From the moment you step onto ASU’s West campus, you will know what a special place it is, from well-manicured courtyards and shaded breezeways to the inviting nooks and crannies that invite you to curl up with a book or discuss life with a classmate. Arizona State University at the West campus is a comprehensive campus that balances the tradition of a liberal arts education with responsiveness to the demands and dynamics of work force requirements. Faculty within each of its three colleges are committed to providing undergraduate and graduate teaching and research that is innovative, interdisciplinary, collaborative and solution-based. ASU’s West campus serves a diverse student body of nearly 9,000 students. The campus is nestled on 300 acres in the heart of northwest Phoenix – the centerpiece of a burgeoning region representing a new frontier of commerce, sports, recreation, arts, and lifelong learning opportunities. Las Casas, a beautiful apartment-style residential complex on the campus’ west side, features on-site recreation facilities, including a community center, modern computer lab, tutoring lab, swimming pool, and sand volleyball court. The campus, designated a Phoenix “Point of Pride,” offers more than 50 degrees in undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs, and each year academic program offerings expand to meet increased work force and marketplace demands. Students can choose degree opportunities in high-demand subjects such as applied computing, natural sciences, teacher education, criminal justice, nursing, global business and accountancy. Graduates are equipped to enter rapidly changing fields such as biotechnology, life sciences, business and education, among others. Faculty administrators engage with the community to develop and deliver distinctive programs that prepare graduates for exciting career paths. Faculty-student research partnerships address current and emerging societal issues of importance. With a deep understanding of community economic development issues, social justice, and emerging global change, students and alumni serve society in local, regional, national and international capacities.
