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.

Took my 16 year old granddaughter here for a visit and she was very impressed with the campus tour. Beautiful buildings and close to lots of places to eat afterwards to get a real feel of the college life.

There are museums to visit on campus (anthropology, astronomy, paleontology, and more), a lovely area to walk in, particularly on the west side, among the "older" parts of the UA, and don't forget the Tucson Festival of Books, a FREE two-day blow-out in early may...More

U of A Tucson is an older smaller University. We visited with my wife's son from China. I don't think he was interested but he should have been.

I knew many attorneys in the Bay Area who went to the UofA for undergrad degree and then on to law school at Rogers School of Law. Tucson fondly remembered for climate, friendliness, small town atmosphere; attitude of citizens--hip and non-judgmental.

Thank you, we appreciate your comments. If you get a chance to visit again, check out Main Gate Square, adjacent to the west end of campus, or Fourth Avenue, for great food and shopping. Both are accessible on the streetcar route.
