Comfortable, architecturally interesting, well maintained campus in Tuscon. The food hall has many cheap, healthy food options, which is the main reason I wrote this.

Beautiful buildings and well-kept common areas. There's a lot of history with this higher school of learning of which Arizonans should be proud. We learned (but unfortunately ran out of time to visit) that below the football stadium is one of the world's finest telescope...More

Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you weren't able to take the tour of the Richard F. Caris Mirror Lab, maybe on another trip. Best to you.

We went to a concert for the Leonard Bernstein Festival. Very well attended and performed. Some of the music and theater arts grad students performed and they were outstanding. Ate the food court of the student center. Lots of choices.

The U of A grounds are lovely and (on weekends at least) peaceful. The architecture is not overwhelming, but it is attractive. Worth a short walk on a lazy day.

For those who miss academia like we do this is an inspiring place. Centennial Hall, restaurants, museums, and the trolley are fun things to visit and observe never mind watching students hustle to class or enjoy their campus life.
