As students, it can be easy to stay within the bubble of college life. Universities often have all of the necessary resources to feed, house, clothe and entertain you, but there is so much more to explore outside of the University of Arizona's campus.

Walking is not just a means of transportation, it is a way of life. Walkability is core to a city’s identity, and this holds true for Tucson despite being smaller than some of the more iconic walkable cities like New York City or Tokyo. A large portion of Tucson’s walkability and ease of transportation comes from convenient access to the Sun Link, which may be subject to a change in January when fare-free riding is set to expire.
