It's a huge stadium, suitable for the graduation ceremony (which we attended). Plenty of bathrooms, not much of anything else.

The seats are a little hard and you might be a little sore by the end of it so suggest to bring a seat cushion. View seems pretty good from most areas. Also, if you are using game day parking be prepared for a bit...More

You might want to go to a campus bar and take a shuttle. Most off-street parking,like along Hessel Park, are also a walk. Good luck.

No tours, just open to the public for events. Check with the University Athlete office there are events that you can attend that don't have the crowds!
