Active Years magazine lists ASU among its best
Active Years (AY) magazine is a Little Rock-based monthly magazine published by Vicki Vowell . AY focuses on cuisine, fashion, and travel for active lifestyles and recently included ASU in its selection "AY's Best," in the May 2008 20th anniversary edition. AY readers nominated businesses, venues, and individuals who provide the finest services and products in the state. ASU was voted best in-state college, tying with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. AY noted that the ASU System includes 10 colleges, several campuses, an honors college, a museum, and the Delta Studies Center. ASU also offers 36 degree programs, 157 fields of study, and remarkable faculty and staff.

Lecturers include ASU faculty, law enforcement personnel, professional investigators, and laboratory scientists. Students will also utilize ASUís libraries, labs, and advanced technology resources.
