U of A Things to do in Tucson Arizona

The University of Arizona is one of the state’s oldest institutions that is known not only for its excellence in academics, research and athletics, but also for its wide variety of interesting sights and activities.  Touring the University of Arizona campus is a great thing to do in Tucson.

A good place to begin your tour is with McKale Memorial Center, the UofA’s basketball and volleyball arena.  Surrounding the inside of the arena are retired jerseys of past players and many banners from the Wildcats’ past victories including the 1997 NCAA National Championship for Men’s Basketball.

If you or a loved one are sports fans, the University of Arizona campus is filled with great facilities to explore, such as Arizona Stadium, Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium and Aquatic Center, and Bear Down Gym.

For those looking for a more academic tour, the University of Arizona campus includes the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab, which produces mirrors for the world’s largest telescopes.  You can also go to the Arizona State Museum to learn about Arizona’s rich cultural history and see many Native American artifacts.  We recommend visiting the Center for Creative Photography, which houses one of the most comprehensive Ansel Adams collection, and was also founded by Adams himself!
