"Thunderbird" Glendale by Confucius

Glendale Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 153 photos

American Graduate School of Int'l Management

The campus was formerly an Air Force base that was used for training Chinese pilots during World War II. After the war it was converted into a unique school with a focus on global trade. Over a third of the student population is from around the world and Thunderbird alumni meet at traditional First Tuesday gatherings in many large US and international cities.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Soon to be the site of a new NFL football stadium for the Arizona Cardinals
  • Cons:Calling the other Phoenix suburb Tempe by telephone is charged as long distance by the local telephone company
  • In a nutshell:Glendale: More Than Just Decorative Orange Trees and Strip Malls!
  • Last visit to Glendale: May 1989

    I see years spent in dorms at Univ. of Wash & Thunderbird really paid off for our "Alfalfart"!!! Although Nickelodeon agrees with Buttwheat, Porky or Froggie would add a more nutritious thang.. sorry tang!!!

    I don't quite think "Alfalfart" goes well in a MANWICH. Why not Porky or Froggie? Much more nourishing and more vitamins and minerals. Goodness knows, you'll need all the nutrition you can get when the "Little Rascals 2003" starts filming.......
