Moving into the dorm is one of the rites of passage in college, and ASU does it right: In addition to providing music, games and crews of volunteers who run the move-in process like a well-oiled machine, the university takes a community-minded approach to hall assigments. ASU places students in specific halls based on their academic major, helping to create close-knit communities and build a foundation that spurs academic success throughout their time at the university.

The Tempe campus welcomed 11,000 residents; 1,280 at the Downtown Phoenix campus; 1,250 at Polytechnic; 550 at West; and 117 at Thunderbird School of Global Management.
