The new ASU California Center

ASU has been named the most innovative university in America by U.S. News & World Report — each of the past six years! Our innovative mindset has expanded to Los Angeles, bringing world-class instruction and the New American University to a brand new campus location, the ASU California Center in the historic Herald Examiner Building. You’ll have support both in and out of the classroom at ASU’s new home in downtown L.A.
