Arizona State University (ASU) was founded as the Territorial Normal School in 1885—over a quarter century before Arizona entered the Union in 1912—in Tempe, a town just east of Phoenix.
The school has undergone numerous name changes over the years, notably to Tempe State Teachers College in 1925, to Arizona State College in 1945, and, finally, to Arizona State University in 1958.
Today, ASU comprises 17 colleges and schools spread across four metropolitan Phoenix campuses (in Tempe, in downtown Phoenix, in Glendale, and in Mesa).
Additionally, there is an online campus and a satellite campus in Lake Havasu City in the northwestern part of the state, as well as more-limited regional learning programs in Thatcher, Yuma, and Tucson.
The overall student body number is approximately 111,000 individuals, including online students.

Our answer to this is to show you the disciplines in which a school's faculty and alumni have had the highest historical influence. A school may be influential in a discipline even if they do not offer degrees in that area. We've organized two lists to show where they are influential and offer corresponding degrees, and where they are influential through scholarship although they don't offer degrees in the disciplines.
