Arizona State University is a public research university located in Phoenix, Arizona. It was founded in 1885 as the Tempe Normal School, and in 1958, it changed its name to the name we know today.
Arizona State is the largest public university by enrollment in the country, and it has been classified by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education as a research university with very high research activity (RU/VH). Arizona State is one of only 78 American public universities to receive such a designation.
Since 2005, Arizona State has been placed among the Top 50 research universities in the country, counting both public and private, based on their research output, innovation, development, research expenditures, number of patents awarded, and number of research grant proposals awarded. The Center for Measuring University Performance lists ASU at number 31 among the top public research universities in the United States.
Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees are all offered by Arizona State in a total of 16 colleges/school in five locations. Arizona State’s “online campus” also hosts 41 undergraduate degree programs, as well as programs for 37 graduate degrees and 14 graduate or undergraduate certificates, earning the school a Top 10 rating in “Best Online Programs.”
It is important to note that some courses may have higher minimum requirements than others due to academic standards at Arizona State being rather high. Students should submit their official transcripts with their ACT and/or SAT scores. Those who are non-native English speakers should submit their TOEFL and/or IELTS scores as well. The non-refundable application fee is $65, and applications can be submitted by mail or online, the latter of which being the preferred method.
There are 72,254 students enrolled at Arizona State University, and of that number, 80 percent of students are studying at the undergraduate level. 18.4 percent of the student body is made up of international students who hail from 120 countries, and of the total number of attendees at the school, 36 percent of the student body are the first generation of their family to become university-educated.
Arizona State also has an active extracurricular involvement program, referred to as the Sun Devil Involvement Center. The SDIC is located on the third floor of the Memorial Union, and it provides such opportunities to students as involvement in sororities/fraternities, clubs, community service and leadership programs, and student government positions.
Arizona State’s athletic teams compete in Division I of the NCAA, and they are all collectively referred to as Arizona State Sun Devils. They are also members of the Pacific-12 Conference and have won a total of 23 national championships.
Arizona State is home to over 1,100 registered student organizations across all of its campuses. Presently, the college’s campus housing is enough to accommodate one of the largest residential populations in the country with over 13,000 residents on campus. This number is expected to continue to grow, as the university is working on expanding their on-campus housing.
Famous alumni who have graduated from Arizona State University include the late football player/serviceman Pat Tillman, actor David Spade, retired baseball player Reggie Jackson, singer Linda Ronstadt, and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
