Arizona State University--West

Arizona State University is a comprehensive public research university that measures itself by whom it includes and how they succeed; advances research and discovery of public value; and assumes fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves. ASU champions intellectual and cultural diversity. Its research is use-inspired, breaking the boundaries that traditionally separate academic disciplines. ASU has been named the #1 school in the country for innovation by U.S. News & World Report for the last two years, ahead of #2 Stanford and #3 MIT. ASU's West campus in northwest Phoenix provides a learning community that blends liberal arts education with 21st-century leadership preparation, and welcomes students studying business, health care, education, and interdisciplinary arts and sciences. Undergraduate and graduate programs offer the resources of one of the top public research universities in the country within a community-based learning environment. At ASU, students customize their college experiences by augmenting their classroom study with opportunities for research, study abroad, leading student clubs, volunteering and more. Students can also customize the way they learn, choosing 7.5- or 15-week semesters, online or in-person classes, obtaining concurrent degrees or pursuing a master's degree while earning an undergraduate degree. ASU emphasizes innovation and entrepreneurship -- here students can invent products or start ventures with the full guidance and support of the university. ASU's West campus has the latest amenities in its residence halls, dining facilities, and the Sun Devil Fitness Complex and swimming pool.
