You can’t think about Tempe without thinking about Arizona State University (ASU). ASU, located in the heart of Tempe, started out as a small teaching college in 1885 and has grown into one of the largest universities in the nation. There are several campuses spread throughout the metropolitan area. The largest is the Tempe Campus, the center of Arizona State University athletics, knowledge and cultural experiences.
A major part of the ASU experience is Arizona State University athletics. Whatever the sport -- baseball, football, basketball and more, the excitement and enthusiasm for the Arizona State University Sun Devils is contagious.
Scholastically, ASU has something to offer everyone: highly ranked colleges, first-class faculty members and increased importance on research. ASU became a Research 1 university in 1994. Culturally, with students from over 147 countries and hundreds of cities across the United States, students will mature and thrive in a rich, diverse environment. Each year, ASU continues to evolve with new programs, new facilities and new Arizona State University student admissions.
The ASU Tempe Campus is cutting-edge, full of life and spirited. To experience the culture of ASU, reserve a hotel room near campus, stroll down Mill Avenue, attend a game, or go to a Broadway show at ASU Gammage and enjoy everything that ASU has to offer.
