Help the community by answering this question:


ASU has had a significant impact on the downtown Phoenix region, both socially and economically. Several top departments now call downtown Phoenix home including the Cronkite School, the nations largest nursing college, the ASU/UofA medical college and much more.

The student population, both part and full time, is in the 13,000 range with an anticipated student population rising up to nearly 20,000 in the next five years. Students bring so much to the table besides tuition and associated jobs.

A group of Cronkite students created an Iphone app called SmartPHX which allows people to finds restaurants, bars, music, arts, sports and other events when in the downtown region. This benefits people visiting the city as well as locals.

The campus has been and continues to contribute to downtown Phoenix's vitality and success. It was, in part, why I chose to be a downtown Phoenix real estate specialist.
