Smaller campus than we thought, but very nice. The main drag leading up to the campus gates had some great spots for people watching, dinner and nightlife. Glad we went.

It's a cute university with some amazing buildings and cute little stops on campus and around the university. Kinda a cute little hipster town. Good bars and shopping around.

I hope our son goes here- this is a great campus with friendly people and the best, most comprehensive and honest tour including financials, and options to see the "real thing."

The Arizona State Museum, which focuses on Native American culture and arts, was exceptional -- the museum shop and staff contributed greatly to the museum-going experience. The art and photography collections are also worthwhile.

I like this campus far more than the ASU campus. It actually feels like a university, and i feel its far more attractive than it's rivals in Tempe. The backfdop with the mountains is also nice. It's a great place to take in a football game in the fall, and the trendy shops and restaurants nearby are a nice feel.... More

Very impressed by this university. U of A does not miss a beat when it comes to caring about their students. The place is immaculate and the students are polite, and I loved just walking around the campus. Could not help going into the bookstore and buying U of A merchandise.

Beautiful grounds, sprawling campus and right outside the gates a great shopping area for the students. Plenty of clubs and places to grab a bite. I would love to have been a student there.
