beautiful. One of the most wonderful campuses in the US. There's little things to do but the place is really beautiful.

“A respite in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I always enjoy the central quad on campus, and the last time I went it was a walk to a bookstore nearby and lunch from one of the carts.

“For the Archeologist and Ethnologist in You”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Well, It's almost over, but the special exhibit, The Maya: Lords of Time was well mounted and explained. Parking in the area is horribly expensive, so if you are at a hotel chat up the concierge re public transportation. The underground stop is about a ten minute walk.

“Get lunch at a truck and find a place to sit on college green”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Ben Franklin sits at the center of the campus and it's a great spot to sit and consider what 250 has done on this city campus with a green heart. From the Ben Franklin statue you will have a 360 view of the architecture over the decades and the student traffic year-round is fun to watch.
