Large university/urban campus. Plenty of food and drink options of varied types. Very walkable campus, but can be crowded, and difficult to maneuver the street.

Hardly the prosaic campus scene of so many places we have visited. Strange mix of old and new construction- sort of squeezed in wherever they can find space. Winters must be brutal for getting around. Is nice having 2 major cities available for culture and...More

Was in town for business, and the hotel was on campus- and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like it! Gorgeous, clean campus with lots to do. I hate to say it, but it's nicer than the Big 10 campus in my town!
