5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are many places to shope and many activities and athletics.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: ASU is located in Tempe, AZ and there are a lot of community colleges near by. These people interact with ASU students because they usually plan on transferring to ASU eventually. There is a light rail for transportation along with busses that run all the time. Downtown phoenix has Chase field, and there is an ASU campus in downtown phoenix as well. There is a lot of things to do, especially on Mill if you like bars and clubs and stuff like that.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love living in the heart of downtown Phoenix because it is a half mile away from US Airways Center where the Suns play. The Suns have $5 college nights for each home game so I have gone to 21 games so far this season. Also, there are tons of concerts at the arena. I have seen Drake, Justin Timberlake, and Imagine Dragons there. Right next to US Airways Center is Chase Field where the Diamondbacks play. I have gone to eight games there so far and I love how it is just a 10 minute walk from my dorm. I am living off-campus next semester, but remaining downtown because I love the atmosphere of downtown Phoenix.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: the surrounding places are a little unsafe. There is a lot of small cute places you can go if you're interested in that. Most people around here usually commute to the Tempe campus for fun activities. If you're into sporting events like basketball and baseball we are near the stadiums. There is art and science museums.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Professional sports stadiums are within walking distance. First Fridays are popular. There are a lot of homeless people, though.
