“Alumni weekend is wonderful, also great campus for all to visit”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

They really go all out for alumni, with many free events throughout the campus. Alumni or not, there are many attractions to this beautiful historic urban campus. Lots of green space and quads, a great bookstore, several art galleries with both traveling world class exhibitions, and in house collections. Visit the Arthur Ross gallery, the Institute for Contemporary Art, and the Furness building. The architecture is striking, and don't miss the University Museum with all of its antiquities.

“Don't Miss the Egyptian Exhibition.!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

This exhibition is great with many pieces that were discovered by a dig team from the university including the central item a Sphinx. There are also a number of original columns from a temple plus many other items including mummies. We had a professor give us a tour and while he gave us a great deal of information it could have been shorter so that we had more time to roam around on our own which is what I would recommend.
