Beautiful campus! Great location in the middle of the city with easy access to everything around. Parking a little tough during the school year but easy enough to walk around if needed.

We enjoyed our tour of the campus although our guide could have talked a bit less and shown a big more. We did however love the campus - it is beautiful.

We took the day to walk around this beautiful campus. Loved the horseshoe! The campus is large and kind of spread out but there are plenty of green spaces to check out and relax. The football stadium is amazing!!
