Get to Know Tucson
We want to be sure that you are getting familiar with your new home away from home and so we have a couple of programs planned to get you out and about.
During the program, you will participate in our Taste of Tucson tours. During these tours, you will join a tour guide who will take you to several local restaurants so you can get a feel for local Tucson fare. The exact locations change each summer, but include stops on University Blvd., 4th Avenue, and Downtown. Plus, you'll travel with your tour group on the Tucson SunLink Streetcar so you will be able to learn how to get around town easily.
The day after you move from your summer hall to your academic year housing, you will also be able to select one of our Meet Tucson Excursions, trips to popular Tucson destinations, so you can become more familiar with all Tucson has to offer. Excursions include
- Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
- Pima Air and Space Museum
- Biosphere 2
- La Encantada premium shopping mall
- Roadhouse Cinemas
- and more!
