Arizona State University, located in Tempe, Arizona, is a large public university founded in 1886, making it the first higher education institution in the state. ASU also has campuses in downtown Phoenix, in Glendale, a Polytechnic in Mesa, in Lake Havasu City, and online, which all together offer 17 colleges and schools, as well as numerous centers and institutes. The university’s School of Earth and Space Exploration has worked closely with NASA a few times, including when sending the “Curiosity” to Mars, and ASU takes part in the NASA Space Grant Program. The university also opened the first Biodesign Institute, the first School of Sustainability, and the first residential Honors College in the US.
Arizona State University is a great school. I attend the Walter Cronkite School for students of Mass Communication and Journalism and I love the experience I have gained from the college. I feel prepared for future jobs and work experience.

Arizona State University- Tempe is great for those who want a large university feel, with small classes if you choose. The pricing is good, and they offer lots of scholarships and financial aide, especially for in state. I really like how there are a lot of great resources, like free tutoring, to help students keep up.
