Today's 20 colleges and 11 schools are a far cry from the days when students rode across the desert and tied up their ponies on the rails of "Old Main" in 1885. Now there are around 30,000 "Wildcats" served by a more than 1,700 scholars on three campuses at this "Public Ivy", whose 387 acres appropriately include the oldest green space in Tucson.
