Just strolling on the university's campus is a treat in itself because of the variety of trees and flowers.

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
