Well laid out and delightfully green campus, more like parkland than a traditional campus, with fountains and very appealing architecture. Some nice eateries on the approach road, too. The whole area has a very pleasant buzz and feel to it.

This was our sixth time and it was the best yet. Great authors, very well organized, plenty of amenities. Couldn't ask for a better event. And it's free to boot. Held during spring break at the University.

Have been to well over 50 different campuses and this is a top 5 visually. Nice to see during the school year when there is a lot of activity. Well maintained. Worth the walking tour to do on your own.

I'm writing this from the prospective of a non-student. The UofA campus is very pretty, located downtown Tucson. Palm tree-lined streets, brick buildings, etc. Also love the number of public events available to the rest of the community.
