The campus is pretty but besides the beautiful surrounding area, and lovely Downtown district, there is not much else nearby.

Such a great campus! Where else do you get to see a John Deere tractor with a manure spreader driving down the campus drive, going past the football stadium?! Awesome mixture of nature, people, art, architecture, state of the art research labs , and more!...More

I love visiting the campus whenever I am back in town. It is so inviting and I love eating at the Coffeehouse, which still has some of my favorites.

Park near Whole Foods and walk the Arboretum. Take your bikes and ride all over campus, super bike friendly when the students are gone.
