Great campus, nice ball fields and stadiums and a student union with many restaurants and small eateries Stopped for bagels, pastries, and coffee at Einstein bagel right in the heart of the union. Prices are fair and the food was prepared by college kids.

We visited the Tucson campus to see the John Cleese/Eric Idle show at the Centennial Hall. Very beautiful campus with a very nice large concert hall with very friendly staff. The area also has good restaurants and shops, nice trendy area.

The campus was nice and fun to walk around. The bookstore is amazing and was already decorated for Christmas when we visited. Lots of nice shops and restaurants nearby to enjoy.

Came here to enjoy a good game, and saw my alma mater get crushed by UofA. My kid is a Wildcat, so we have anger issues on both sides of the fence. Anyway, I'm a handicap Vet and Detective. The caveat to that is there was another ASU handicap guy next to us and someone behind us from UofA was... More

My children and I cycled the University grounds while my husband was giving a guest lecture. Walking or cycling is the way to see this place. Cars are poorly tolerated (great) but you still need your wits about you on a bicycle. Pedestrians are oblivious to anyone or anything within the University grounds. They will step out in front of...

It is a beautiful area tucked away from the bustle of the city, while being in the center of the city.
