Arizona State University Description:

Arizona State University has a complex structure with four campuses: the main campus in Tempe, the Downtown Campus in Phoenix, the West Campus in Phoenix, and the Polytechnic Campus in Mesa. With over 51,000 students, the Tempe campus is one of the largest in the country. Arizona State has a reputation as a party school, but it does have well-respected academic programs in Education, Business and Engineering, to name a few. It was also awarded a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa for its strengths in the liberal arts and sciences. The Arizona State Sun Devils (What's a Sun Devil?) compete in the NCAA Division I Pacific 12 Conference.
