Campus Visit Notes for The University of Arizona
The main "college bar" road where the students hang out is located in the middle of campus, unlike for example Indiana's which is just off campus. For example, walking around at night you could come in contact with a stranger in a UofA parking garage. Since the "college town" road is in the middle of campus, not everyone you see on campus is affiliated with the unversity. Not that big of a deal but just something to be aware of.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Stayed at the best western about a mile away from campus. From the outside it looked like a piece of crap but our room turned out to be pretty good.(as well as cheap) Plus they give you free hot break
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Many good restaurants on 4th avenue and university blvd.
