When students return to the University of Arizona campus in August, it will have a lot of new popular stops.
No, nothing new has actually been built, but there are hundreds of Pokestops located around main campus.
I set out to make a complete list of them, but there are just too many. So let’s keep it to Arizona Athletics-related stops and gyms.

Hillenbrand Stadium: a hot-bed for home runs and ... Pokémon? #PokemonGO pic.twitter.com/gtax3BFRo8— Arizona Softball (@UA_Softball) July 11, 2016
No Pokestops at either Drachman Stadium (Track and Field) or Mulachy Stadium (soccer). There is one across the street from Mulachy at the Sabbar Shrine Temple on Tucson.
For all the Greek Life people out there, you should also know that there are tons of them at the various fraternity and sorority houses. Rush the right frat or sorority by picking one that is a Pokestop.
With all of these stops, it’s pretty likely that people will be spending even more time with their faces buried in their phones this upcoming season. But whoever rules the Arizona Stadium gym, shoutout to you.
