Visit ASU

Come and see us! We want to make your campus visit as easy and informative as possible. You can get to know our four campuses, 300+ majors, and meet Bridging Success staff to learn how we support foster youth success at ASU. If you choose An Experience ASU program this will include a presentation on admissions, scholarships and financial aid, student housing, getting involved on campus and much more. You will also go on a student-led walking tour of campus. This is approximately a three-hour visit.
