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.

Just completed a campus tour! It was awesome! It is a fairly large campus with a rich history and beautiful modern amenities. It is definitely our first choice! The student culture is top notch and everyone has great school spirit ❤️lovely tour.
