As part of the process of applying to grad school, I thought I'd check out where I'd be living.

So, Tucson. This would be the biggest geographic shift for me, and while I've been once (to talk to some UA faculty), I didn't spend much time there.

Weather? Besides "hot and dry", of course.

Bike friendly? The professor I talked to (had his bike in his office!) seemed to think so. What about the campus area?

Best and worst things about living there?

Cost of living?

Any words of wisdom regarding the campus area?

Anything else?

Indian food is probably too much to hope for, but maybe Tucson's a little different from Phoenix...? I hope...?
