My son and I visited ASU this week and were extremely impressed. Despite the urban legend that ASU is only a party school, the university has upped its game academically dramatically. U.S. News and World Report has rated ASU #1 in innovation for the last three years running, over schools like MIT and Stanford. We found the students and school staff to be very friendly and welcoming, and coupled with the beautiful campus and excellent weather this is a spectacular school. The campus is very flat and easy to get about by foot, bicycle or skate board.

Let me see....Arizona "STATE" University gets its money from Arizona taxpayers, but everywhere I look Tempe is full of foreign students who most likely are paying double or triple tuition. Nothing against foreign students I think they're great, but I thought this was a state funded university? I think I even saw ASU run a wasteful local TV ad during the Superbowl in 2017 and I'm pretty sure enrollment has always been up and that ad was to just wave their flag around at taxpayer expense. Has anyone noticed the expansion of this school? It is not only growing outward, it is going upward too. Where is all this money coming from? Hmmm. Very interesting.

The architecture is varied and beautiful. The grounds are clean and nicely landscaped. The campus has lots of places to sit to study and socialize. Very impressed!

I have visited a few times, and there is something about the atmosphere that just makes it exciting. Lots of events happening, great restaurants and lodging, and a short but cool hike up A Mountain
