I’ve been living in Tucson for over four years now, it was finally time to give a guide of all the great places Tucson has to offer. One thing for sure is that you will NEVER be bored in this city and that is one of the main reasons I love living here. There will always be something to do, somewhere new to try, and always something to come back for.

The U of A is one of the pillars of Tucson’s community, forming (both literally and figuratively) the heart of the city. This bustling campus anchors other vibrant areas of Tucson including the popular hangout Main Gate Square. When a football or basketball game is going on or when events like The Tucson Festival of Books take over the campus, they also take over the city creating an atmosphere that is inescapable. With chants of “ARI-ZONA” resonating throughout the area, anyone who sets foot on this campus can immediately understand why Tucson is proud to be a big city with a college town at its core. At the U of A, you’ll learn how we Bear Down!
