Drove though ASU while in Tempe and it was an amazing a huge campus, luckily it was nearer the evening so there wasn't as many students out as there would have been, but its a pretty cool place. Lively, energetic, colorful just a cool place in all. Would go back just to see it.

I frequently travel to Arizona from New Mexico to see Broadway Theater. The Gammage Auditorium is a stunning piece of architecture especially at night. The seats are comfortable and the rows of seats leave enough room for patrons to pass comfortably by without stepping on toes. The only drawback is the extremely long lines for the ladies room, which was... More

We've seen the Phoenix campus & Tempe campus last year ...... Both campuses have differences but Tempe campus we like more. Our daughter is making Tempe her home this Junior year I/we are saddened by the young population that just want to get DRUNK.

Plan a little extra time to park this time of year. With classes starting next week, and the construction projects wrapping up, give yourself a little extra time. ASU continuing to update parking and housing for the next wave of our future

This is a review for Frank Lloyd Wright's Tempe Campus design, not the school itself. We visited the Campus to view Wright's architecture. It's immaculate and in my mind a must see attraction while in the area. I wonder how many students walk by this each day without realizing it's historical significance? The location is right on the AZ state... More

I graduated from ASU in 1979 and visit occasionally. New buildings and some changes are made, but it still maintains its history.

We have been to this site many times. It is great for kids too. My youngest (3) had no problem climbing all the way to the top of the mountain. There are stairs in the steep parts. I went to school at ASU and like to visit the campus when we visit the Scottsdale/Tempe area.

A friend drove me around the area and it was really awesome. Love the style of building and found people to be very friendly. We found this Greek restaurant that had lamb shanks, OMG they were awesome. the owner came out and greeted us. Best food

Lovely campus, friendly tour guides and faculty;admissions session was extremely helpful but visit would have been more advantageous if more time were devoted to areas of academic interest/major.
