ASU's athletic teams compete in Division I of the NCAA and are collectively known as the Arizona State Sun Devils. They are members of the Pacific-10 Conference and have won 23 national championships.

ASU describes itself as "one university in many places", meaning that it is not a system with separate campuses, and not one main campus with branch campuses.[21]}} ASU's colleges, schools, and departments are spread across four campuses, with each campus hosting a unique set of colleges and schools, and offering both undergraduate and graduate programs.[22] In addition to the physical campuses, ASU includes a fifth "virtual campus" for online and extended education.

Tempe campus
ASU's Tempe campus is located in downtown Tempe, Arizona, about eight miles (13 km) east of downtown Phoenix. The campus is considered urban, and is approximately 642 acres (2.6 km ) in size. The campus is arranged around broad pedestrian malls and is completely encompassed by an arboretum.
[23][24] 2

The Tempe campus is also the largest of ASU's campuses, with 58,371a[] students

enrolled in its programs.[3] The Tempe campus is ASU's original campus, and Old Main, the first building constructed, still stands today. There are many notable landmarks on campus, including Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Palm Walk, which is lined by 111 palm trees,[25] Charles Trumbull Hayden Library, the University Club Building, and University Bridge. In addition, the campus has an extensive public art collection, considered one of the ten best among university public art collections in America according to Public Art Review.[26] Against the northwest edge of campus is the Mill Avenue district (part of downtown Tempe) which has a college atmosphere that attracts many students to its restaurants and bars. The Tempe campus is also home to all of the university's athletic facilities.

West campus
The West campus was established in 1984 by the Arizona Legislature and sits on 250 acres (1.0 km2) in a suburban area of northwest Phoenix. The West campus lies about 12 miles (19 km) northwest of downtown Phoenix, and about 18 miles (29 km) northwest of the Tempe campus. The west campus is home to the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, and selected programs of the W.P. Carey School of Business. The West campus primarily consists of five cloistered academic buildings arranged around a quad, with several smaller satellite buildings housing auxiliary and administrative offices. The West campus is designated as a Phoenix Point of Pride,[27] and in 2011, construction was completed on a 4.6MW solar array that powers nearly the entire campus with solar power.[28] [edit]Polytechnic

The newest of ASU's four campuses, the Downtown Phoenix campus was established in 2006 on the
[29] north side of Downtown Phoenix. The campus has an urban design, with several large modern

academic buildings intermingled with commercial and retail office buildings.

In response to demands for lower-cost public higher education in Arizona, ASU is developing a number of small, undergraduate-only college campuses throughout Arizona. These campuses will be teachingfocused, and will provide a selection of popular undergraduate majors. The first two of these campuses are being planned for Payson, Arizona andLake Havasu City, Arizona.[31]

In 2008, 31% of first time freshmen were ranked in the top 10% of their high school class.[34] Barrett, The Honors College serves as its own college-within-a-university, and maintains much more strict admissions standards and provides a more rigorous curriculum with smaller classes and increased faculty interaction.[35] Although there are no set minimum admissions criteria for Barrett College, the average GPA of incoming freshmen was 3.84, with average SAT scores of 1308/1600 and ACT scores of 29.[36] The Honors college enrolls nearly 3000 undergraduate students, about 540 of whom are National Merit Scholars.[37] [edit]Academic
