The best school in Arizona, ASU is widely known as the Harvard of the Southwest. Since President Crow has revitalized the academic atmosphere of the prestigious institution, ASU has become a hub for higher learning and education. Although not an Ivy League school, ASU is number one in innovation (ahead of Stanford and MIT) and has division one athletics, attracting the best athletes the US has to offer. In the process of dropping off the 'party school' list, ASU has securely cemented itself at the top of the academic ladder, earning the moniker 'Harvard of the Southwest'.
