Creating a student-centric space for master learners
In May 2018, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences moved into a new home in Armstrong Hall. The transformed first floor — nearly 46,000 square feet of remodeled space — contains a new academic advising and student services hub focused entirely on student success. The remodeled second floor will house the office of the dean's administration.
The college’s first stand-alone building since it was founded in 1954 totals 98,471 square feet of renovated space, with nearly half devoted to supporting students as they pursue their academic and career goals.
Armstrong Hall is also home to a new hub for students called the Futures Center. Built in partnership with ASU’s office of Career and Professional Development Services, the Futures Center is designed as a 21st-century career center for liberal arts and science majors.
Unparalleled student support
A source for inspiration
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences recognizes our central role in preparing our students for life after graduation. The Center will impart students with practical knowledge and abilities to become well-rounded professionals who are ready for the next phases of life, whether that’s entering the workforce, continuing education or gaining non-academic and life skills.

As we establish a physical space in Armstrong Hall for our students, alumni and local professionals to collaborate and learn about career development and civic engagement opportunities, we encourage our alumni and community supporters to get involved. There’s many ways you can make a positive impact through donating your time and expertise and helping fund key initiatives for the new space.
As we settle into our new space for our students, alumni and local professionals to collaborate and learn about career development and civic engagement, we invite our friends of the college, community leaders, alumni and corporate partnerships to get involved. You can learn about ways to get involved, naming opportunities in Armstrong Hall.

Armstrong Hall was named after John S. Armstrong. As the second youngest representative in the Thirteenth Legislative Assembly, Armstrong was appointed as chair of the House Education Committee. He introduced the legislative bill to establish higher education in the Territory of Arizona in 1885, including the Territorial Normal School at Tempe.
In 1901, the Arizona legislature instituted the official name as Tempe Normal School. Over the years, the school name has changed to Tempe State Teachers College, Arizona State Teachers College and Arizona State College. In 1958, the name was changed to Arizona State University through a vote of the people, which recognized its academic standing and prominence.
The numbers are in: 46,000 square feet, 40 professional staff, three advising hubs and one career center. This is what Armstrong Hall, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' new home, will dedicate to ensure students thrive during their time at Arizona State University and after they graduate.
When Joe Casavecchia transferred to Arizona State University from a small liberal arts college in Iowa, he wasn't sure if the transition would be easy.
This May, Arizona State University's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences dean’s office will be leaving its headquarters in the Fulton Center and moving to the newly renovated Armstrong Hall — the former home of ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law (now on the Downtown Phoenix campus).
