Zaragoza is a super tranquil and gorgeous city, with beauty and culture around every corner. It also sets you in great stead for connections to other places in Spain too, something you must take advantage of.
In the south of the city lies José Labordeta Park. It's an incredibly peaceful and beautiful area, great for reading and running. I would take a detour through it daily on my walk to the University.
It is an ancient walled town in the mountains, which admittedly is a bit of a trek to get to, but you'll never forget it. It's so small you can walk the length of it in about 15 minutes, but it is packed full of delicious bakeries and restaurants etc, anything you'd want and need for a quick break away. Another great place is Turuel whilst on the train up.
Next to it there is also , their football stadium. My stay wouldn't have been the same if I couldn't have gone to their matches, where the atmosphere is electric and the people are so inclusive.
There are also many great student bars near the university, with extremely cheap drinks, and a vast variety of delightful tapas in the centre.
